this weeks menu
Swedish oatmeal pancakes (Serve with bacon of course, bananas are optional)
2 cups of oats
3/4 cup flour
1 teaspoon baking soda
1 teaspoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon salt
2 cups buttermilk
2 large eggs
1/4 cup melted butter
1 teaspoon vanilla
butter for skillet
Mix dry ingredients in one bowl, and the wet in another. Combine. Batter is going to be lumpy. The original recipe said to let it sit refrigerated for at least 2 hours. And over night is a- okay.
I think 30 minutes is enough and overnight produces mush. But, experiment if you will. Its part of the fun I think. We eat so many of these over here. It's my fault. I wake up craving them. My cravings are playing terrible tricks on me they are.
Anyhow, here is what I plan to make this week. I never really plan lunches. Or breakfasts for that matter. We eat pancakes for breakfast, and we love leftovers for lunch.
1. Roast chicken with rosemary-garlic paste
2. Beef stew
3. Olive oil poached salmon with Indian spices
4. Sausage, red onion, and mushroom pizza
5. Chicken and broccoli
6. Steak and baked potatoes
Any or all of these dishes could get tossed out the window, last night I served Peanut butter and jelly sandwiches for dinner. It was all my stomach could handle. So yeah.
