Lemon Blueberry Ricotta Pancakes


Lemon Blueberry Ricotta Pancakes


Good Morning! Well, I guess it is almost noon here but it has been a lazy morning for me.  Though I am itching to get outside... we will be in the 70's today and lots of sun!

The DIY Guy has many chores on his list today so I wanted to start him out with a good breakfast.  I'm not sure about you but our breakfasts tend to be quite boring.  I'm mostly a cereal girl (my fav being Bare Naked Triple Berry Crunch or Cheerios with banana).  He does the same with an occasional egg or bagel thrown in.  So going outside the box today! I think a similar recipe was made for me by the kids for Mother's Day a few years ago and I remembered how light and fluffy these were plus I love lemon and blueberries.

These really hit the spot today and now we are fueled and ready to go... let's see my list includes washing screens and windows, washing my car and finishing up the laundry.  I think lunch will be a delivery from Jimmy Johns and for dinner I have rib-eye steak planned for grilling!

I hope you have a great weekend!!
