us vs. hunger: day 1

Posted by ernie on February 20, 2008


well this is it. the first of many. i guess i should explain. it’s chocolate chip pancakes. sarah (the other half of “us”) and i made them a couple of days ago. turns out she got to some of them before i did, so these didn’t make much of a breakfast. regardless, believe me when i tell you they taste better than they look.

if you’re looking for a recipe, it’s quite simple. i took the quickest and easiest pancake recipe i could find and added a handful or two of ghirardelli dark chocolate chips that we’ve had sitting around. here’s the details:

Good Old Fashioned Pancakes

  • 1 1/2 cups all purpose flour
  • 3 1/2 tsp baking powder
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1 tbsp sugar
  • 1 1/4 cup milk
  • 1 egg
  • 3 tbsp melted butter

sift together salt, flour, baking powder and sugar. add milk, egg and melted butter. mix. make pancakes.

that’s the basics. i added chocolate chips, for obvious reasons. fresh is best, but they refrigerate not-so-terribly and make a decent next day breakfast when toasted. i enjoyed them thoroughly, though we couldn’t help but think that the dark chocolate actually detracted from the taste and texture of the pancake. maybe i added too much chocolate. the idea of a chocolate chip pancake was just too alluring, and in the end we paid the price.

lesson learned. sometimes simple is best.


breakfast 2.

as i said, sarah got to the leftovers before i did. there were only 2 pancakes left for me. resolution? breakfast revisited in the form of toasted cinnamon raisin bread with cream cheese. this is a staple in our house. it’s too simple, super quick, and quite delicious. good for a lazy morning or one of those “late for work” days.

not much else to say here.
