MDon's Pancakes and the Guac that Rocks!
So I love making breakfast meals. I think there is a reason why they say breakfast is the most important meal of the day - because it tastes the best! Pancakes are one of the breakfast foods that Jeff loves, so I've tried several varying recipes. However, I could never get more of a response from Jeff than "Yeah...they're good." (Which we all know really means...they just taste like normal pancakes.) No one wants to just make normal tasting pancakes. BORING. So we found out the recipe to Jeff's favorite pancakes - McDonald's. I didn't believe him that they tasted better until we made them and they totally do! The secret ingredient is...SPRITE! Weird, huh?
We have also been obsessed with Chipotle's guac. If you haven't ever had it...well you're missing out on some pretty awesome guacamole. Nothing else at Chipotle is fabulous enough to make us crave it, but that guac...mmmm, delicious. We found the recipe for that too! The secret with their guac is you don't put any tomatoes in it (like a lot of the recipes on The Food Network...tomatoes, bleh). So we made that too and let's just say we will be having the guac that rocks for a long, long, long time.
If you want to be as cool as us, you can make the same guac too.
1/2 of a red onion
1/2 of a lime (juiced)
1/2 teaspoon salt
(And a little lemon juice, but not a lot. Just mix it all together in a food processor. It's super easy.)
