National Blueberry Pancake Day

“He who goes to bed hungry dreams of pancakes.” - Proverb

It's National Blueberry Pancake Day!

When I was eighteen, my then boyfriend used to make me chocolate chip pancakes every time I would go over to his house.  It became "our thing."  His parents frequently walked in on us stuffing our little faces on too many pancakes absolutely drowning in maple syrup.

It was the first time a non-related-to-me human being had ever made me pancakes, and I fell a little in love with the idea of it. It just seemed so charming, and even a little sexy, to me: some attractive boy in a pair of well-fitting jeans leaning relaxed against a stove chatting with me, while in one hand he effortlessly flips pancakes with a spatula and sips from time-to-time on a cup of joe he's holding in his other hand.

It seems like the cover to a book about food porn, no?

Happy National Blueberry Pancake Day!
