    My wife is driving me nuts!!

    Without a doubt, I do the majority of the cooking in the house; however, Im not very good at making breakfast. This morning my wife nags at me telling me I should go down and make breakfast. So I go down and I make pancakes for probably the second time in my life. I read the directions, I put it on the griddle, set the timer, flip, and she says that theyre not the right consistency.

    Also, she thinks its weird to put peanut butter on her pancakes. Weve been married for 15 years and Im about to throw in the towel.

    If Mrs. S wants me to fix breakfast for her, she knows she has to give me something first. She always makes breakfast.

    Pancakes - Follow the directions on the box for your batter, err on the side of thicker batter than thinner. Griddle temperature medium. Slowly pour batter on to griddle. Wait for airhole bubbles to start appearing. If you want crisp edges on your pancakes, wait a little longer after the air holes appear before flipping. Flip pancakes. Remove after about a minute of cooking after flipping.

    If you can’t even cook pancakes I understand her frustration.

    Too bad Izzy’s in Ft.Wright closed down. You would be surprised how much mileage their breakfast pastrami burrito would get you. Not speaking from personal experience of course because Mrs. S. And I like cereal.

    Just tell her to put syrup on her pancakes instead of peanut butter and call it a day, PP1.
