I was up early to pick up our produce from the Bountiful Basket co-op at 6:00 a.m. After I got back home I headed out for a long walk. I walked the canal again this morning, but changed my route to and from the canal in order to increase my mileage. I ended up walking for 90 minutes and covering almost 4.5 miles.
While I was walking I was thinking about making a big fruit salad for us to munch on over the weekend from the fruit that we didn’t eat up from last weeks produce basket.
When I got home, Mike had put away this week’s produce and had just thrown most of last week’s leftover fruit in the trash. WHAT!!!
I rescued most of the fruit washed it up and got chopping and conned Mike into making pancakes for breakfast. We still had a bunch of strawberries, some grapes, cherries, a cantaloupe, a mango and some nectarines left from last week.
It turned into this beautiful salad that we could munch on all weekend.
I skipped syrup on my pancakes and ate them with the fruit instead. I didn’t even miss the syrup.
A few years ago we used to make a version of these pancakes that came from a recipe on the Bisquick box called Melt in Your Mouth Pancakes. Somehow we lost the recipe and couldn’t find the same one on the internet and it was no longer on the box. Mike made several different kinds of pancakes until we finally hit on this one (recipe below).
Last weekend I had vetoed pancakes because I was sure they would be too many points; and I wouldn’t be able to stop eating them when I should. But, this morning I decided that pancakes too must be able to fit into my plan, so I asked Mike to make them. Then I went to put them into e-tools; we counted how many pancakes the recipe makes and I was so happy to find out they were only 1 point each!
I love when that happens!
