Buttermilk Syrup & Les Miserables

A little bit of my Gluten Free German Pancake. YUMMO- Gluten Free german pancakes sure do react differently than regular ones, but they are still pretty tasty. Especially when you put my homemade buttermilk syrup and chopped pecans ontop! Here is the recipe:

Buttermilk Syrup

1 cup butter
1 cup sugar (OR 3/4 cup agave)
1/2 cup buttermilk
1 tsp vanilla
1/2 tsp baking soda

Put butter, sugar, buttermilk into pot and stir until it boils. Remove from heat and add vanilla and baking soda. 

I have to tell you...this is the best syrup I've ever tasted in my LIFE. Oh, it's really good. 

So I'm nearing the halfway mark in Les Miserables (as shown in the pic above). It's a pretty great book so far! It takes a while to read it just because the language can be pretty different at times. However, there are also moments where you are like, "What the heck! How will he get out of this one!" and you want to read read read till you find out what happens. Also, this book makes me want to be a good person. I like that.

That's what I remember when Greg was talking about his readings. Thinking, "I need to be like that." Such inspiring characters. I'm curious about that syrup. Pretty simple, and I hate heating up my maple syrup. Honestly, I don't and hope my pancakes will heat it up, but the reverse happens and cold soggy pancakes- not ideal.


Dad said President Kimball said after the scriptures Les Miserables is his favorite book because it has so many aspects of the gospel in it, repentence, forgiveness, compassion, mercy. pretty cool huh?
