Banananananana! Na! Na!
I had one of those mornings last week. So I made pancakes.
I just happened to have flour (ok, so that’s not surprising– I always have flour), eggs, sugar, etc. Actually what I did have that I don’t always have was milk.
Milk. This is important, people. My lecture of the day.
My doctor told me that women are much more susceptible to osteoporosis (the loss of calcium from the bones) than men because of our monthly gift from nature (oh joy). And then he went on to tell me that Asian women– especially ones of the smaller, more petite variety– are even more susceptible than usual. So on my very first appointment with him, he recommended that if I wasn’t drinking milk regularly to go out and buy calcium tablets and eat them twice a day.
Yessir, I see your call and raise!
I one-upped him.
How? I started drinking milk again. I hated drinking milk as a kid, and the only reason I drank it every day for breakfast was because my mother forced me. I developed a technique of chugging the entire glass within ten seconds while holding my breath so I wouldn’t have to taste it. Childish, I know.
Then, when I ran off to college, I stopped drinking milk altogether. I disliked American soy milk, and regular milk was just too gross by my standards. So for half a decade I avoided drinking milk like the plague.
But when the doctor orders more calcium in my diet, I heed his call. And so now I drink milk again.
I feel proud.
SO DRINK YOUR MILK, PEOPLE!
That being said, if you’re interested in making these pancakes, I’ve made them before, and the recipe is here: Banana Pancaker. I made this batch with a little bit of rice flour added in, but I don’t think there was enough to make a difference.
