I adore spewing out common phrases in random social settings, especially ones that don’t make sense at all. I mean, who’s George? and what exactly does he have?
Some of my other favorite senseless idioms include
- the bee’s knees: since when do bees have knees? and if so, what’s so great about them?
- a piece of cake: last time I checked, cutting a piece of cake is actually pretty difficult. Ironic?
- son of a gun: who knew that guns can reproduce?
What was my intent of this post again?
Oh, right, my newest discovery.
Dear George (whoever the hell you are), I think I’ve got the recipe for the perfect whole wheat pancakes.
Fluffy. Moist. Swoon.
- 1/3 cup whole wheat flour
- 2 tbsp wheat germ
- 1/2 tsp baking powder
- 1-2 tbsp greek yogurt (I use vanilla to add a little sweetness)
- 1/4 cup milk (I use vanilla almond breeze)
- 1 egg + 2 tbsp egg whites (I only add the extra egg whites if the batter ends up being too thick)
- sweetener to taste (cinnamon, stevia, sugar, brown sugar)
I added some cranberries to the batter then sauteed another handful with a bit of maple syrup. Topped with naturally more peanut butter

p.s. acronyms are completely useless when you have to write out what they mean. Fail.
I’m only working two days this week so I definitely intend on spending the other 5 trying out new toppings for these fabulous flapjacks.

- Favorite kind of pancake and toppers? I’m a simple gal – blueberry pancakes with maple syrup never dissapoints.
Here’s to a fabulous week! Happy Monday, y’all
