I love Sundays. I usually try to get all some of the house work done on every other day… because Sunday is “chill out” day. Sunday is lazy mornings, relaxing over coffee, before heading to Mass day. And if time permits, I’ll even indulge the family with pancakes… because who doesn’t love a fresh-off-the-pan, fluffy, sweet pancake for breakfast?

Life has been supremely busy as of late, so it’s been a while since I’ve made these. But when I make them, the whole family is happy.
