I might as well admit it. I'm lazy. Even though I got up at 5:45 to go to the gym and watch the sunrise from the hamster wheel ... er treadmill, when it came time for breakfast I wanted to streamline the whole pancake assembly line. (Phillip had mixed up the whole wheat pancakes the night before so all I had to do was cook and serve them.) Lazy me.
Let me back up. In our family we eat peanut butter on our pancakes with syrup. Since none of the kids are old enough to cut up their own pancakes I usually cut them up into bit sized pieces with my handy dandy pair of kitchen scissors (a real time saver!). The only problem is that once the peanut butter is on the pancakes it makes a huge mess. The solution? Today I was inspired to make peanut butter syrup! I mixed a 1/2 cup peanut butter, 3/4 cup reduced sugar syrup and 1/4 cup milk, heated it up in the microwave and poured it over the pancakes. I can't tell you how much faster it was that way!! The only down side is that the syrup ends up looking like ... well ... you can imagine. Delicious though!
