Chicken and Potato Pancakes

It’s been SUCH a dreary day…

Cloudy Trees

And chilly, especially since it’s the first frakkin day of JUNE!


I wish Mother Nature would get her act together. This is a bit much.

Remember the extra chicken breast I mentioned? I wanted to use it for some Chicken and Potato Pancakes.

I was surprised that the bambino actually ate his entire cake this time around…But the promise of dessert might’ve had something to do with that.
