IHOP Has Nothing on Me

 


   Wednesday night, after a learning I had a UTI and feeling kind of out of it, I decided to treat myself to something rather indulgent.  Jeff was gone at his bowling league so it was just me at home.  I looked in the refrigerator and spied a large container of strawberries that I had hulled and cut up 2 days ago and it came to me...pancakes with fresh strawberries topping it instead of syrup.  I got busy and made the pancakes with my homemade mix, adding some oatmeal to the batter to make it a bit more nutritious.  I made a HUGE pancake (this was my dinner after all), topped with the strawberries and sprinkled them with a bit of sugar.  It needed something more...then it hit me...whipped cream!  Luckily for me, I had some in the refrigerator.  Well you know I may have gone a bit overboard with the whipped cream, but hey, a girl needs a treat to feel better when she is battling a very uncomfortable infection.  Am I right? 😉 

   I sat out on our back screened in porch watching the sun go down and listening as the birds all started to quite for the evening.  I savoured each and every delicious mouthful and was so thankful to God for providing such abundance when it came to our strawberry patch this year.  We have had so many ourselves and been able to share with friends and family too.  I have to admit, I think my dining experience here at home was much nicer than being in a noisy IHOP and the food tasted better too.

  2. Whipped cream is an essential food group. No such thing as having too much. Sounds like a wonderful dinner. SJ

    1. Thanks Cheryl, I'm a bit sore today, but that is my own fault for overdoing it yesterday and this morning. ;) I don't think I will ever learn...
