Must. Avoid. Going. To. Grocery. Store!!

Since I found out I was going to be stuck in D.C. for four days longer than expected, I’ve had a test of wills going on with myself to see if I could manage not going to the grocery store again before leaving. It’s been pretty intense. Case in point:

This morning, I ran out of bananas.

I know. DISASTER!!! How can I eat breakfast without a banana?!?!?!?!?

Okay, get a grip Anne, it will be okay. Let’s think seriously about this. 

Cereal? Wait, I’m out of cereal. And cereal is not much fun without a sliced banana.


Oatmeal!?! Definitely needs a banana.

Crap. Ummm… what else do people eat for breakfast?

Eggs? I only have egg whites in a carton. That’s boring.

Wait… Pancakes!! Yesssssss :) Good thing I still had some blueberries and a tiny bit of milk hanging around!


Mmmmmmmmmm delish :) I basically just threw what was left in my fridge into them. They came out very tasty! Hearty, but with a nice soft texture :)

PB & J Blueberry Pancakes

(makes one large or two small pancakes)


  • 1/3 C whole grain pancake mix
  • 1/3 C skim milk (or non-dairy substitute)
  • 2 T oats
  • 1 T liquid egg whites
  • 1 T unsweetened applesauce
  • 1 tsp ground flaxseed (optional)
  • 1/2 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1/4 tsp pumpkin pie spice (or cinnamon… I’m all out!)
  • blueberries

Told you it was random. ;)


Toss all the ingredients (except the blueberries) in a bowl and mix.

I used this pancake mix left over from the Blogger Secret Ingredient: Pancake Mix contest (which I actually won with my Secret Ingredient Falafel with Cucumber Yogurt Garlic Sauce recipe!)


Heat a nonstick pan (or use PAM) on medium heat and pour the batter into the pan. I just made one massive pancake :)

Once the batter is in the pan, sprinkle the blueberries on top. Heat a minute or two until you can flip it, then heat a minute or two on the other side.



Once it’s cooked, place on a plate and top with nut butter and jelly of choice :) I used Nuttzo and this awesome Strawberry Rhubarb jam from Williams Sonoma.


Yum :) I know what I’ll be making again tomorrow for breakfast!

What’s your favorite kind of pancake? I love anything with blueberries. Mmmm…

I’m off to get my hair cut in a bit! I was supposed to get it cut down in Tampa today, but obviously I am not there! I made a new appointment for here in the area… it’s so much more expensive here, but I REALLY need it cut!

Afterwards, I’m meeting up with a friend for a drink downtown. We’re also going to check out the White House decorations and the official Christmas Tree. :) Yay! Don’t worry, I’ll be sure to take some pics for my snow blog ;)


Orlando girlies: so sad to miss you tonight!!! Have fun at Infusion Tea… get lots of tasty things in my honor :)

    A pancake with blueberries and chocolate chips in one is heaven. And with nuttzo–omg would that be good.
