My New Addiction - Clickity Clickity Pancakes

If you're a Family Guy fan, you get the title. As seen on my menu plan, I am ADDICTED to pancakes right now. I've never even liked pancakes and now I want them ALL the time. With chocolate chips. And peanut butter. And syrup. And fruit. And peanut butter granola.

I use just add water pancake mix, that by accident is vegan. I add in chocolate and make the pancakes. I go for two 4 inch pancakes. With chocolate chips they come out to 4p+.

I smear on just enough peanut butter. 2 tablespoons is FIVE Weight Watchers Plus points. I try to use 3/4 T for 1p+. I'm up to 5p+ now.

A drizzle of sugar free syrup. You can use a whole serving for 1p+. A whole banana minus the icky end for FREE. A sprinkle of organic pb granola for 1p+.

And this deliciousness is 7p+. Make sure you calculate as you go, as different brands can be more or less points.

It MELTS in your mouth. Warm and chocolatey. Sweet and sticky. OMG. THE BEST breakfast either, and easily vegan as long as you watch your pancake mix and your chocolate.

My Plum Paper Meal Planner Arrived & I Arc'd It!

Finally my Plum Paper Designs Meal Planner arrived. I ordered July 28, 2015 and it arrived September 3, 2015. I ordered it unpunched and uncoiled, with a blog section, bill pay section, and something else extra that is slipping my mind right now. I also upgraded for 2 day shipping.

I knew that I wanted to arc this bad boy, aka make it discbound, which is why I skipped the coiled and pre-punched holes. It arrived loose, the hubby punched it, and I put it on Staples M Arc discs.
Oh and that is NOT the original cover that came with it. I designed this one inside and out on Photoshop, printed it at Staples for less then $5, and then laminated it here at home.

On the inside I put some money savings challenges and my FAV Buddha pic. Love that hibiscus. Added an Arc sticky note clip in thingy that was a few dollars at Staples and some butterfly stickers.

On the back inside cover I put some relaxation tips and a pic I took last week of a turtle. This cover is 100% me, strawberry print and all.
