Everyone's Doing It!


Really. Don't you want to be like Melinda? I do. That girl makes some killer meals.

Along with everyone else, we copied Melinda and made her delicious yogurt pancakes. For the pancakes, I used homemade yogurt from local raw milk, organic fair trade sugar, organic fair trade vanilla, locally milled flour, local organic pastured eggs, salt and baking soda. We topped it off with farmers' market strawberries, blueberries and blackberries - the latter leftover from my book club jam making fest (details to come) cooked down with a dash of non-local maple syrup.

Can you guess how happy my kids were to be served these for dinner?

Yummy! Can I come for breakfast?

Nothing beats breakfast for dinner! Especially when it's homemade from mostly local ingredients. Mmmmm. It's been awhile since I've had pancakes, and you served them the only way I eat 'em, with fruit on top! I like maple syrup in things, but don't like it as a pancake topping, but then again, I'm kind of a weirdo about my food.....

OK, I guess now I'll have to try them too! Imitation = flattery - even your berries were almost in the exact same places! Yes, I did click back and forth between the posts a few times :)

Melinda said...

Ha! I'm so glad you guys are making my recipe!! You know, it's the only totally original recipe I've ever posted, I think (every one of them I've adapted, but this one is unlike any other recipe). So it makes me very proud. : ) And flattered, too, Andrea!

Arduous: You just never get tired of seeing it though, do you? ;-)

Bobbi: Please do!

Jennifer: Don't you think breakfast for dinner is the ultimate indulgence. After giving myself freedom to do pretty much anything in my Equilibrium post, I felt so great that we had to eat pancakes for dinner.

Andrea: Come on! Everyone's doing it!! Go ahead, make some pancakes. You know you want to! :)

Melinda: You made that recipe up! Holy yogurt it's good. I can't wait to make it again. Keep those recipes coming.

GB - I made some of these last week, using vanilla yogurt, & topped them with homemade rhubarb jam - yummy. No wait, YUMMY!! I think I'll be making some more this weekend. The ones I put into the freezer are gone already - grandson really liked them, too.

Oh, geez. Now I went and licked the computer screen. Tasted like dust, sigh...

My kids love breakfast for dinner any night (or all of the nights!) a week. I think it's delicious, fast to prepare and usually for a family my size, a great way to prepare a healthy, local meal on a budget!

I smiled the entire time reading this. I don't know what you put in those pancakes but I feel like going out and hugging people on the street because life is so sweet and people so kind. Thank you Green Bean and Melinda!

Had them for breakfast this morning, thanks for sharing! I find them particularly wonderful since I don't keep milk in my kitchen, but always have yogurt. Way to make life easy for me :)
