Summer officially ended this week. However, the weather suddenly turned warmer as the seasons changed.
Right now it's about 80 degrees and a bit humid. I'm not complaining. Not at all. Tomorrow the temperature is supposed to drop down to the low 60's. Although I'll be on my way to San Francisco, where it's supposed to be a bit warmer.
Last week the weather felt like fall. The leaves are changing colors. Mornings have been brisk. A serious chill permeates the night and early morning air. I took out a wool blanket and even put on the heat one night.
Plus I made pancakes one morning. Nothing says pancakes like a cold morning. I've found that I'm generally not a huge fan of buckwheat flour. The taste is a bit severe to me. But I think I found a way to play with it. I used a bit less than normally called for and added brown sugar. These pancakes were great!
I thought that I'd never buy buckwheat flour again, but I think I changed my mind. These pancakes will go into the regular cold morning breakfast rotation.
Well, I didn't leave my heart in San Francisco, but I'm looking forward to my return visit. There are so many activities lined up for BlogHer Food '09. I'm going to have to load up on coffee and ignore the jet lag.
Blueberry Buckwheat Pancakes
