My dad proclaimed, “I would like pancakes for breakfast.” However, I didn’t have any eggs on hand. I almost said, “Sorry, I don’t have all the ingredients,” but then I remembered the vegan flax egg trick.
To make a vegan flax egg, mix 1 tablespoon of ground flax with 3 tablespoons of water and let it stand for a few minutes. It ends up becoming gel-like and mimics an egg rather well, especially when you mix it into a batter.
Dad asks, I deliver!
I used the Hodgson Mill’s InstaBake mix to make yummy whole wheat pancakes, which I smothered in real maple syrup.
Plus, half an orange (Dad got the other half):
A light breakfast (for me… Dad said he was stuffed!) because I’m about to leave for a very quick run. I hope to squeeze in some exercise before I leave for Disney World! I’m picking two other other bloggers (Julie and Leslie) before a blogger get-together in honor of this weekend’s Princess Half Marathon.

Oh, and PS – The Hurt Locker is a great movie! A very manly war movie, but an excellent film. Highly recommend it!
