Tuesday was yet another snow day. Cold, boring, and as usual everyone was craving something. All of a sudden a light bulb shone at the top of my head. I said, "Why don't we make some pancakes for dinner?!" We were all ready for something to warm our cold bellies. At first they were just your ordinary pancakes. But as usual we had to put a twist to it and instead of drizzling chocolate on top of the pancakes, we decided to put the chocolate into the batter. Then for the extra zing, we added extra milk chocolate bits into the batter. And you can't have pancakes without syrup, but we couldn't go to the store, so we had to make our own. So the children and I made some banana caramel sauce.
Call me crazy, but I actually had mine with sour cream on top. It balanced the banana caramel sauce and the choco-pancake's sweetness.

Monday we had a snow day. My daughter was already on her well deserved winter break. She worked very hard and was exempt from all her exams. She is a senior this year. And I'm bragging now, but I'm very proud mom for she is a straight A, honor student with AP classes.
