My "I Got Canned" Pancakes

Ok, ok, they aren't my pancakes. (Though you probably guessed that.) Sure, I made them, but the lovely Kickpleat at Everybody Likes Sandwiches provided the recipe. She only posted about them a few days ago, so I won't totally steal them. Click through to her site, you won't regret it.

These pancakes are delightful little things. I've really been into citrus zest lately... the luscious, clean scent and flavor really speaks to me. I know this is true for the rest of you, too, I think I just wasn't listening before. The pancakes are dainty and fresh, and just the thing to start me on the first day of the rest of my life. I topped them with a little butter and maple syrup, but then I had more un-topped, and I can't decide which way I like better. I'll def. have to make these again... ya know, for research.

I got canned, you ask? Sortof. I got the "you aren't a good fit with our firm" talk yesterday, and I have 30 days to find a new job. I knew I wasn't a good fit for the firm. Well, moreso, I knew the firm wasn't a good fit for me. At all. But this happening isn't an altogether bad thing. I've been miserable there for a long time, which has seeped into the other areas of my life (I've been totally disinterested in cooking and blogging, for one, and I LOVE both!!), so I feel free now. Liberated.

Check back in with me in 30 days, and we'll see if I feel the same way. :)

You know it's corny, but it really does seem that when one door closes, another one opens.

Hmmm, I wish they would have that talk with me at work - I could definitely use a change. But I guess that would have happened before 3 years passed....Maybe I need some of those pancakes to make me feel better!!
