I’m always chastising my parents for spoiling Kevin so much. Kevin from heaven, Mr. So So, 4th child, only boy, etc.
Truth? I’m the worst offender.
His birthday was in February and since I wasn’t home for it, I told him we’d have a belated birthday date when I came home. So Thursday I picked him up from school, took him to see The Lorax, and we got pizza and ice cream. Dream come true for 10 year olds and 22 year olds alike.
And this morning, since it’s my last day home, when he woke up I said “Kevinnnnnn what do you want for breakfast I’ll make you something special!!”
The boy loves pancakes. And banana bread. And chocolate. We share DNA, clearly.
And Kelly lodged a complaint on my last post about the lack of Kevin pictures. So here you go, 2nd favorite sister.
adapted from Crumb
3/4 cup all purpose flour
1 1/4 tsp baking powder
1/4 tsp salt
3/4 cup milk
1 tbs honey
1/2 tsp vanilla
1 banana, mashed
1 1/2 tbs melted butter, plus more for the griddle
chocolate chips (optional)
Mix dry ingredients in a small bowl. In a separate bowl, combine wet ingredients.
Mix together until just combined. Heat up a pan with butter, and drop the batter using a measuring cup or ladle.
Add chocolate chips if your Lenten obligations allow.
Cook until they are bubbling around the edges.
Discard fork and knife and eat with your hands, sans syrup. They’re just as light and fluffy as the Bisquick variety, with a light banana flavor. This is what I’ll imagine now when I hear Jack Johnson’s dulcet tones.
As we speak, my mom just said “Nothing wrong with my boy. He’s perfect.”
Let’s see how this plays out when he’s a teenager.
