Great Minds Think Alike

Had a little scare this week and ended up in the emergency room. Turns out my overindulgence on Valentines day gave me a gas bubble the size of Texas. The bubble in turn mimicked a heart attack. After a night in the coronary care unit, a treadmill test and a whole bunch of needles I find my heart is strong. Good news to say the least.
While in the hospital my wife and friends brought me a boatload of healthy living magazines thinking I might get the hint. Upon my escape from the hospital I stopped at Trader Joe's and picked up some fruits and veg. One of the articles I read mentioned the health benefits of blueberries so I bought a couple of boxes. It turns out my wife had read the same article and had bought two boxes as well. What you going to do with all those blueberries? Let's make pancakes.
I would have made good old Krusteaz but my wife adapted the recipe from the Joy of Cooking. In my mind the best way to add blueberries to pancakes is push them into the batter after you put it on the griddle. When you flip them the berries heat, burst open and ooze out the top. Yummy stuff!
Here's to healthy living.

Um, Greg? (Tap, tap, tap... is this thing on?)
You can just eat the blueberries. No pancakes. No butter. No gluten.
Fruit. Good.
(Glad you're healthy!!!)

CC-No butter was injured in this recipe.Normally I would have a couple of links and some bacon so this is improvement.
Anna-Thanks for checking in.With the aid of my staff of IT people I've managed to add your site link.
