I don’t think this picture of little me was taken on Easter, but the line up of bunnies seems appropriate for an Easter post. A few weeks ago, Sean went to Target and completely bought out their supply of Cadbury mini eggs for me. Mini Eggs are my favorite. He came back with 6-1lb. bags! It’s pretty glorious. We’re on bag two. Correction, I’m on bag two. Sean maybe has a few here and there but any progress made on the Mini Eggs is my doing. He also bought a much smaller stash of his favorite, Reese Peanut Butter Cup Eggs. Anyway, all this to say that given the amount of Easter candy already in our house I did not make baskets for us this year. So we celebrated with pancakes instead.
Sean and I have never made pancakes together before. We both remember Bisquick pancakes from our childhood and that’s what we wanted. But when we got to the pancake section in the grocery store all we could find was Bisquick Shake ‘N Pour. That wasn’t going to work. With some reluctance, we picked up a mix for Swedish pancakes instead.
They promised thin pancakes, which is what we wanted. Our pancake preference is not the thick kind of pancake that sucks up all syrup, which we call syrup suckers. After you covered these Swedish pancakes with butter and syrup, they were just as good as the Bisquick version.
See how that syrup pools? To me that’s pancake perfection.
After our pancakes we headed to the Cathedral of St. Matthew in DC for mass. We were in very good company. We arrive around 9:15 a.m. for 10:00 a.m. mass. We stood in line to get in and when we finally did it was standing room only! It was still a lovely service, so I’m glad we stayed. Now we’ll know for next year.
Hope you all had a happy Easter filled with your favorite treats and beautiful spring weather!
