Firstly, thank you all for your lovely and supportive comments on my last post! My power is back on and I’m back in the kitchen and appreciating and loving every single minute of it.
Now let’s talk about elections. I’m totally not political. I found this on Pinterest and it completely describes my feelings about today:
So. I didn’t vote, but I did make pancakes. Not just any pancakes, but healthy pancakes. With pumpkin and all kinds of awesome spices and things. Oh and there’s oatmeal in them, so they have negative calories, I think. Or something like that. So regardless of who wins the election, and whether you’re happy about the result or not, you can totally be happy when you make these pancakes. And happier when you finish eating them, because you did something good and healthy for yourself.
