Pancakes are waffles are that comfort food that never gets old. I could eat them at any meal, any time of day, in any season. Especially when they a jam-packed with vegetables. I don’t know if you’ve noticed, but lately I’ve been adding veggies to my baked goods. It started off with brownies, then moved on to muffins, and now it’s all about pancakes. Because let’s face it, adding veggies to sweets makes us feel good about ourselves…at least it does for me. When you take a bite of these pancakes, you’re getting nutrients like vitamin K, vitamin A, manganese, folate, copper, vitamin B2, vitamin B6, vitamin E, calcium, and vitamin C, all because of two simple veggies that you can’t even taste. This is how you lie to your children. Or even your picky husband. And if you have a picky husband, maybe just get rid of him and eat these pancakes on your own. People who are picky about the food YOU make them need a good ole’ wholesome smack to the face.
I think I’m feeling a little spicy today. Probably because I got a spray tan yesterday and slept in it. So I’m smelling like a huge pile of chemicals this morning. I miss the days when I didn’t worry about getting skin cancer from the tanning bed. I would go in, fry my body, take a shower, and be tan AF for months. Now I have shave my entire body, get sprayed down, wear clothes that cover everything so I don’t get the tanner on the couch, then sleep in a separate blanket from my husband so I don’t stain our sheets, and wake up smelling like someone dipped me in poison. All so I can wear a dress when I get to Utah this week without being self conscious of my pale calves. I’m heading to Salt Lake City this afternoon for a conference about 30 minutes outside of the city. OH, just a heads up, if you’re in Salt Lake City, we (meaning Cassy, Lexi and I) are hosting a Beautycounter meet-up at the Kimpton Hotel Monaco (15 West 200 South; Salt Lake City, UT 84101) on Friday, May 3rd at 3:00 pm. It was planned a little last minute but we hope you can come if you’re in the area! Please RSVP by clicking HERE just so we know how many are coming! I’ve never been to SLC, but if you have any restaurant recommendations, I welcome them with open arms!
Anywho, I need to go get my shower on BEFORE I work out. Just another annoyance about spray tanning. But…it’s all worth it…right? Riiiiiiight.

- Place pan over medium heat, grease pan, then use an ice cream scoop to scoop the batter onto pan. Cook on each side for 2-3 minutes, until bubbles begin to show in the batter, then flip. The batter should created 12-14 five inch pancakes.
