Betty Crocker Maple Walnut Pancakes


Betty Crocker Maple Walnut Pancakes

So my family is in kind of a weird spot right now. We haven’t really shared this at all with anyone but one of my son’s friends is being tested for Covid-19. We just found out yesterday. The issue is that he was at our house last Thursday. We have only had about 4 people in our house since this all began in March and he was 1 of them. So, now we are waiting. I had started coming down with something on Sunday – a cold, the flu, I don’t know. But, I have several underlying issues that makes my lungs susceptible to all kinds of things like bronchitis, etc… Not good if I get Covid. So, we are waiting for his results. My doctor is watching me just to be careful. So, we are in a weird space because we are all locked down. No one goes out at all now. No work, no groceries, nothing. Well, hopefully in a few days we will at least know for sure what is going on.

On a better note Breakfast for Dinner again! Our weekly breakfast for dinner was a Betty Crocker recipe that I found when I was looking for inspiration on waffles. It sounded so good I had to try it.

Verdict: This was a super hit! It is an easy meal to make in no time. The kids loved the walnut topping and want to try it over ice cream! I served this with bacon and fruit salad to complete our meal.

      Thank you! We only have had like 4 people in our house since March. We feel we were getting complacent in our thinking that we were being careful. We are waiting to see what the results are.

        You definitely were. It would be a mean way of irony if you were tested positive now. Fingers crossed, Marci!
