Sorry to report that I am not flying very high today. But the week-end went fairly well, I had lots of visitors and that kept me really busy. It had been a long time since I’d seen my house so crowded and that felt pretty nice.
I spent my time cooking, for the most part, and I had a bunch of people to cook for, for a change! Boy did that feel good! I don’t know about you, but cooking is very therapeutic for me. So I guess we could say that I’ve had a very therapeutic week-end, sort of…
My “therapy” started a little before company arrived, on Saturday morning, with the execution of this pretty elaborate pancake recipe, which I had envisioned a few days after making this gorgeous instant buckwheat bake. I’d been dreaming about them since and couldn’t wait to finally put them to the test.
I have to say they came out better than anticipated. Wow were they good! The pancakes themselves had a very decadent, rather intense chocolate taste and they got really poofy, light and moist.
I’m telling you, now matter how sad I was feeling that morning, what a moment of bliss eating those pancakes has been! Sitting there quietly at my dining room table, slowly savoring every bite, trying to think of nothing else but this delicious meal that I was eating. Comfort food at its best is what it was!
And comfort food that also happens to be good for me?
I can’t say no to that!
Mile high pile!
So unbelievably moist!
