So tonight, with leftover grapefruit and orange pulp, I made citrus pancakes for my husband Pete. First I cooked bacon, so I could use the leftover grease to cook the pancakes in and conserve on butter. (I know that sounds incredibly unhealthy, but Pete loves it when I go on these "raw food feasts" because I can cook him whatever he wants as we are eating two different menus).
Then I came up with the following recipe:
3 cups of white flour
2 Tbsp sugar (grapefruit is tart!)
2 Tbsp baking powder
Mix together dry ingredients and add:
1 cup milk
Then I cooked about a 3rd of the batter in the bacon grease (I ended up having to use a little butter), which made 7 large pancakes, enough for Pete's dinner and breakfast tomorrow. Tomorrow I will make the rest of the pancakes and freeze them for later. I topped the pancakes with butter and homemade marmalade. Pete said they tasted fluffy and citrusy. I tried not to envy him.
Here is Pete's dinner on the left, and mine on the right:
Between us, we had a full-balanced meal.
Which dinner would you choose?
