Bring a lil’ Carrot Cake into your Life!~

23 Jul

Fridays are great aren’t they? Today Court and I were tired, we did not even get up till like 8:30 which felt really late compared to usual.  I was actually up before Court, but then like the nice little sis I am, I woke her up gently with “Good morning Sunshine, Let’s make Pancakes.” LOL. She was all “Whitney I’m tired.” But then I went downstairs started the pot of coffee and as soon as I went back up she was awake. After much debate on which pancakes to make, I came up with Carrot Cake Pancakes. The idea was genius, and here is how they turned out:   



Serves 2: Makes 7 pancakes(3 1/2 each)~ 1/4 cup mix per pancake 

  1/2 cup Whole Wheat Flour
  1/3 cup Old Fashioned Oats
  1/4 tsp Baking Soda
  1 tsp Cinnamon
  1/4 tsp Nutmeg
  1 tbsp Brown Sugar
  1/4 cup Shredded carrots
  2 tbsp Raisins
  1/2 cup Unsweetened Almond Milk
  1/4 cup Egg White
  2 tbsp Walnuts
  2 Pineapple Ring Slices

  When Ashley and our mom got off work, we all did the Fire 55 EZ class, and it was a fun sweaty mess. After that went to BIG 5 to look for some discounted Hiking boots. If you have not been there in a while, Go! They have got some killer deals on all Fitness equipment. It is like a TJMAXX for Excercise gear. Awesome 🙂 On monday all of us girls are going on a long 8 hour hike. Yikes! Girl’s gotta be prepared for something like that, so some new shoes were in desperate need. Dinner was simply leftovers from lastnight. We were good girlies, and ate the old food first instead of out tonight. Also, btw we searched high and low for the Carrot Cake Larabars today, and still no luck at all, even Whole foods had none!  Court and I have really wanted to go see Ramona and Beesuas. IDK how you spell that. lol. Any who did it come out today? 

Our past with Cottage Cheese has not been a positive one, but we have decided to give it another go. Does anyone have a great recipe or favorite way to use Cottage cheese? Also, share your best and favorite pancake recipes. Perhaps we will make them next Friday.  



 For our sixteenth birthday, I threw a big surprise Party for Court with all of our BFF’s. It was 80’s themed, and everyone dressed up. We did karaoke, watched 16 candles, and even the cake was some old school records. Here is a pic from that night: 





 Ha ha, fun times! Well TTYL 🙂
