Sunday morning pancakes

y morning pancakes9

Linda makes this awesome recipe
for an oven pancake with lots of eggs and butter that she bakes in a pyrex casserole dish. It slowly rises and 20 minutes later it’s ready for maple syrup and joyful consumption. My role — aside from eating, fair and square, my half of the pancake — is to be the after-breakfast cleanup crew. On this particular Sunday morning I took one look at the egg shells in the sink waiting to be added to our compost container and was taken by the white-on-white of the shells against the bowl. It’s a celebration of Sunday morning breakfasts, when there’s no need to be rushing out the door to head off to work and you can relish a second cup of coffee and simply hang out with each other, grateful for this time together.
