And so today, in a lighter note, I'm going to share breakfast with you.

Since there are only two of us in our house, this recipe makes just a small amount.

1 cup Bisquick pancake mix
1 egg
1/2 cup of milk

I stir these together until mixed but not smooth.

Heat up a big electric frying pan, slather butter on the bottom, and when the butter is hot, pour the batter in. This amount will make two very large pancakes.

While they are cooking slice 1 banana and get out a bag of flaked coconut.

Put half the banana slices on the top of each pancake while the bottom is still cooking. Sprinkle a seemly amount of coconut over that. Watch until the pancake is almost dry on the top and then using a pancake turner, flip it over. It doesn't take long on the second side since the pancake is almost done anyway, but I leave it long enough to make the bananas hot and soft, and the coconut brown. If you don't like coconut, toss some chopped pecans on instead.

Place them banana-side up on plates. Again slather each with butter and some warm maple syrup. Pour yourself a cup of black coffee and enjoy. It is every bit as good for a Sunday night dinner. Eat and enjoy.

Life is good (and fattening)
