Did you ever take an exam but avoid looking at the grade for a little bit???
I do…all the time. I usually study my bum off, but it still makes me nervous to see the end result.
Today I finally built up enough courage to look at the exam score (ok, my mom was on the phone with me for moral support, thanks mom!).
I KICKED BUTT!!!! 🙂
I got this charm from the farmer’s market the Saturday before the exam. It helps remind me that I shouldn’t stress myself out so much because I wouldn’t be here if this stuff didn’t make me happy. If it’s not making you happy then why the hell are you doing it?
The other morning I made the most wonderful pancakes. I always surf my favorite healthy living blogs and try to combine and alter recipes to make them fit my ingredients or tastes. Here’s what I came up with:
PB Swirl L’Oats of Oats Pannycakes
1 cup of old fashioned oats
1/2 whole wheat or spelt flour
1 cup plain yogurt
1 tbsp honey
4 tbsp brown sugar (I like the warm sweetness it adds)
2 tbsp canola oil
2 tsp cinnamon
2 tsp vanilla extract
1 tsp baking powder
1/4 cup all natural creamy peanut butter
your favorite granola
Mix all ingredients together except for the peanut butter and granola. Heat up a non stick skillet. Use a 1/4 measuring cup to measure out pancakes.
Put peanut butter in a plastic ziploc bag and snip one corner. Swirl peanut butter onto the uncooked side of the pancake and sprinkle your favorite granola.
Flip pancake with your favorite BIG spatula
I poured a little honey on top and they were amazing. You can only eat about two because they are so filling but I love them! They’re great for leftovers.
