Versatile Sheet Pan Pancakes

Day 33 – Our electric bill has gone up. At first we were a bit shocked then we took a look around. All our computers, phones, dishwasher, washer, and dryer seem to be on all the time. I guess with how little we are spending in gas, which is now down to $1.40 a gallon, it…
