Oatmeal pancakes via Cooking Light
*This is my current go-to pancake recipe. Love them!
I asked my big boy what he wanted to have for dinner. "I don't know" was his reply, which is typical.
"How about pancakes and fruit salad?"
"Pancakes? For dinner?!?" Seriously - you should've seen the look on his face. He was shocked. Dismayed, even. "We can't have pancakes for dinner. Pancakes are for breakfast!"
"Says who? We have eggs sometimes, don't we?"
"Well yeah, but eggs can be either breakfast or dinner, but pancakes are always for breakfast."
"I suppose that's usually true, but sometimes it's fun to do things a little differently, don't you think? Wouldn't it be fun and silly to have pancakes for dinner?"
Another classic look on his face as he attempted to process this proposal. After a minute, he turned to his little brother and said, "Do you want to have pancakes for dinner? Isn't that so silly!?! We are going to be so silly!"
Both boys cleaned their plates. Of course.
When he was done, I asked "Should we have pancakes for dinner again sometime?"
After careful consideration...he said, "Okay, but not too many times, because then it wouldn't be silly!"
