I've slept in the past two mornings, just because I could, and by the time I got out of bed this morning it was approaching 10:30 am -- the perfect time for brunch. As I have a big box of blueberries in my freezer, I decided on blueberry pancakes.
I mixed up a simple oatmeal-based pancake batter and added blueberries:
- 0.5 cup oats (blended into oat flour)
- 0.5 tsp baking powder
- 1 egg
- 0.25 cup milk
- 0.5 cup blueberries
For cooking pancakes, I usually use my little George Foreman grill. It's super easy -- they're done in 2 minutes and never stick (no oil required!). I set up the grill in the same way as I do to fry eggs, propping up the front two legs with the overturned drip tray to create a flat grilling surface.

|2 minutes later -- done!|
My pancake brunch was followed by the usual weekend tidying and laundry. For dinner I've fried up an eggplant and zucchini that had been sitting in my fridge for too long (three weeks, oops).

In the interest of further procrastination, when I finish this post I'll walk (briskly! it's -18 °C) down to the store to buy eggs and when I get back will finally settle down with tea and the USMLE QBank. Now that it's February the pressure is on to get through as many questions as possible before my subscription expires!
