There is food at the grocery stores - and there is a grocery about every two miles. There is food at Target and at Walmart. There is food at the gas station. I am hard pressed to think of many retail establishments that do not sell or offer food (candy dish on the reception desk, etc.)
Another reason for this batch of pancakes was my 9 year old. She was in a bit of a huff that we had syrup but no store bought frozen waffles. I said I was no longer purchasing store bought frozen waffles; I would make pancakes or french toast at home from scratch. Tonight was the night to prove my point. When I make pancakes, the recipe makes 10-12 cakes depending on the size. Plenty left over to fulfill her daily breakfast needs for something to put syrup on.
More cleaning out the pantry suppers to come. Stay tuned.
