Clean-ish Pancakes?

This week we have found ourselves in a position of having plenty of food in the house but not enough to make a meal.  Do you know what I mean?  You know, we have peanut butter and jelly but no bread, pasta but no sauce, everything to make tacos but no shells....and the list goes on!  Tonight I decided to try some pancakes, eggs and turkey bacon.  We had dinner late but we still ate and nobody had to make an emergency trip to the grocery store!

I don't know how clean these pancakes actually are but they are 100% homemade, I even made "buttermilk" for the first time!  There were no complaints!  And I had to have my favorite omelet with mushrooms, peppers and mozzarella cheese, yuuuummmm!!  

I had to double our recipe since we are feeding several but we still had a few leftovers.  
The recipe used was:
  • 3/4 cup milk
  • 2 tbsp white vinegar
  • 1/2 cup white flour
  • 1/2 cup wheat flour
  • 2 tbsp stevia
  • 1 scoop vanilla protein powder
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • 1/2 tsp baking soda
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1 egg
  • 2 tbsp melted butter

  1. Combine milk with vinegar in a medium bowl and set aside for 5 minutes to sour
  2. Combine dry ingredients in a large mixing bowl.  Whisk egg and butter into "soured" milk.  Pour the flour mix into the wet ingredients and whisk until lumps are gone.
  3. Head on skillet coated with cooking spray

Family Pictures

"There were photographs I wanted to take...."

We got our first family pictures since welcoming our 5th baby girl to our family last week.  Quite noticeably, there are only 4 girls in the picture.  I cannot even begin to put into words the ache I feel every time I see a new picture of us and Olivia is not there.  I can just picture having our little 3 year old with big blue eyes right in between Greg and my legs.....
