Good-bye Summer-Blueberry Pancakes

While the thermometer outside says 99 degrees at 10:52 am (and we have excessive heat warnings for the day, 110+), my calendar is saying that the end of summer is here. Tomorrow is the first day back to public school for children in the fifth largest school district in the country. Yes, there are some mom’s who are breathing a sigh of relief, while others are quietly wiping their tears as they kiss their “babies” off to school.

My “baby” is making the leap to middle school this year and she is quite excited about that leap. She is that age “in-between”  playing dolls and wanting to wear make-up and high heels. These are the years of excitement and fear as I watch her grow-up. I know what may be in store for her and for me ( I already have five grown daughters!) and I just pray that these years are filled with many more joys then sorrow!

So as a farewell to summer I decided to make her pancakes, not just any pancakes but Blueberry Pancakes. They were a hit and made her (and my granddaughter) quite happy! The smile on her face said it all…while she will always be my baby and I saw that in her eyes, she is becoming a young lady. Good-bye summer and days of past…hello fall, new adventures and growing pains.. 🙂


Blueberry Pancakes

2 cups flour

1/2 tsp. baking soda

1 tbsp. baking soda

1/2 tsp. salt

1/4 cup sugar

1/2 tsp. cinnamon

2 eggs

1 1/4 cups milk

1 tsp. vanilla

3 tbsp. melted butter

1 1/2 cups blueberries

 Mix all dry ingredients in a bowl.  Beat eggs and add in rest of liquid ingredients. Pour into dry and mix, being careful to not over-mix. Heat a large skillet over medium heat, and coat with cooking spray. Pour 1/4 cupfuls of batter onto the skillet, then add some blueberries on top of pancake. Cook until bubbles appear on the edges of pancake. Flip pancake and cook until browned on the other side.
