A few weeks ago my boyfriend and I cooked the most beautiful breakfast (blueberry pancakes with ranch eggs) and ate it out on my front porch. It was super scenic and vogue; check it out:
It made me really happy to see such pretty food, so when breakfast time came around yesterday I wanted to make another awesome meal. I picked a recipe off my pancakes board on Pinterest (Japanese Hot Cakes). We halved the recipe since last time we had too many leftover pancakes!
See how I strategically put the burnt one in the middle? XD
Yesterday's photogenic breakfast:
Quick Fundamental Rules of Cooking:
Rule #1: When cooking pancakes cook for a long time on a low temp.
Rule #2: When baking anything, even if the pan is nonstick, grease it anyway!
After breakfast we decided to go peruse the square. We started off at a place called PG comics.
It's a tiny little basement store located beneath an electronic cigarette bar. The owners told us they've been open for more than a year, but we never heard of it until a couple months ago!! Basement and second story stores have it rough. While there I ordered a POP Eleventh Doctor Who figurine. The owner promised it will come in next week, right before I leave (spontaneous purchase, whaaah)!
Then we went to the local Dilly Bean. It's a very interesting store and when you get out you smell strongly of incense, even if you didn't walk by that part of the store!
Darth Vader and Son is the cutest book in the history of books. We read the entire thing!
When I got back to my house my mother made some really yummy salad for lunch :)
About halfway through the afternoon my mom asked me to help her make barbecue sauce to put on the corn and shrimp we were grilling for dinner. A lot of spicy ingredients went into it and it burned the inside of my nose when I sniffed it! (always use the wafting technique they teach you in chemistry class)
Buzz was very curious about the smell coming from the stove.
Then it was grilling time!
We only put the barbecue sauce on half the corn because my dad doesn't like spicy food.
Then we grilled the shrimp and mixed up some chopped cucumbers and tomatoes with some Italian dressing and had an awesome dinner.
Home cooked food is always the best! :)
