Pancakes are good for the soul

This has been quite the week.

Sweet Venti is ten days post-OCD surgery. Kimber is one week post-puppy period (thank god). We’re making some changes at work. We put in an offer on a property. Oh, and Billy was struck by a driver running a red light.

Like I said, quite the week.

Shall I fill you in on that last bit? Billy was on his way to golf with friends, driving across an intersection in his Ford F250 when he was hit directly in the driver’s side door by an elderly woman who never even tapped her breaks as she blew through the red light.

His head hit the driver’s door window shattering the glass in a perfect billy head shaped hole while his elbow and shoulder slammed into the door. But somehow, miraculously, he is mostly unscathed. I credit his ability to walk away from the crash to his tank of a truck. It’s an absolute beast. If we weren’t already Forever Ford people, we certainly are now. If any less of a car had been hit like that he wouldn’t have been so lucky.

He’s getting some R&R this weekend and I’m happy to oblige with his favorite recipes. He only regularly requests three things; meatballs with baked ziti, peanut butter kiss cookies, and these pancakes from Grace & Good Eats. He woke up asking if it was pancakes and bacon day (duh) and I realized that she re-posted the recipe so I thought I’d share this unreal yumminess with you all! I won’t even attempt my own recipe, she wins y’all. They’re p.e.r.f.e.c.t.
