Hungry Man Dinner

I thought I was out of food again. There was nothing obvious in the cupboards or fridge. I was going to walk to the grocery store but then it started raining. And, anyway, isn’t there a saying about hunger being the mother of invention? So, I found a little of this, a little of that, some flower, some ancient instant hot cocoa mix… put it all in a bowl, don’t bother measuring anything, add a little water and all of a sudden chocolate pancakes magically appear. Spread some peanut butter between the layers and you’ve got chocolate peanut butter sandwiches. Yum! What does this have to do with bikes or running or the arroyo seco that leads up to the brown mountain or the mystical experience that can be found there… who cares, none of these other posts ever go there, either, and besides, nobody even reads this, and besides – chocolate pancakes! I can’t wait to eat the rest for breakfast with black black black black coffee...

Thanks, Melissa. Next time I'm going to put Gatorade mix in the pancakes...

I've been called a lot of names but no one ever called me nobody.

I did have a bad vision of those Swanson Hungry Man dinners I ate years ago. pehhh, pehhh.

The pancake sandwiches? I don't know? You have to be there I suppose.
