Happy Saint Patricks Day Everyone

I hope you have a very happy green day!

We're not drinkers. I'd love to have a beer, but it doesn't agree with my allergies, beer for me.

Travis is making corn beef and cabbage. I also have some homemade beer bread made.

This morning I woke up super early, and made: Matcha Buttermilk Pancakes.

They were super easy to make!!!

  • 1 Cup All-Purpose Flour
  • 1 Teaspoon Baking Powder
  • ¼ Teaspoon Baking Soda
  • 2 Tablespoons Sugar
  • 1 Large Egg, Lightly Beaten
  • 3 Tablespoons Butter, Melted
  • 2 Teaspoons Matcha Green Tea Powder
  • 1 Cup Buttermilk: 
Note: If you don't have Buttermilk around I have a trick - Add 1 tablespoon lemon juice for each 1 cup of milk. I hardly buy buttermilk.  

Other things my family devoured: 

  • Green Spinach 
  • An Egg
  • Apple Sauce
  • Pumpkin Seeds AKA Pepita Seeds
  • Dark Chocolate Chips

Mica said, "We're missing a green smoothie." Yours truly AKA ME broke the glass on the blender this week. I dropped a glass into it. I managed to grab the glass, but chipped the blender in the process. :( I get the dropsies from time to time. 

Do you have a brand of a blender that you like? I don't want to go super high end because I know they can be super expensive. We do use it daily. I'd like a nice one. I have a 30% card to Khol's, so I'm thinking of checking blenders out there.

I love pancakes and Maccha!! Haven't tried to mix them and make them together at home yet though.. these look good! Happy St Pat'S Day!

After years of crummy blenders, Jason did splurge and bought us a Ninja a few months ago. It was a bit pricey, but I honestly thing it was worth the investment. Ours came with a food processor too which we use several times a week. If you want a lower end, I used to love my Nutri Bullet. You could make single serve smoothies in them so everyone got what they wanted each day.

Happy St. Patrick's Day!

Love the tip on the buttermilk. My daughter-in-law uses her Ninja every morning for smoothies and loves it. We have a Ninja too and I love it. :)

We had a nice glass blender... Marc broke it, so no more blender.
I need to get one.

Matcha buttermilk pancakes sound divine! And so fun for the holiday! Also, love your buttermilk trick. Sad that you broke the blender. We can't seem to have a blender in the house. Either my husband breaks it or it breaks itself. We went through 3 blenders in one year and were done with it. :-/
