Thankful Thursday Pancakes

Well, here it is, Thursday, and I’m not at the middle school as usual. Some of our children are still sleeping, when usually they would have been up for two hours already, getting ready for school. Yep; we are enjoying a relaxing snow day here today.

If I accomplish a lot on this day off, I might do a Thursday 13 post later. First off, though, I thought of a Thankful Thursday

As I was checking my email this morning, and enjoying the first cup of coffee for the day, I overheard some interesting conversations from the kitchen. Our youngest son, 12 years old, was asking his older sister for some cooking pointers. He decided he would make Honey Buckwheat Pancakes (from a mix) for those of us who were up.

At first he worried that he wouldn’t do everything ‘just right,’ such as flipping the flapjacks properly, but the finished product was very edible. We enjoyed the pancakes with butter and molasses. Yum!

I am thankful for:

  1. The love of a son, which prompted him to step outside his comfort zone and serve his family.
  2. A kiddo learning to do something on his own that I should have taught him earlier. Hey, Mom, boys need to know how to cook, too!

What was funny was our son’s comment afterwards that he has now increased his breakfast-making repertoire to four things:

  1. Pancakes
  2. Any style of egg
  3. Toast!!! (He was serious. :P)
  4. ‘I pour a mean bowl of cereal!’

Happy Thankful Thursday to you!
