I dealt with my cravings first. Cue the lemon pancakes:
I used my favorite pancake mix.
I followed the package directions with these substitutions:
- I only added 1/3 of a cup of water (instead of 1/2 cup).
- I also added the juice and zest of one lemon.
The pancakes turned out great.
One looked like a fish -
These ended up being even more perfect with a poached egg on top.

Then I doused everything with syrup because the world is always a better place with the addition of maple syrup.
To fulfill the dogs cravings, I made my green mix.
|1 Tbsp. of Kyo-Green, 2 Tbsp. of yogurt and 1 Tbsp. of Udo's oil.|
The dogs go nutty over this mix. Both dogs get excited when they see me reach for the Kyo-green bottle. I know, it is the oddest thing.
Connor did steal a lick while I was taking pictures.
Did you notice the new plate?
The plate isn't really new. This plate was considered the 'children's' plate when I was little. I have vivid memories of eating holiday dinners and watching the picture at the bottom of the plate be revealed bit by bit and bite by bite.
When my mom passed, I asked for some of these plates.
This is the first time I have taken them out. I hope you like them :-)
