Dessert , Y'all!

It's the beginning of another week and it got off to a sweet start.
I spent half the day cooking up some yummy food for this week. I was listening to an audiobook of The Thin Man as I chopped, sauteed and mixed. The time just flew by. Dessert has been pitifully lacking in my lunches recently. After my most recent muffin debacle I think I've shied away from experimental baking. But, experimental frying...that's another story. We had a box of whole wheat pancake mix calling my name yesterday morning and a neglected fancy pancake waffle frying pan begging to be salvaged from the back of the cupboard. I added some cinnamon, nutmeg, cloves, and ginger to the mix along with a few drops of all the random extracts lurking around the baking cupboard. It turns out vanilla, almond and orange extracts make spices taste even better in your pancake waffles. I threw some frozen blueberries into a saute pan and added a little water to sauce it up. Oh, I also used about a tablespoon of maple syrup to the whole thing. The whole batch yielded about 3/4 cup of blueberry sauce.
And, even though I had a breakfast item for dessert I still had my usual veggie fritatta. It was super sized this morning because, well, just because. Is that so wrong? Also, me and the ol' significant other are now completely in love with Ezekiel. It's especially good toasted. Remember how I said I eat like a scavenger in the evening? That grazing is made somewhat healthier now that usually chomping on this stuff. Now, if only I didn't slather it with so much butter. Baby steps.

    "You can hear the ocean if you put this to your ear." She put the shell to her ear and
    screamed. There was a hermit crab inside and it pinched her ear.
