I was exhausted last night, but luckily had dinner waiting for me when I came home! Brant whipped up some Tomato, Basil, Mozzarella Panini’s with Sweet Potato Fries.
On seeded whole grain bread, which was amazing!
I had him spread some Roasted Red Pepper & Artichoke spread from Trader Joes on mine. This spread is incredible, try it!
It was delicious once pressed.
Paired with sweet potato fries, even more amazing!
To make the fries he just cut them up and sprinkled them with seasonings.
While he cooked, I sipped on a Pomtini!
A great, quick Friday night dinner!
I had a snack yesterday afternoon that I just have to tell you guys about because it was so good. Apple clusters from Trader Joes! They are delicious!
Has anyone noticed my obsession with Trader Joe’s, yet? 🙂
Anyways, on to breakfast this morning, which was also made by my husband! Poppyseed Pancakes from 101cookbooks.com, which were so different and so good!
adapted from 101cookbooks.com
We cut the recipe in half to serve 2 (with 2 pancakes still leftover)
- 1 cup white whole wheat flour
- 1/2 teaspoon aluminum-free baking powder
- 1/4 teaspoon baking soda
- 1/4 teaspoon fine grain sea salt
- 1/6 cup poppy seeds
- 1/4 cup sunflower seeds, toasted until deeply golden
- 1 1/8 cups organic buttermilk
- 1 large organic egg, lightly beaten
- 1 tablespoon butter, melted
- 1/2 cup rolled oats (added)
1. Combine all ingredients in a medium bowl and mix. Be careful not to over mix!
2. Heat up your skillet (or pan) and cook pancakes!
3. Cook until golden brown.
4. Serve with citrus maple syrup (recipe to follow) or syrup of your choice!
Citrus Maple Syrup
- 1-2 oranges, peeled and chopped into small bits
- 1 lemon, peeled and chopped into small bits
- 1/4 cup turbinado sugar (or other natural cane sugar)
- 1/4 cup pure maple syrup
1. Cut up oranges and lemon and place in a small pot with sugar ad syrup.
2. Heat over medium heat until sugars melt and become syrup.
3. Simmer until pancakes are ready to keep warm!
Serve warm pancakes with a dollop of plain greek yogurt (if desired) and citrus syrup. Garnish with sunflower seeds.
This was a great pancake recipe. I am normally not a pancake or waffle fan, so when we make them, I like them to be different and more filling. This was perfect! Heidi has phenomenal recipes on her website – check them out.
We are off to explore for the day. See you later on. Happy Saturday!!
