It is a whirlwhind week for us. We got back from Illinois last night and picked up our dear friend Helene (Tartelette) at the airport. She is teaching a food photography and food styling workshop in Salt Lake City today. I am so excited! Tomorrow we are going to the EVO Conference in Park City. It is a busy week, but a fun one. I don’t even have to unpack from our trip:) Last week, before our travel madness began, Josh woke up early and made me Whole Wheat Raspberry & Mango Pancakes for breakfast. It was a nice and tasty surprise.
I haven’t had that many weird cravings during my pregnancy, but I have been enjoying pancakes on a regular basis. They always taste good to me. Josh knows whole wheat pancakes are my favorite, so he whipped up a basic whole wheat buttermilk pancake base. He then added plump raspberries and juicy mango chunks to the pancake batter. Great move on his part. The fruit really made these pancakes special.
Josh walked into our bedroom with a plate of steaming hot pancakes and I immediately woke up with a smile. He served the pancakes with a little maple syrup and extra raspberries and mango chunks. I devoured the pancakes. Josh did a fantastic job. It was nice being pampered with a special breakfast in bed. I really have the best husband.
This week is going to be crazy busy for us, but as soon as life calms down, I am requesting Whole Wheat Rapsberry & Mango Pancakes. I can’t wait to eat these again! They were exceptional!
If you are going to be at the EVO Conference, make sure you say hello! You can’t miss the baby bump:)
