Last weekend, my hubby and I drove to Minneapolis for an evening of outstanding comedy with Jim Gaffigan. We both love comedians and it was wonderful being able to walk in the doors of the Orpheum theater and not have to worry about the content of his show. I wish more comedians would follow Jim’s example and create shows that are extremely smart without being offensive. If you haven’t read his book “Dad is Fat” yet, you are missing out on the most honest book on parenting I have ever read.
As a food blogger, I was surprised and thrilled when his whole show revolved around food. Who knew I would pee my pants from laughing so hard at jokes about his hatred of fish? Seriously.
Mr. Gaffigan would love these pancakes. Not a trace of fish to be found in them. Do you think I could convince him and his family to swing by one Saturday morning for a Jones family breakfast? Maybe a breakfast with all six of our crazy kiddos would convince him that life with five kids is actually quite calm.
These pancakes surprised me a bit when I first tasted them. They were quite tart compared to what I was expecting, but once I poured on that amazing strawberry syrup, they were 100% completely perfect. Not too sweet and balanced perfectly with that great lemony tartness. My kids RAVED about them and I’m sure I will be making them a few more times before strawberries go out of season again!
