For the last five mornings, I have been making pancakes for breakfast.  On the first two mornings, I used bananas as a filling.  My mom and niece took the train out here to spend some time with us, and I ended up using the last of the bananas on Saturday morning when I decided to make us pancakes for brunch after my Writer’s Group.

On yesterday morning, I used chia seeds, and then today, I used a combination of chia seeds and sunflower seeds.  Believe it or not, it was filling.  I got full after eating the second thick pancake.  Another new thing that I tried was using honey instead of syrup for a topping, along with vegan butter.  They were delicious!!

Garlic Butter Chicken Sandwiches

A few days ago, I decided that I would make chicken tacos for my son and I, and then vegan crumble tacos for my daughter.  Well, that would have been possible if I had tortilla shells at home.  I had everything but tortilla shells and chips.  Go figure!  Since it was later in the day, I adlibbed on a meal for my daughter, and then my creative juices were flowing as far as trying to figure out what I would come up with for my son and I.

It is a good thing to give thanks unto the Lord, and to sing praises unto thy name, O Most High:

To shew forth thy lovingkindness in the morning, and thy faithfulness every night,

Upon an instrument of ten strings, and upon the psaltery; upon the harp with a solemn sound.

For thou, Lord, hast made me glad through thy work: I will triumph in the works of thy hands.

Lord, how great are thy works! and thy thoughts are very deep.

Psalms 92: 1-5, KJV
