I don’t have any idea how it happened, but I finally got on a decent sleep schedule this week, and after a few days of going into work early, I popped out of bed early this morning.
(It probably doesn’t hurt that I was dreaming about making pancakes.)
I hung out with my father, brother, and one of their friends before they took off, and since I was up, I decided to make my pancake dream come true with a nice breakfast for my mother.
For a fruitier version, I minced apricots and mixed them in the pancake batter, and instead of maple syrup, I made homemade pineapple-orange, which was really quite delicious.
Oh, and bacon. Lots and lots of bacon.
