wait, what? is that a....cranberry!?
Indeed, friends. That is a cranberry you see. In fact, those are cranberry pancakes. I got the idea from Hannah over at Bittersweet (recipe linked here), but I didn't follow her recipe because I didn't have any white cornmeal. So I used the basic recipe for pancakes in Vegan with a Vengeance and added cranberries to it. The pancakes themselves were...not fluffy haha... But they were still good! The cranberries were genius (thanks, Hannah!). Nice and tart. They balanced out the sweetness of the syrup on the pancakes. And they do cook in the time it takes to cook the pancakes, in case you were wondering. I had my doubts, but it all turned out well.
I also made some greasy potatoes.
These were roasted in some canola oil, seasoned salt, pepper, and onion powder. They were lovely, especially with some (lots of) ketchup.
Oh, in case you don't know what brinner is, it stands for 'brown dinner'. See?
no veggies. none.
Just kidding, it means breakfast for dinner. Those are the tempeh sausage crumbles from VWAV. They were amazing. And you know what? Despite the complete and total lack of vegetables here (potatoes don't really count towards nutrition, no matter how good they are), it was really, really great. Like, really great. I surprised myself, especially since I generally suck at making breakfast. I don't even especially like breakfast that much. But apparently, I like it for dinner. The best part? The pancakes were like dessert, so I didn't get a sweets craving afterwards. Woo!
So go make yourself some pancakes. Because you deserve it.
