Food: Fresh Blueberry Pancakes

Safeway was having a buy-one-get-one-free deal on organic blueberries the other day, so of course I had to take advantage of the savings. Ethan is learning how to like eating fresh blueberries, but still struggles with the texture issues. So instead, I decided to whip up some blueberry pancakes, complete with ground flax seed to help boost the nutrient content.

They were delicious! And Ethan actually ate them, which is unusual because he typically doesn't eat pancakes or waffles. (Can this really be my child? I absolutely love breakfast food!) After breakfast, I set up a photo shoot with the remainder, and Ethan came outside to watch. He seemed fascinated by the colors in the pancakes...

But then he grabbed a couple of berries with this look of mischief on his face, and I realized he just wanted to snatch the berries and toss them in the yard. I guess he just donated breakfast to the blue jays living in our trees. Oh, well! At least he's a generous kid, right?

  1. Wow...those look delicious! I was with Amy, Johnny and Preston recently and Amy had a plastic container of blueberries for Preston to munch on. He actually ate about 1/2 that container....unbelieveable!
