I know some people think it’s a crime to eat breakfast for dinner, but not in our house! Especially when you have a somewhat picky 3 year old that would eat pancakes for every meal if we let him. Some days I just don’t plan ahead what we are going to have for dinner (OK, a lot of days) and so I get off work and pick up the phone to call my husband and ask the sometimes dreaded question: “So, what should we have for dinner?”, to which I usually get, “I don’t care, whatever you want”. Luckily, today I actually didn’t have to make an executive decision! It was like music to my ears when I heard, “Avery wants to make pancakes”. Oh goody gumdrops…something EASY! Because let’s face it, it’s Monday, my sweatpants are calling my name and I kind of feel like this:
My dream of not cooking today didn’t 100% come true, but Avery insisted on helping make the batter, and the hubby was the pancake flipper.
