Short Stack

Day #3 of my favorite ways to use yogurt!

Who doesn’t love a short stack?


I made a batch of oatmeal pancakes to use up some egg whites and layered them with cocoa-yogurt and fruit.

For the yogurt layer, I just mixed some Oikos with cocoa powder – easy, and a bit more decadent for a Friday morning breakfast.

The oatmeal pancakes were the normal mix (1/2 cup oats and egg whites, cinnamon, salt, 1 tsp baking powder), cooked over medium heat until set.


Pancake. Yogurt. Berries. Pancake. Yogurt. Berries.


These (plus a few cups of coffee) will definitely keep me going today.


I’ve got a long day ahead of me!

  • Working until 10 am
  • Getting my bangs trimmed
  • Getting on the road!

I’m driving the 5.5 hour drive all by myself today to have a “girls weekend” with my mom and older sister.

I’ve got a lunch + snacks packed in the car, tons of cds, and a full tank of gas!

This weekend is going to be so. much. fun. I can’t wait!!!

What are your favorite “road trip” songs/cds? I’m always up for new music suggestions!



  1. My dad always made us ‘short stacks’ growing up. I love when he makes pancakes and still calls them that. :)

  2. I think I’m going to try those pancakes for breakfast tomorrow – can’t wait!
    Have a fun girls weekend – those are the best!

  3. those pancakes look so soft!! must be the egg whites! its like a pancake omelet with delicious yogurt and strawberries! do u have a recipe for those oatmeal pancakes? id love to try them! <3

    • Yup – the recipe is in the post. I just mix all that together and then pour it in the pan!

  4. Have a great weekend!

  5. Regina Spektor! My husband I are both obsessed with her. The sound is so unique that you are totally kept interested.

  6. Those pancakes look amazing!

    Car trips and disco/pop music.
    Keeps me bopin

    Especially when I am alone, I get to sing at the top of my lungs.

  7. have fun on your girls weekend – that sounds like SO MUCH FUN! and those pancakes – drool (per usual).

  8. That is one of my favorite pancake toppings–yummy! About how many eggs = 1/2 cup egg whites? I hope you have a fabulous girls weekend! I love listening to books on tape while I’m driving. I listened to the whole David Sedaris book “When You are Engulfed in Flames” on my cross-country trip and it was awesome! Glee soundtracks also make amazing driving music. Good luck and have fun! :)

  9. Have a great weekend!! I’m working on a new playlist for my road trip to MD today- last time I was driving by myself I discovered what horrible, horrible music I have on my Ipod.
    I like anything upbeat for driving to keep you from getting bored or tired ;)

  10. i love listening to yellowcard on the road! nice and upbeat to keep me awake!

  11. breakfast twin! I’m eating a stack of oatmeal pancakes right this instant. Love love love!

  12. Road trip music to me is always classic rock because that is always what my dad listened to.

  13. I just put an Aerosmith song on a mix CD. “Walk this way.” It was ridiculous and really pumped me up actually. I haven’t listened to them in years.

    Another song that makes me want to hit the road is A.C. Newman’s “Like a Hitman, Like a Dancer.” I don’t know what it is about that song, but I’ve never slapped a steering wheel so much.

    I have tons of other suggestions. I should share some of the playlists I craft with you sometime!

  14. Looks delicious!
    Road Trips=80s & 90s music! It’s a must! :)

  15. Aw, I want a girls weekend! Thinking about the great times that you are going to have should get you through your long work day. That breakfast oughta help too, looks great!

  16. Have fun on your girl’s weekend!!! I would love a girls weekend with my mom and sister.

  17. i love listening to 80’s girl groups on the road. the go-go’s and bangles come to mind.
