Making Banana Pancakes, Pretending It's the Weekend...


Oh yes. Today is a *sigh* kind of day. Or week, rather.

My oldest DD has had a scratchy sore throat for days. We're still waiting to get the test results to see if it's strep.

And then last night, about midnight, my youngest started throwing up and hasn't stopped since.

So, today, we decided to play hookie from homeschool and instead we made banana pancakes and are watching tv, pretending it's the weekend.

Enjoy! (and if you wouldn't mind, please say a little prayer for our family)

Angela's Reduced-Sugar Syrup
Yields: 1
*sub - 1T raw coconut nectar for maple syrup
*Note: It helps to warm up the coconut nectar & oil before trying to mix them together since they separate easily.


And now... let Jack entertain you while you pretend it's the weekend!
