On second thought...

What do you do when you want to cuddle after work, but your husband isn't home? Then your dog is too hyper to refrain from turning an attempted cuddle session into a full on face smothering?

In my case, I get online and check my email hoping to get anything about adoption. Then I check my facebook messages, then I check my blogs. Then I ALWAYS get hungry because I check my favorite food blogs.

Have you ever read the food blog, Yes, I want cake?

Katie, the author of the blog, is the wife of one of my highschool friends. I found her blog while bored at work at the hotel one day a year or two ago. Ever since, I have tried making about 10 of her recipes and messed up about 80 percent of them. Why? 1- I dont measure... and 2- I don't have the healthy ingredients she has.

But, one day she posted THIS apple salsa black beany chicken meal that made my salivary glands blow up.

I made it the next day for dinner and Lucas and I were grunting at each other with joy. Basically, we sounded like Tim Taylor from Home Improvement as we ate. I highly recommend turning into a cave man as you eat it. (You won't be able to help it)

However, today I can't stop thinking about a pizza she recently blogged about.

But just now, on my way to close the computer and go make the pizza I noticed some pancakes she blogged about today. They caught my eye because of the OATS. I love oats and oatmeal bars and oatmeal cookies and oatmeal everything. She doesn't use oats too terribly often, but when she does I get really happy.

I'm pretty set on making both of them in the next five seconds.

I may have to borrow my in-law's kitchen tonight because...... mmmmmmmmmmm. Yum.

It's funny that you posted that pancake recipe. It's basically the exact same as the oat pancakes I grew up making that are ridiculously delicious. Come visit me and you can eat them with me for at least two meals a day. That's what I do each time I make them. :)
