Whine: On my way back from vay-cay my curling iron broke. In two. Not fixable. I loved that curling iron. Every now and then I have a deviant section of hair that doesn't curl with the others and I counted on that iron to curl it back into place. Until iron is replaced my hair is just straightening amuck.
Wish: I used the food processor today and now it's sitting in my sink waiting to be washed. I wish I didn't have to wash it because last time I did that I nearly sliced my finger off.
Woo-hoo! Dinner tonight was awesome. Totally worth using the food processor and risking a life of nine fingers. Are you ready for it? Banana pancakes with berry sauce. I got the recipe out of Parenting magazine. And woo-hoo! for you- I'm sharing the recipe (which, if you eat like my family, really needs to be doubled):
Puree 2 cups fresh or thawed mixed berries with 1/4 cup sugar; set aside. Whisk together 1 mashed ripe banana, 1 cup milk, 1 Tbsp melted butter, and 1 large egg until smooth, Stir in 1 cup whole-wheat pancake mix until moistened. Drop silver-dollar spoonfuls of batter onto a preheated lightly buttered griddle. Cook 2 to 3 minutes per side. Drizzle berry sauce on top.
Heaven. It'll make you want to dance:
