Today is Zach’s birthday! So I made him chocolate pancakes with cream and strawberries (recipe here–I halved it, but added 3 tbsps cocoa instead of 2. Also, follow the recipe under the pictures, NOT the measurements listed in red).
They weren’t the prettiest, but it’s the best I can do at 8 AM with only one cup of coffee under my belt. 😛 And they were delicious, anyway. (FYI, they don’t contain eggs. That MIGHT be easier to make them vegan, if you so choose. But I’m not vegan, so don’t take my word for it.)
His sister and her boyfriend are going to come down and spend the night. I’m making special drinks for us. More on that Monday. 🙂 His sister is also bringing the cake mix I need, since Morgantown apparently doesn’t sell it. (Zach’s favorite cake is cherry chip, so I’m making it for him…yes, I’m using a box. 😛 The cream cheese icing will be from scratch, though. Recipe here.)
His parents are also coming down and we’re going to Hibachi, which Zach is excited about because he’s wanted Hibachi for months now. 😛
It should be a good day!
