My face is still numb from my filling at 11AM this morning. :(
After choking and cheek-biting my way through lunch, I decided to have pancakes for dinner.
Of course, I used Bisquick. Who doesn't? This post isn't so much about the pancakes, but what I used on top.
Really, I've just been waiting for an excuse to make pancakes, ever since I splurged on this:
Yes. REAL maple syrup. And not only is it real (which tastes completely different from fake), but it was made right in Cobleskill by someone I work with. Double awesome.
So I stirred up my Bisquick, adding some cinnamon because it's yummy. (For the record, I used Byrne Dairy milk and Cottonhill farm eggs, as well as some flax from the co op, so there's some local in there.)
Then I fried about the best darn batch of pancakes I think I ever made. I'm getting a hang of this cooking thing.
I highly recommend real maple syrup, and while you're at it, you might as well get it from the Hay family. Their bottle says "The World's Best," and I think they might be right...
** Look for them to be selling syrup again around March. I also hear there's tours...
