Yesterday there was a Snow Day! It was such a blessing because going to school for 5 consecutive days is such a struggle. I woke up and nobody was home (also a blessing), but there was almost no food in my house because my parents always forget to go grocery shopping.Image from: https://www.channel3000.com/madison-magazine/opinion/john-roach/roach-madisons-20-inch-snow-day/656385170#%5B/caption%5D
I looked up pancake recipes online because I had all the basic cooking ingredients (sugar, flour, etc.). I found a recipe for cinnamon roll pancakes, so I made them and they were so good. They are really thick and filling, so you can’t eat too many of them. Here is the recipe I used: https://therecipecritic.com/cinnamon-roll-pancakes/. I would definitely recommend making these.
In other news, I’m a huge tea fan right now. I went to a friends house a few days ago, and her dad made Indian style chai tea. It was so good. I have been trying to recreate it ever since. I haven’t made it quite the same, but I have made my own creation now. I use Bigelow Vanilla Chai Tea. Then I add ginger powder and cinnamon to the pot of tea. After that, I put sweetened condensed milk in my cup of tea. What I make isn’t exactly what I was originally going for, but I like it.
P.S. I have now been told that the Indian chai tea uses cardamom and not cinnamon. I haven’t made any with cardamom yet because haven’t seen at the grocery store.
