Here, I started with the recipe for oatmeal pancakes with maple fruit from The Ultimate Diabetes Cookbook, but I can’t leave any recipe alone. Instead of putting sliced bananas on top with the berries, I mashed three to four bananas into the batter. I also skipped the sugar-free maple syrup in and on the pancakes. Instead, I microwaved frozen mixed berries and let the juice create a syrup and added a couple of slices of turkey bacon.
Once again, I’ve decided to join the Creative Every Day Challenge. I’m late, but what’s new? I realize this probably sounds like a pretty futile task for someone who never seems to finish any creative project. However, I like this challenge for a couple of reasons. First, creativity is defined broadly. It can include a photograph, recipe, poem or whatever I feel required my creativity. Second, I do not have to post every single day. I need to try to be creative every day, but I wont feel like a failure if I don’t get a post up here. Third, even if I’m only creative a few times in a week, the challenge reminds me of my goal to take more time for creativity. Finally, I think I will enjoy looking back on a long list of posts at the end of the year, evidencing how far I’ve come in my goal!
So, let’s see where the 2014 Challenge takes me.
