I just felt like drawing out the y's because it's that kind of day, you know, crazy-slack, bordering on comatose. Aside from a few errands and cooking, I spent my morning (and afternoon) eating great food, sipping mimosas and watching Dollhouse (so good!). Even lifting up my laptop to write this is a bit of a hurdle, possibly because every muscle in my body aches from bowling - yes, I'm that out of shape. You are permitted to laugh at my expense. After some mandatory, can't-put-it-off-any-longer work to do this afternoon, I intend to perpetuate my slackness to the maximum. Which basically just means more Dollhouse.
(Did y'all know that Joss Whedon is working on a new show?)
This morning's breakfast was diner-style, and nothing even remotely experimental (like last week's merge of french toast and fried egg sandwiches). And it was also brainlessly easy.
I always go to Isa's recipe for perfect pancakes (Vegan Brunch, or Vegan with a Vengeance) - I like to modify it by using a full tablespoon of baking powder instead of two teaspoons. It makes 'em a little more fluffy and they just end up looking gorgeous every time.
Along with pancakes, there were roasted taters - nothing fancy, just straight-up mildly seasoned potatoes for ketchup dunking. Mike threw on some mozza daiya once they were done cooking and let it melt in the oven for a few minutes for added yum.
And of course, can you have pancakes without breakfast sausages? The answer is yes, but they won't be quite as awesome. I grew up on breakfast sausages, and they were one of the few meats I really enjoyed back in the day. So once in a while I love to pick up a pack of Yves brand - they taste just like I remember!
Since last night didn't see any crazy hootenanny (the evening was a marathon Dollhouse session), both of us were up for something a little more perky than fresh juice in the morning. And so, mimosas were born. We've made mimosas before, and it is one of my favorite ways to use my juicer. I adore fresh citrus juice, and adding some sparkly to it just takes it over the edge! We went for more of a 50/50 ratio between fresh orange juice and grapefruit juice - two large grapefruit and four small oranges made enough for four glasses worth. So freaking tasty.
So the other day I was being all cryptic with the life changes and whatnot, and I wanted to mention that I haven't forgotten that I brought it up. In fact, I'll talk to you about it in the next post. All good things (mostly), I promise. :) Hope you've been having a great weekend!
