I catch a bunch of Tik Tok recipes. There’s a teenager, Eitan Bernath, who just has a great, young, fun energy about food.
Yesterday he tried making a pancakes in a rice cooker so today we did that with the kids.
The kids love Sunday morning pancakes. They basically make the batter (and they’re getting better at cracking eggs).
It was a lot of fun. We even stuffed the pancakes with some goodies. We were able to use more eggs and milk because of how we cooked it so we offset the goodness with m&ms, Kit Kat’s and marshmallows.
And the best parts? Easy for me (no flipping pancakes over a stove over and over). And the kids felt like they were eating a cake (it looked like slices of cake)! And easy to make (just pour the batter in, and turn on the rice cooker!)
#iamgrateful and #iamthankful when something so easy elicits responses like “You made my day” or “You melted my heart” or “Can I have more”?
Solid morning folks. I recommend trying this if even just to mix things up.
This is the best breakfast sandwich I’ve ever had. The biscuit is wonderful. Buttery. Salty. Savory. And peppery! While the egg is perfectly cooked and framed and balanced (I love how clean this sandwich is around the edges; it means every layer and ingredient was thoughtfully added and deliberately set.) It’s just wonderful.
I love turning day old garlic knots into breakfast sliders. When there’s some leftover bruschetta, well, it’s a game changer. #iamgrateful and #iamthankful for morning inspirations. Enjoy Priya KC Bhatt
I. Love. Nachos. Best in the city? El Vez NYC all day. San Loco on the tail end of a bender. But nobody is perfect. For me the perfect nachos aren’t piled but sorted perfectly side-by-side like a jigsaw puzzle. Perfectly topped with whatever my heart desires on that day from a protein standpoint. Smothered in a balance of quest accents to a mixed peppery cheese blend. One pickled jalapeño per bite. Sour cream squirted on top with a $2 condiments squeeze bottle. Salsa and guacamole on the side with a spoon to dollop each bite. WHOA, I am hungry. Happy Nachos Day, Folks. #iamgrateful and #iamthankful for all the nacho memories.
Jaanu took his first bite of solids today. The person to feed him? His sister. #Iamgrateful and #Iamthankful for the love she has for him, and for the obvious reciprocation just based on the look on his face when he sees her or when she talks to him. Shout out to Neil Kaka who got to hold him the whole way through, and then some.
I feel like we have to share this video with the world because everyone thinks you’re always happy. They don’t realize that you are capable of getting angry. For about 5-10 minutes every day. When we feed you solids, but don’t move at the speed of light in doing so.
It’s adorable now. It’s especially adorable because you do it for everything. Oatmeal? Sure. Carrots? Yup. Peas? Mmmhmmm. Squash? You betcha.
What’s going to happen when we get you stuff that actually tastes good?
But your Mom is also concerned with sharing this video, at least a little, because your reaction makes it seem like we never feed you. Ever. Like this meal was the first time you’ve eaten in 7.5 months. So before I share the video I have to make a Public Service Announcement and let the world know that you are, actually, quite well fed. (Your legs serve as evidence.)
So today my love for you is fitful. Just like your love for food. Amen.
