It Was A Good Day...

I woke up this morning and crept into my son's room, singing happy birthday. Down to the kitchen I went to prepare him some birthday pancakes. Or shall I say mouthwatering birthday pancakes from scratch. Yummy. My boy came down to a pile of pancakes with a candle on top. Birthday wishes were made as his candle was blown out. So sweet.
Here is the recipe to those yummy tantalizing pancakes:
Mouthwatering Golden Pancakes
· Milk (I prefer evaporated milk or cream for thicker pancakes and more flavor) (3/4 cup)
· Flour (1 cup)
· Baking powder (1 teaspoon)
· Salt (1/2 teaspoon)
· Eggs (1 egg whisked)
·Melted Butter (2 Tablespoons)
· Sugar (1 Tablespoon)
-vanilla (1/2 teaspoon)
Mix together dry ingredients then add wet ingredient. Mix together.
 Do not over mix. if batter is too thick add a little extra milk until you get desired consistency.
Now pour onto a heated griddle. Serve topped with butter and your fave syrup.

After breakfast we took him to the movies. We saw The Avengers.
Then we went to our favorite birthday place. Red Robin...
We had burgers and rootbeer floats. Oh yeah.
We also enjoyed cookies. Since he is not really a cake kind of guy...
So a stack of chocolate chip cookies topped with a candle of course.
It was a good day for our birthday boy.
