Well, hello Thursday… how you doin’?
What a busy week it has been! As we head into spring and summer months, it seems the days are jam packed with activity, especially outdoor activity. I know it’s picked up for us and we just love it! With a busy weekend last weekend, I whipped up a delicious breakfast of griddle cakes using a standard pancake recipe and some leftovers. Boy was it good!
This past weekend, we did something we had not done in a couple of years. We went to the Hogle Zoo here in Salt Lake City. My nephew wanted to take his grandma (my step mom) to see the animals so a bunch of us family met up there. We had some pretty crappy weather the last several days but Sunday was perfect. Not too hot, not too cold. No jacket required.
The best part is the animals were in the mood to pose for pictures. I was so glad I drug the big camera with me because I wanted to play a bit with the settings and see what animals would be ready for their close-up. Turns out Mr. Lion was all over it. There are two males there born from the same litter, Vulcan and Baron. I don’t know which one this was but he was beautiful!
This bald eagle is a rescue the zoo has and the poor thing had flown into power lines and lost a wing! It didn’t stop her from looking as majestic as she is.
And this grizzly bear…. Oh my, he was having a good time playing in the water and running all over. There were two others there as well and they’re all siblings. This one was enjoying the beautiful weather.
I made breakfast for hubby and I before we headed out but I was in no mood for eggs. I’m not sure if you get that way at times, but bacon and eggs just weren’t doing it for me that morning. And pancakes with syrup wasn’t either. I looked in the fridge and saw a bunch of leftovers from the previous two nights and decided to make a modified pancake. I took a recipe I’ve used, which is nothing but flour, baking powder, egg and milk. Then, it was time to add some leftovers and it turned out to be a pretty delicious breakfast. Hubby added syrup to his, but with just a bit of butter, I thought it was perfect.
