Saturday morning pancakes

I've taken a bye week from Weight Watchers this week. My middle of the week was the suck and cookies and donut at work got me, so I decided to skip a weigh in and points counting this week. Which meant a Frosty at lunch today. It also meant pancakes for breakfast.

I had blueberries in the fridge which obviously necessitated making blueberry pancakes.

The internet gave me a recipe that I tinkered with to work with what I had in the fridge.

I truly, deeply adore breakfast. I don't know if it comes from working nights myself now or growing up with a mother that worked nights and often made breakfast for dinner, but I can eat breakfast ANY time of day or night.

Especially sweet stuff and especially pancakes. I do love them something fierce. Enough to try and make a Weight Watchers low point pancakes last weekend, it doesn't quite meet my standards yet.

These were excellent pancakes however. With bacon and warm maple syrup, I was in breakfast heaven.

I mean really, yum.
