smpx 37: dried fig

After a massive grocery shopping event on Saturday, we had several options for SMPX this week. We decided on fig pancakes. I don't think I've ever bought figs before, I know I haven't ever cooked with them. And really, I probably haven't eaten them outside of Fig Newtons and a couple fresh ones I picked off a tree at the beach last summer.

So I chopped up some dried figs and mixed them into the batter, and saved a couple for garnish on the top. These came out really well. The figs were sweet and chewy and were especially tasty with butter and maple syrup.

*** 1/2

We give dried fig pancakes 3.5/5 stars.

smpx 36: vanilla crepes

To make up for last week's really gross orange pancakes, we needed this week to be awesome. We've been wanting to do something besides our regular griddle pancakes, so we bought vanilla crepe mix and I cooked some up in a skillet.

Even added strawberries & whipped cream! We loved them. SMPX is back on track.

We give vanilla crepes 4.5/5 stars.

smpx 35: orange

Disgusting! Watery and gross. I don't think we thought this one through.

We give orange pancakes 1/5 stars. Next week: crepes!
