7 Recipes To Try This Weekend

by Amy

Owl Creek Farm Sunday Morning PancakesIf you’re like me, you often leave meal planning a little too close to last minute and end up making something that’s quick instead of what you wanted. There were times in my past lives where I would sit down – with both time and quiet on my side – to write out elaborate meal plans and coordinating shopping lists. One main list for the once a month trip to the city – people think we are rural now….. It was 2.5 hours to any shopping apart from a tiny, extremely high cost, grocery store. And then weekly lists for trips to that tiny store for perishables. Color coordinated and everything. I had more time, but life is better now, so less organized is ok, you know?

I almost lost track of where I was going with that. Getting back on track, you might be like me and not have the time to really plan, but it’s usually pretty easy to at least make sure you’ve got the ingredients for a few different options. Often us busy folks will draw blanks when we need ideas the most. Irony. So, here’s some suggestions to make this weekend. Just print out the recipes, check off what ingredients you have, and run to the store for any missing items. Even if you don’t make any of these, maybe it’ll jog an idea in your brain and make at least one meal better, and that’s not a bad goal either.

Breakfast Recipes

If I ran my own restaurant, these would be what we’d make for our All Day, All You Can Eat Pancakes.

Since I do not, here’s the recipe for you to enjoy them for way cheaper, and without having to get dressed.

Sunday Morning Pancakes
Easy enough for everyday, delicious enough for Sunday breakfast. If you want to make any of the flavoured pancakes, read over their ingredients and instructions before beginning! Can be halved or doubled.
