Focusing on the Good

I’m trying to, at least.  Which means I’m trying NOT to think about how disappointing the BYU/Ole Miss game was (for a BYU fan, you understand), and focusing instead on what we had for dinner last night.  (Dinner being a loose term, in this case.)  I had a bunch of strawberries that needed to be eaten, and I had some canned whipped cream; I considered making up some oatmeal pancake mix, decided to go the easier route and make waffles, and then thought–wait.  What if I made dinner the Family Night treat this week?  Because my friend Britt has this recipe for Brownie Batter Pancakes

Yup.  That was dinner last night, folks.  I halved the recipe she posted there and used slightly over half whole wheat flour; I also substituated 1/2 c of applesauce for that much of the oil.  That amount fed my whole family right about perfectly (they were filling!).  I also went ahead and cut up ALL of the strawberries I had left, which means that we got to be generous in that department.  Not exactly the healthiest dinner in the world, I grant you, but believe you me–if your team loses in the next week or two, having this for dinner will help cheer you up!
