Girls Night In + Pancakes

So glad it’s the weekend :)

I was so confused when I woke up this morning. I kept thinking it was Friday and that I overslept and never turned on my alarm clock!

Maggie, Roxy, and I had a girls night last night, and it was a great way to end the week.



Nick was doing sound at a concert last night, so I came home to hang out with Maggie while he was gone.

I heated up the last of the meatballs for dinner and had them on a small sweet potato.


Marinara on sweet potatoes is awesome! I need to remember this combination.


Maggie and I played after eating dinner and then watched What Not to Wear and Food Revolution before falling asleep on the floor :) She may be crazy sometimes, but Maggie is a good cuddler.

Once Nick got home, I got out my sourdough starter to feed it so we could have pancakes today!


It’s been a while since we’ve had the time to make pancakes, so I was more than ready for this breakfast.


Coffee – check.

Sourdough pancakes with maple syrup – check.

Cara cara orange – check. (Definitely past their season, though. I’m ready for berries!).

Unpictured bacon – check.

We just finished eating breakfast and I’m about to mix up some pizza dough for lunch with friends before we go out on an easy hike today with our dogs. Should be fun!

Nick has to head into the lab today before they  come over, so I’ve got to get this dough ready and clean up a bit before they get here.


Any fun plans today?


  1. My most fun plan today is seeing my dog after 4 weeks!

  2. Interesting combo on sweet potatoes!
    It’s already 3:30 pm over here, and I managed to do some laundry and a great shopping. Shopping was the best, now it’s time to study and write and study :/
    Eventful Saturday indeed.
    Btw, your animals are adorable!

  3. We have a kids day planned with kids for our community to watch Planet 51. Then I’m going running outside again hopefully.

  4. I missed Food Revolution! I hope they have re-runs…

    Fun plans include a 15 mile run lol. I’ll be all over Blacksburg today :D

  5. i’m meeting up with my wedding photographer today, and a blogger meet up!

  6. Yummy breakfast! :)

    Have a great weekend!

  7. What a fun girl’s night in! Love the pancakes this morning :) I watched Food Revolution, too. I’m so excited to see where it goes. The young kid from the family that Jamie has taken a liking to really tugs at my heart strings.

    Have a great weekend, Brandi!

  8. I love low key nights like that!

    I am actually doing a Food Buzz 24/24/24 tonight – they picked my submission for pizza 101 with some of the German exchange students – should be fun!!

  9. Love those pancakes! My plans for today — I am going to see Disney Princesses on Ice with my friend’s family. She has a three year old niece. It should be fun :)

  11. Your pancakes look ready for a cookbook….love it!

  12. I just came across your blog and really like it! I would have never put marinara and sweet potatoes together, but it sounds interesting. I must try that! I also watching Jamie Oliver’s Food Revolution, and am so glad someone is going to help our country change how they eat. I can’t wait to read more!

  13. Puppers are the best cuddlers :) What a great night. I love marinara on potatoes, salsa is awesome too! Your pancakes look perfect. Have a great Sunday
