I've been thinking of you, just haven't had time/ made time to sit down and type.
Today I made this puffy oven pancake recipe for lunch. I have been struggling with lunches recently in particular because now that it is chilly, I want something hot for lunch. And also, there's the whole wheat conundrum about which I still haven't come to a conclusion. Oh, and I ran out of yeast! You read that correctly. For awhile, I was out of yeast so I could not make bread. Wow, was THAT a bummer! I still haven't made bread, actually, despite having acquired yeast.
Today we had no bread and no leftovers. We had already had oatmeal for breakfast, and I made the kids eggs yesterday for lunch. I also didn't want to stuff them full of sugar!
This recipe was really simple, didn't have any sugar aside from what was in the asian pear that I used, had eggs and cheese in it that would provide some protein to keep those little tummies full, and it was warm, so it made my cold self happy.
I enjoyed it. The kids, for the most part, enjoyed it too, in their own ways-- Ellie, eating each part separately; Sam, rolling his up like a taco; and Ben ate his begrudgingly, despite not liking asian pear and also voiced some dislike of the cheese with this recipe.
Anyway, if you are looking for a quick, nourishing, low/ no sugar option for lunch that doesn't involve bread, try this recipe! It's also a good breakfast. It came together quickly-- I made the batter before the oven was even finished preheating, and the pears were quick to cut up and about 3 min in the pan.
Have a great day!
