My Huckleberry Friends

I hate Spring cleaning. However, when I was straightening out the cupboards in the kitchen over the weekend, I came across a package of pancake mix that my BFF had brought back from her visit out West.  I had forgotten it was under there to tell the truth, but when I found it, suddenly I was craving pancakes. Of course, these were not your typical pancakes. This mix came from Glacier Park, Montana!!  These were Huckleberry pancakes...:)


The Pres was still sleeping yet I decided to start the griddle anyway. Putting the sausage on (although not my favorite, it is the Pres'), I prepared the batter as directed, adding the small glass jar of huckleberries to the mix. Instantly turning a very pale shade of blue, the bluish red jewels soon became coated with the lumpy batter.

It was the aroma that got me and before I knew it, I was spooning the thick batter onto the griddle, waiting anxiously for the tiny air bubbles to appear indicating "flip me."

Ahhhhhh, flipping and stacking, stacking and flipping, the pile on the plate got larger and larger and I just couldn't stand it anymore. Besides, it was almost 9:00 am and I was flipping starving!! "Honey, get your butt out of bed now or I'm going to eat these  pancakes without you!"

Stuffing my face with four of these luscious gems made me forget all about the rest of the stuff in that cabinet so I moved on. I hit the spice cabinet next. It was a mess!!! Hardly anything was in alphabetical order anymore....yes, you read correctly...alphabetical order.

just seeing, saying and sharing...

Oh yum. Those look so good. My spice cabinet isn't in alphabetical order but I do try and keep them lined up all nice and neat. Wade however makes a mess out of it every time he goes in there

You lucky girl. Now I'm tasting those Montana huckleberries. Have you ever had them in a milk shake? Heaven through a straw. Just gotta fight the bears to get to them! :)

Yummy! They look delicious and so fluffy. I haven't made pancakes this spring as we have cut back on our carb intake, but I miss them. Enjoy the day!

I love great surprises like that!

If you visit Montana, you will be welcomed because it's all about the huckleberries!

Glad y'all liked the pancakes!

The song, Moon River, talks about huckleberry friend. It's a favorite song of mine with much meaning, so when I saw your post, huckleberry friend, I had to rush right over. : ) Thanks for the post today.

Have a nice weekend.
