Post-storm Pancakes

October 30, 2012

We were lucky to survive the hurricane unscathed, retaining power and internet throughout the day yesterday and so far this morning. We haven’t ventured out of the house yet, but from the window and balcony we cannot see any damage. This morning we returned the garden to the balcony. The few plants that we had left out because the containers were too big to move were a bit battered, but they are still alive.

During the storm we were worried about losing power so we tried to make our way through some of the frozen and refrigerated food. I made these oatmeal raisin cookies and we had turkey sausage and delicata squash for dinner.

This morning I tried out a new banana chocolate chip pancake recipe. It used mashed banana in the batter which made them moist and dense. The recipe called for 1/2 c. of mashed banana which I got from only one banana. I wanted to use up more banana (we have a bunch of ripe ones), so I sliced another one and added it with the chocolate (for which I used chunks cut from a bar because we didn’t have chips). The pancakes were heavy but delicious. They aren’t too sweet so they definitely needed syrup.
