Breakfast for Dinner in 2012
Happy New Year! I hope that everyone had a great Sunday! It was a gorgeous day in New Jersey and it was so nice to see so many people biking, running, and walking. I wasn’t planning on working out today, but since I wasn’t feeling stellar after last nights festivities, I decided it was time to sweat it out. After brunch at Mom’s, I came home, laced up the shoes, and hit the pavement with Kala. I decided to not bring a watch or music…good decision. It was so nice out! The first few steps were a little rough, but once Kala and I got in the groove, it was smooth sailing. 40 minutes later, we were back in the apartment and I decided, why not go for a full hour…20 minute at-home circuit.
I felt SO MUCH better after that sweat session! A couple of errands later, it was time for some football, household chores, and planning out the week. Tomorrow I have to train a client in the morning; then I’m hoping to get in a outdoor run, if it’s not too chilly; a evening yoga class; Costco (because my fridge is empty); and Sports Authority for some more equipment.
Let’s talk about these pancakes that I whipped up. I love having breakfast for dinner. Since brunch was eggs, toast, and bacon, I was craving something sweet for dinner. Enter these bad boys…Try them out and let me know what you think.
