I thought I was being quite clever when I planned my little V-Day surprise for the hubby...unfortunately it didn't totally work out as planned...
My husband gets up every morning around 4:45 to leave the house by 5:15 to get to work before 6:30 AM. Me & Jenna usually snooze our way through the morning and don't get up until well after he's gone, around 8 AM.
Clever little me decided it would be sweet to cook my husband a V-Day breakfast of bacon & heart-shaped pancakes. It sounded good in theory... So I set my alarm to get up early.
The alarm went off and I roll out of bed at 4:45 (I am not a morning person, btw) and did I mention I'm completely blind without my glasses? So I head to the fridge without my glasses, open it and see my beautiful flowers from my husband.
As I pull my flowers out of the fridge, I proceed to knock over his mom's flowers all over my kitchen floor - water and leaves are everywhere. Damn! So I try to clean up the mess and realize I'm running out of time to cook breakfast.
So I hurry and start the bacon and pancakes. I used one of the shake and pour pancake mixes for the first time. Little did I know those suckers build up pressure while your shaking. I opened the bottle and mix blew up all over me - face, hair, shirt, everywhere!
(Warning: Pancake mix may blow up in your face!)
So with what little mix that was actually left in the container, I attempted the pancakes. I used a heart cookie cutter, but was having trouble getting the right amount so it wasn't too thick. The first one I tried ended up deformed... looking more like a massacred pancake than a heart pancake. The second one I tried burned... and set off the smoke alarm.
So my pancakes should have looked like this:
They ended up looking more like this:
My husband runs in trying to turn the smoke alarm off...he did but it was too late, I woke Jenna up. So here I am on Valentine's Day with water all over the floor, pancake mix in my hair and eyebrows, burnt, deformed pancakes, and a mad woken up baby.
Needless to say, I finally whipped up edible pancakes for my husband before he left for work :-) What did everyone else do for V-Day?
