It’s been quite awhile since I’ve done a Sunday breakfast of any sort. I haven’t really felt like it, to be honest. Not that I don’t enjoy my breakfast foods…I’d eat them for every meal if I could. But I like a lazy, quiet Sunday morning, where I can surf the internets, watch Meet the Press, and not take a shower until 11 or 12.
But this week, I thought I’d make an effort, even though I still feel like crap. About a year or two ago, Food & Wine emailed me a recipe collection for healthy breakfasts. One of them was Cinnamon Polenta Pancakes. I made them, because I love anything with cornmeal in it, but I don’t really recall much about them. So I thought I’d give them another go.
I liked them. A lot. Which is good…Even though I’m still clogged up a bit and can’t exactly taste much of anything, I at least have my appetite back. We never get too fancy with our toppings–Just some butter and maple syrup.
It makes for a hearty lazy- winter-morning breakfast, especially paired with some crispy bacon or some piping-hot breakfast sausage (which, unfortunately, we didn’t have).
I would probably toss in some nutmeg and vanilla, just for some extra flavor, but that’s the nice thing about pancakes. They’re a blank slate that you can do almost anything to! And there are a few leftovers, so we’ll have breakfast for tomorrow too! In the meantime, I need to finish up laundry, grab a shower, and get the place tidied up a bit…The bambino might be having a visitor later today, and I’d like to get some of the clutter out of the way.
