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.


  1. I was going to ask you for this, thanks :)

  2. pb&j has been my pregnancy staple. Bran usually works through dinner and em will eat anything so it works out well :)

  3. haha, cold cereal has definitely been a dinner staple for me. Poor Paul! Those pancakes look awesome, though. Tonight we're going to try some baked potatoes. I am hoping that they're bland enough to work for today. today hasn't been my best day so far :(
