My friend, Hannah, and I had a girls night last night. It was fucking awesome, and just what I needed. After eating a bunch of delicious sushi at Fuji Ya (and mochi ice cream!!!), we proceeded to drink all the wine in my apartment while practicing yoga poses. Oddly enough, that’s not the first time I’ve done drunk yoga. It was honestly probably a little dangerous. Though, less dangerous than the champagne and shoulder stand girls night with another friend a few months ago. Hannah and I stuck to pretty basic poses. And we fucking rocked ’em.
After we finished the wine, we switched to beer. I insisted upon drinking it out of the Turkish tea cups she bought me, because we are classy fucking ladies. They’re so pretty and fancy. I bet I refilled my tea cup 10 times just to finish one beer. Worth it.
When I woke up this morning, I found that Hannah had become one with the couch. In fact, I wasn’t even sure she was still here. Had I not noticed a foot sticking out from a blanket, I’d have sat right on her.
In recent years, I’ve become something of a morning person (not like 6am morning, but like 9am morning), so I decided to make us breakfast. I settled on pancakes, because they’re super fucking easy. I made these from scratch, while hungover, and they still turned out great. Plus, it look like 10 minutes.
Hannah doesn’t like chocolate chips in her pancakes, which I think is stupid.
The Best Pancakes Ever
1 1/4 cups flour
2 1/2 tablespoons sugar
3/4 teaspoon salt
2 teaspoons baking powder
1 1/3 cups almond milk (regular is fine, too, I just never have it on hand)
3 tablespoons coconut oil
Splash of almond extract (or vanilla, if you’re boring)
Whisk it all together in a bowl, and pour desired amount into a greased and heated skillet. Add chocolate chips, if you like delicious things. Cook over medium-high heat until the batter starts bubbling quite a bit. Then flip and cook for a few more minutes. Repeat with remaining batter.
Serve with butter, warm maple syrup, and peanut butter. Yes, peanut butter. Trust me. Just a thin layer, then topped with maple syrup. You’re welcome.
Once you’ve eaten, go back to bed.
