If you ask me on a Thursday afternoon what the upcoming weekend will look like, I’d probably mention a date night (or two), a few long runs, brunch with BL, and hopefully a few activities with friends.
By Saturday morning, most of those plans have gone out the window. Errands pile up, the house is a mess, and BL and I both get stuck in front of our computers well into the afternoon. Most of us can relate to the “not enough time during the week” scenario, when work and responsibility spill over into the weekend.
A few weekends ago, I made a point to get everything we needed to get done out of the way on Saturday so we could relax and take it easy on Sunday. I know it sounds a little silly but I cherish afternoons when ‘nothing’ is on the docket: time to catch an impromptu movie, ride our bikes, go for a walk, or just lay on the couch and talk.
The first order of business? These pancakes. Heartier than a buttermilk pancake, these stacked up perfectly with homemade blueberry sauce.
The other beauty of this brunch? It took just 20 minutes to prepare. Just enough time for BL to wipe down the outside furniture, make the coffee and pop a bottle of champagne. Whether you are making these on a weekday or weekend morning, enjoy and savor!
Keep the extra sauce and use to sweeten oatmeal or toast, will keep for 2 weeks in the fridge.
