In all honesty, I hate election time. Like, really, really hate it.
I’m so tired of hearing all the negative set to patriotic music. For pete’s sake.
I’d rather just hear each candidate say all their nasty things set to silence. That would suit me just fine.
No need to toy with my emotions. I can make a grown-up decision all by myself without the music, thankyouverymuch.
My distaste for the current political climate drives my parents nuts. My dad thinks I’m a communist.
(er…. I’m totally not. Just to set the record straight. You know… in case we ever circle back that route again.)
My mom… well, her heaviest accusation against me is that I’m not in love with the Batman trilogy.
Apparently that’s plenty grounds for unpatriotism in our family. I never got the memo.
But if we’re talkin’ movies…
You know what I think is unpatriotic?? That Captain America doesn’t get the girl in the end of the movie.
Well, really, more like the girl doesn’t get Captain America. ‘Cause he makes it to the future and stuff, right? But, oh no! Not her. Nope, she lives her whole life knowing the man she loved plunged himself to an arctic death.
And she has to somehow move past that?
What kind of cinematic patriotism is that????
(I may or may not be crying through the ending of that movie as I’m writing this post.…)
Movies and politics aside, I’m not sure it get much more patriotic than these Banana Pancakes.
Oh, with Reese’s Cups in them. Topped with caramel sundae sauce.
Sounds American to me… although I cry at the end of these too ;)
Notes about this recipe:
Start with 1 1/4 cups flour. If you find the batter is too runny, add more flour by 1/4 cups until you’ve reached the perfect pancake consistency.
