My poor cone head. 🙁 Mal and I tried to make Murphy as comfortable as possible last night, but he whined in his crate for hours. We felt so bad for the little guy, we ended up getting out of bed around 5:15 this morning to cuddle and play with him. It was a super early Saturday for us!
Murphy was so miserable with the cone, we eventually took it off him. He’s much happier now. We just need to watch him like a hawk now to make sure he doesn’t lick/chew his stitches.
Breakfast was fun and different today! 😀
When I was in San Francisco a couple of weeks ago, I received a coupon for a free Batter Blaster. I love pancakes, so the idea of Batter Blaster seemed so cool to me. And, Batter Blaster advertises that it makes “organic light and fluffy pancakes,” which also sounded great to me!
Making the pancakes was a breeze– just coat a fry pan with cooking spray and “blast” the pancake batter onto it.
The batter made light, thin pancakes in just a few minutes.
The process of making pancakes was fast and easy, but the taste and texture was just so-so. The pancake flavor was decent, but it wasn’t the best I’ve ever had. I also wasn’t a fan of the soft, chewy texture of the pancakes– it made them really tough to cut. Even with a butter knife, I struggled to get a nice, clean cut. I sort of had to rip them apart to eat them. 😕
If you like thin, chewy pancakes, you’ll probably like the Batter Blaster variety. I, however, prefer the light, fluffy, cake-like pancakes that my husband makes! 😉
Breakfast also included pomegranate arils, agave nectar + maple syrup, and a maple sausage link on the side. It was a yummy breakfast, but it left me unsatisfied. I ended up eating a small bowl of Pomegranate Apple Crisp a little while later.
Mal, Murphy, and I are spending the rest of the morning relaxing. We have a movie on TV, a couple of iced coffees, and we’re still in our PJs. I’m also doing some sewing projects that I’ve been putting off for weeks– lots of loose buttons!
I love lazy Saturdays!
On the agenda for the day:
- Small grocery shopping
- Dinner with my sister and her new HUSBAND!
Happy Saturday, bloggies!
