Desperate for a compromise solution, I turn to the internet and search for "recipe pancakes eggs". Lo and behold, one of the top hits is this. I can't believe my eyes. Just two ingredients, eggs and bananas. That's it. No flour, no baking powder, no butter, no sugar, no nothing. Two ingredients, and I have both of them. And to top it all off, it looks like a web page that J might even read sometimes. It has that strong female bloggy vibe.
In just minutes I have my first batch ready. N eats her first one in record time. I sees them and has to have a couple of them too. They both claim that these are their new favorite food. "Even better than marshmallows?" "Yes, better than marshmallows."
I don't know if I believe they're actually better than marshmallows, but I'm grateful for a simple dinner. Simple to make, simple to eat. A rare exception to the fourth law.
