blueberry buttermilk pancakes

We have a division of labor in my house. I make sure everyone gets a birthday card, the carnivore makes sure the lawn gets mowed. I make the bed everyday, the carnivore checks to make sure we are safe if there are any scary noises late at night. Why am I telling you this? Well, because while I do a majority of the cooking in our family, the carnivore is in charge of foods that require flipping. That means if we are having quesadillas, grilled cheese sandwiches, etc. the carnivore is in charge. Pancakes also fall in this category.

Now, I will admit the both the carnivore and I love breakfast foods and we probably over do it on the weekends. When people come to visit they always remark on how much food we have for breakfast, but it is normal to us. Hasbrowns, eggs, toast, bacon or facon - you name it we usually have it. However, we usually skip or eat a very light lunch on these days. There is only so much cooking a girl can do in one week after all!

This past weekend we really outdid ourselves. Not only did the carnivore make me pancakes, but he made me blueberry buttermilk pancakes from scratch! He found the recipe at dreamydish and they were dreamy. Because I didn't look at the recipe closely enough before we went shopping (oops!) we had to substitute regular milk for part of the recipe, but they were just fine. Fluffy and sweet with tangy berries in every bite.

Now, I know pancakes, especially ones lathered in butter and smothered in syrup might not be the healthiest breakfast out there. However, the blueberries do pack in lots of vitamin C and antioxidants. These little powerhouses are reported to help with brain functioning and protect against cancer. So eat up - especially if you can con someone else into making them for you!
