The food that wasn’t
Today I planned to share a fabulous recipe for Bacon and Chocolate German Pancakes with you, only something went wrong. Terribly wrong.
After I read roughly half the food produced in America is never eaten, costing the average household $600 per year, I woke determined to be frugal with our food. Only I think my ideology overtook my good sense. Or surpassed my culinary skills.
Because our 2-year-old, who gleefully accepted what he thought was chocolate cake for breakfast, spit out his pancake and screwed up his face. “Mama, what did you feed me?” he cried, trying to scrape the last bits of it off his tongue.
It was bacon fat, rather than butter. Whole wheat, rather than white. Unsweetened cocoa powder rather than chocolate chips.
What can I say? I get it now. The sleep deprivation makes me a little insane.
This post is a part of Real Food Wednesday, where I join other bloggers for tips on how to prepare real food (which I obviously need).
