Oh yes, we did.   We DID indeed buy the silly pancake puff pan.  Not only did we buy it, but as cheapskate parents, we bought it for the child who was absolutely OBSESSED with the idea of pancake puffs.  Happy Birthday Rebecca.

It’s not as easy as the infomercial makes it seem – go figure.  But there are tips and tricks all over the internet and I think I got it figured out!

Now, the normal me would have made these with a whole wheat, multi-grain, from scratch recipe with turkey sausage.  Tired Me, (the new me) TOTALLY used a mix and the yummy bacon sausage.  Tired Me, being from THIS family, was completely convinced I must be pregnant, but alas, no.  Not yet anyway.  So, apparently I was just being lazy.  Or maybe not as I had to go back into the store to buy the mix.  But sometimes you just want easy!

You know the sick and wrong thing about all of this?  Go out and milk the goat, strain the milk, pour the milk into the batter.  The kids?  Not entertained.  Go out and feed the chickens, you can gather the eggs, you can use those very fresh eggs and are the kids amazed?  Nope.  Pour non-chemical wheat berries into your mill and “magically” make flour for the mix…  The kids?  Totally unfascinated by the process.

BUT, add water to a box mix and they are flabbergasted!   The kids, “WOW!  You can make pancakes just by adding water??  That is SO cool!  WOW!”

Um, yeah.  No justice.
