My Neck O' The Woods - Hell Week and Pancakes

I don't know if it was because of a full moon or if because today is the Summer Solstice, but what is up with people lately?! People have been soooooo hateful and rude!

Last week I literally had people making me cry every. single. day. of. the. week!!!!!

I am sooooooo over rude, hateful, crabby people.

Let me break it down for ya:

1) I'm sorry that you're having a bad day/ month/ year/ life, but don't take it out on me!

2) Rude people are not cool. One of my biggest pet peeves on the planet is rudeness.Grrrrr!

3) You picked your medical insurance, not me, so don't scream at me that you have to pay a copay every time you walk through my doors. Again, you picked it. Not me.

4) It is RUDE to hang up on people without saying good-bye. R-U-D-E!!!!! Take the extra 3 seconds it takes to say 'bye, m'kay?!

Ok, now that I've got that out of my system, Sunday was Father's Day so, after I dragged my carcass out of bed at about 8:00 (which is amazing, really) I gathered all the ingredients to make the men Cinnamon Roll Pancakes!!!!!

Oh. My. Gosh.

Dawn (the fabulous) posted last week this yum-yum recipe for Cinnamon Roll Pancakes and I immediately knew this is what I wanted to make for Father's Day breakfast. I need to insert this bit of info for y'all: I am NOT a breakfast person....unless someone else is making the breakfast and bringing it to me in bed. I don't do breakfast. So, because I am not a breakfast person, I don't make breakfast for the men in my house. Call me a bad wife or momma, but it ain't my thang. So, to make up for this no-breakfast-cooking 364 days a year, I made them these AWESOME pancakes!

You also need to know that I healthy-fied them up a bit! Shocking, I know.

I doubled the recipe:

1) instead of 1 cup of butter for the cinnamon filling, I only used 1/2 (because I'm the one that has to work that butter off ya know).

2)I tried to swirl the cinnamon filling around the pancake, but that was a horrible disaster. So, I just dumped the whole bag of cinnamon junk into the pancaked batter and mixed it up.

3)Speakin of batter, you could totally get away with using a box of pancake mix and adding the cinnamon and cream cheese stuff to it. Just sayin.

4)A little of the cream cheese topping goes a long your hips and it's super sweet, so add a dab and spread it with a spoon of the pancake while it's still warm!

I hope everyone had a great Father's Day....

and pray for me so that I'll have a much nicer and rude-people-free week! (because I don't think I can take much more...or I'm running away to the home for run-away mothers)

I'll be at the home for runaway mothers myself, except two of the short people will be with me. Hope your week (and your patients) shapes up!!

Hope your week is better! Obviously, I too, suffered last week. I hope this one is better for us both!

that looks so good!!
Rudeness stinks!

Dawn said...

Girly, you just let me know who was mean to you. I'll get out my bat. I don't like rude people either and I believe everyone should say bye at the end of a phone conversation as well.

I'm so glad you tried the pancakes. I've been wanting to make them. Maybe I'll do that this week seeing how Brett is STILL without a job and everyone is home all the time. Ha!

I thought I might make those for cooking club, but now I'm thinking they may not stay warm enough in the transporting. I've been checking out some other recipes on Pinterest. Are you on Pinterest? No? You should be. Let me know if you'd like an invite. You will LOVE it. =)

You are so my kind of girl on cutting back on a recipe. Why aren't you following me on Pinterest. BTW when I make Chocolate Gravy- I use splenda! LOL

Milah said...

Did you have to share that recipe? I'm mean really? Now you know I"m gonna try it sometime. : (

Working for the public is not easy, I worked for an accountant during tax season for several years and boy you want to talk about mean and bitter people! Ugh!

Impulsive Addict said...

Oh no girl. You need a new job. People are ALWAYS mean to you! I hate to hear that. I do insurance and billing from the comfort of my HOME. Well...I did. I just quit. My boss is a cheating ass. But that's a whole long boring story. Anyway, I just needed to tell you that I am craving those pancakes right now and my ass doesn't NEED that shiz. It's ever-expanding and so are my thighs. So no more recipes that look tasty. Post a yucky something next time. Kthanks.

Oh my gosh, I can not stand it when people just get off the phone without saying goodbye!! It is called good manners & I personally need CLOSURE!!!

Those pancakes look to die for!! I am going to have to make them for my crew this weekend. Thanks for the heads up about reducing the butter!

You work in a doctor's office? My (offline) rant has been the rudeness of the people in the front offices. One of them made me cry a couple of weeks ago!
Either way, my rule is - never give someone a reason to be rude to you. If they are rude, it's their problem not yours. And then I go cry. LOL. :)
I'm going to look again at that recipe. I'm wondering if I can use wheat flour in them to health them up a bit.
And whatever about working off the butter - you are a skinny thing.
