Ever have a day when you know everything will go wrong? Today was one of those days.
Before I moved to PA, I was pretty involved in my church. Since coming here, I've been trying to find a new church to call home, but with little success. This morning I decided to try a near-by church. I'll spare you the details and just say that it wasn't at all what I was expecting. To add to my disappointment, I nearly passed out three quarters of the way through service and had to leave.
I walked home knowing that I had to eat something as soon as I got into my apartment. Luckily, I had some pumpkin pancake mix from Trader Joe's in my cupboard. I've made them from scratch before, but they take twice as long as a mix.
Fluffy with a touch of cinnamon and just enough pumpkin flavor. After slathering on the syrup and I was feeling better in no time!
2 shredded russet potatoes and half a small onion shredded. Combine with an egg and salt and pepper and prepare to fry.
Crisp, crackly brown exterior and a creamy interior with just a hint of onion flavor. Mmmm...
I bought some apples at the farmer's market this week and decided to whip up a quick improvised apple sauce with some cider I had in the fridge. The cider reduction added a more intense apple flavor and sweetened the sauce without adding sugar!
I like my potato pancakes with apple sauce...
...and sour cream.
