I am a breakfast person. My mom instilled in me that breakfast is the most important meal of the day and she would not allow me to leave the house without eating a hearty breakfast. Now that I have my own family, I am trying to establish the importance of breakfast in our home. Mike usually prepares breakfast during the weekday while I do my damnedest to cook something edible during the weekend. This morning I woke up early and couldn't go back to sleep so I decided to make breakfast. I was planning to cook bulad (dried fish) and eggs. My cooking ability is limited to frying, cooking rice and boiling water. When I opened our refrigerator I saw the pancake mix...so voila! I made pancakes!
It was so easy to prepare...Thank God for instant mixes!
I tried to design the pancake with a smiley face using chocolate syrup but the syrup ran down to the mouth that Mike did not recognized my masterpiece and though he didn't jump up and down or say any words of gratitude I knew he appreciated my effort :)
