i am extremely bad at flipping and frying things. i was never able make eggs and my chicken fried tofu steaks always end up in a strange jumbled form.
so maybe it was the lack of sleep because i was out late last night. or maybe i just deluded myself into thinking it would be easy. for whatever reason, i decided to make strawberry pancakes this morning.
yes, i know. quite sad.
HOWEVER they were the best pancakes i've ever tasted. there is something nice about eating something extremely ugly that tastes really good. i will admit though that i get a little angry looking at the drool-worthy picture of "Fluffy Pancakes" from the vegan outreach booklet the recipe came from.
my little brother, who almost always magically "doesn't like" whatever things i make (ex. "andrew i'm going to make peanut butter cookies. want some?" "umm i don't like peanut butter." "what about chocolate chip?" "i don't like chocolate." "what about banana bread?" "i don't like those kinds of breads" etc) kept going back for more.
