Unique Pancake Breakfast

1/4/15 Sunday in Wauchula,FL (Peace River Preserve-TT)

Believe it or not, the big reason we went to church last night was so we’d have plenty of time to make our big batch of pancakes. About every 6 weeks we make enough to freeze so most Sunday mornings we just microwave “fresh” homemade pancakes. Since Mass would have been at 8:30 am, we just didn’t want to get up real early to get our large batch made and still get to church. If you think eating popcorn with chili is strange, you should see how John likes his pancakes:


Yes, he makes a hard fried egg (kind of scrambled before cooking), adds chocolate chips, then places it on his pancake. When I saw how even the chocolate chips were I mentioned that I’d love to take a photo of it. So he obliged by taking off the top pancake of his pancake sandwich to let me take the picture. Thus some chocolate chips are not in perfect shape.

John mentioned going to the coast, since it was to be a really hot day. I agreed, then had to do all those dishes after our late breakfast. By then I figured it was too late to leave because it was getting close to lunch time. So I said I needed to do some computer work (blog included). After my computer work it was 11 pm so I suggested we take a walk before lunch. Well, this is when I realized I hadn’t understood John. He was now upset because it was too late to leave for the coast. Because it takes 1.5 hours to get there it wouldn’t pay to just go for the afternoon. He’d planned lunch over there. Ah. So sorry. So after our walk and lunch we watched Gonzaga play (they won!), then enjoyed the pool and the hot tub. Talk about a lazy life.

I tried a new recipe (off the Internet) to use our leftover ham: Pennsylvania Dutch Ham and Noodles. Yum!! Really easy and quick. Reminded us of macaroni and cheese with ham.


About Patricia Elser

I've always loved the loose, flowing, transparent look of watercolors, of Chinese paintings and their calligraphy, but alas, no watercolor classes were available when I was in school, so that interest remained buried until my children were grown. Even then, I was afraid that I couldn't really paint, so upon my sister's advice, I actually started to take classes. I signed up for every class available, determined to learn no matter how afraid I was. I came upon a teacher, Stan Miller, who inspired me, who opened the door to success in watercolor. I love to look at beautiful images. I want to capture them forever. All my life, photography was how I gathered images of the beauty I saw. Thanks to all that photography, I enjoy composing pictures, especially up close. Watercolors allow me to add more of me in their translation of that beauty. My paintings reflect my love for music and dance, with their rhythm and flow. I am fascinated by the play of light, so it appears in my pictures as drama for they are filled with darks and lights. Maybe it's the challenge, maybe it's the beauty, but now, when a work comes together, it fills my soul.
