Good Morning Readers!
Last night J and I had a great time at the Twins game! We are not baseball fans, but somehow going to a game to watch it live is different, you know what I mean? The ballpark is absolutely beautiful.
There you can see TC Bear our mascot!
The Twins won 4-0, and 3 of the runs happened in the first inning, so it wasn’t the most exciting game. However, the FOOD was the exciting part. Here is what we all shared:
The Vincent Burger: a beef patty with braised short ribs and smoked gouda stuffed in the center:
It was worth the $12 for only a few bites! Yes we paid $12 for a burger!
J had a steak and onion sandwich:
I’m still dreaming of the Vincent Burger. It was named the Minneapolis Best Gourmet Burger in 2007. How could I ever eat another burger after that? It will pale in comparison.
This morning we got up and I had one thing on my mind: pancakes. But I really didn’t want to bust into the Bisquick mix, I wanted to make my own. Here they are:
Place skillet on stove and turn burner onto medium heat. Use a ¼ cup measuring cup to measure batter for nice sized pancakes. I added a few walnuts to mine:
When edges start to brown, flip and cook about 1 minute on the other side. You know how you like your pancakes, so cook them that way! I like mine with a slightly doughy/mushy center, so I didn’t cook them completely. There aren’t any raw eggs in the batter so I wasn’t worried!
I topped mine with more sliced banana and a dribble of maple syrup. J thought they tasted chocolatey – even though there isn’t any chocolate in them.Plans: Workout: TurboFire Fire 55 EZ, Stretch 40 (didn’t get to this yesterday) Read The Lovely Bones Watch the local parade (and maybe visit the beer garden) Clean kitchen Relax Watch TV: anything good on today? –
