School started last Monday and I LOVE all my classes. Last semester I didn't have all good teachers and it made me kind of bummed about school. I was not as excited about things because none of the subjects were being taught in the greatest of ways. This semester, all my teachers are freaking outstanding. I have already learned so much and the way they all teach makes it stick in my brain! They love teaching and they love the subjects they are teaching. But, this week was still crazy and until I figure things out, like what to bring for quick lunches, where I want to study, and how to keep my house clean, things will be crazy. I'm taking this week to try and sort that stuff out, though, so hopefully everything will be running smoothly by the weekend.
Saturday I started my day off with a cup of tea, a can of coconut water, and an apple. I lounged on the couch, read some blogs, and read part of the book I'm reading for Sara's book club, Sarah's Key. So far I am in love with the book and don't want to put it down! I will definitely be finishing it by the end of the week.
Once I realized I was wasting away on the couch and was starving, I meandered into the kitchen to make some grain free/dairy free/paleo pancakes. I had to do some dishes first, so I got some strawberries out to snack on. I realized they would be much better a little sweeter and on top of pancakes, so I quickly diced two of them up and poured half a tablespoon of pure maple syrup on them to marinate while I did dishes.
I finished the dishes and started the pancakes, a recipe I had never tried before from Guilty Kitchen.
They turned out great!
They weren't sweet, so the added strawberries soaked in maple syrup and a spoonful of coconut fat were a perfect addition. The colors also scream summer to me, which I love.
Are you in school this semester and have a crazy schedule? Or just a crazy schedule in general?
