myFresha-licious: Pancakes


My youngest nephew often makes unintelligible remarks when he wants something.  We often end up enumerating everything that comes to mind to guess what he is trying to say.  When he thinks we can’t figure out what he’s saying his whimpering escalates to wild crying.  He’s just 1 year and 9 months and his words are limited to ball, there, come, eat, here, yes, and a few others. My niece or my other nephew often times do the deciphering.

A while ago he wanted bread.  He actually asked me using his alien language that’s why I didn’t understand.  Perplexed I asked my niece what the little boy wants and she quipped “bread” without looking at me since she’s busy with her bookworm game on the computer.  I can’t find any bread so I decided to make pancakes again.

The kids are always excited every time I make pancakes.  And this is the recipe I often use when I make them.  They love it with pancake syrup.  

By the way, Mammyand my Sibling #2 went to Liwan to attend the wake of our Lolo Satur(my mammy’s mother’s brother)  He died of old age at more than 95 Ibelieve.  So I’m left to tend the the three little rascals. And so I ended up giving in to their every whim just to pacify them, and to make things peaceful in the house.
