A batch of pancakes, 11 years in the making
There was a big moment in our home today. I made pancakes for our son, for the first time. Doing that has been a dream 11 years in the making.
I first started making scratch pancakes when I was the on-the-ground coordinator for my university's Washington D.C. summer internship program. I would make pancakes on Saturday morning for anyone wanting to get together. I've been doing it ever since.
It was that summer, 2007 in the George Washington University dormitories, that I imagined making pancakes for my future wife and children...someday.
Dozens of batches and thousands of pancakes later, that day was today. The reward was but a moment, but well worth 11 years of buildup.
