It’s a great day when you not only get a delicious and nutritious recipe, but a hilarious back story to go along with it. It’s pumpkin season, and these gluten free and vegan pumpkin pancakes are packed full of flavor without any unhealthy additives! The story is one that all families can relate to…. maybe over a plate of pumpkin pancakes?
Do you love pancakes as much as I do?
It was a typical Saturday morning in the Bertone house. I’m in the kitchen and the boys are scattered doing… whatever it is they do.
“I’m taking pictures of the pancakes – no one touches them until I’m done.”
Hubby instantly appears and grabs the most perfect “top worthy” pancake.
“Put that down! Here… eat the ugly one.”
“I’m not worthy of the pretty pancake?”
Hubby grabs the ugly pancake and disappears.
I start taking pictures and Stepson makes his kitchen appearance.
“Can you make chocolate chip pancakes?”
“Nope. These are the ones I made today.”
“But chocolate chip pancakes are my favorite.”
… (and the butter is now melting as I’m distracted trying to talk to him)…
“I hate pumpkin. The only pancakes I like are chocolate chip and they have to be full of sugar.”
… (how are you my non-biological son seriously?) …
“Are they gluten free?”
“I hate gluten free.”
“You are a teenager. You hate everything. Try one bite. Trust me.”
…. one bite and a big eye roll later..
“Can I have three?”
… (I place three on his plate)…
“Where’s the maple syrup?”
… (I look at him, look at his plate, and look at the maple syrup about 2 inches away from his plate.) …
“It’s organic maple syrup. I hate organic.”
Can I have some solidarity? Does this happen at your house too?
Hubby appears in the kitchen again. He picks up one pancake and then puts it down. He picks up another one – same thing. The third he takes.
“Where’s the maple syrup?”
… (How come you people aren’t this interested in my business when I’m doing laundry?)…
Seriously… can you relate?
