Sourdough Saturday is back!
I’ve been slacking on my sourdough lately and decided we needed to have some pancakes this morning.
How’s this for a Saturday morning?
6:14 am: Up and out of bed – no alarm clock. Just awake because of Maggie and sunlight.
7:26 am: Coffee is brewing in the syphon.
7:29 am: First of the batter goes into the hot cast iron pan. Seriously. Use cast iron for pancakes! Yes, it takes much longer to make a batch of pancakes, but they get this crust on the outside that you can’t get any other way.
7:50 am: Sit down to pancakes, apple, milk, and coffee.
I love having a glass of milk with pancakes or waffles. There’s just something comforting about sitting in your pajamas with a cold glass of milk and maple syrup-drenched bites of fluffy pancakes.
Plus, I got to use my new mason jar mug :) We got these last weekend at the BrewRidge Festival at Mountain Lake. It’s the perfect size for a glass of milk, too.
And any morning with my favorite coffee mug is a good one.
I actually bought this mug from PotteryStuff (a local artist!) a few years ago and gave it to my Pampaw for a Christmas gift, but my Mammaw let me have it back after he passed away. She doesn’t drink coffee and wouldn’t have used it, and I’m so happy to have it in the house. I think of him every time I use it.
Maggie’s curled up in Nick’s lap, and I’m about to get in the shower for my normal Saturday routine:
- Call my mom on the way to town for our Saturday morning phone call
- Farmer’s Market
- Grocery Store
- Back home for who knows what!
What would be your perfect Saturday? Meals, activities?
