Pancakes for Lunch?

So today the girls and I went visiting teaching with my awesome companion Aimee. I have the 2 kids, and she is a trooper, hauling 3 of her 4.
We started out good, arriving on time (10:00), but chatted a little too long, so left a little late. Same with our second visit, so by the time we reached our third and final destination, it was 11:30, the kids were done with travelling from house to house and starting to get hungry.
The third house we were at is a good friend of Aimee's, and they go running every Saturday morning together. Since Aimee's husband was with mine at a winter camp this last Saturday, her friend's husband watched all 7 of the kids. He apparently made them waffles, which Aimee's almost 2-year old Lucee calls pancakes.
Poor little Lucee just kept crying "pancakes Mommy, pancakes" - thinking that since she was at the Jensons, she was going to get some, which sadly, she was not.
So then Lauren starts on the "pancakes, Mommy, pancakes" bandwagon (my daughter, the follower). So when we got home at 12:00, I made her pancakes for lunch.
It took a while, because I do not make pancakes from a mix. That is strictly for camping, and for the record, when I go camping, I pre-make my pancake dry ingredients so all I have to do is add milk, an egg, and oil. No Bisquick in this house (or this trailer), thank you very much. But if I ever were to make pancakes from a mix, it would only be while camping, that is the only excuse in my book.
Lauren helped me mix it all together, and she ate 2 - which made me extremely happy because she is such a picky eater. I didn't want pancakes for my lunch, so I made the rest and put them in little baggies in the freezer - great in the toaster actually. Waste not, want not!
Just wanted to throw this little picture of B in here - she's so cute!!!!

I don't know how to make pancakes from scratch so until you share your recipe I'll have to stick w/ the premade mix. I do add stuff in mine as well, but I know it's not the same!

Lo is so cute. I love that she wanted pancakes for lunch. You're a good mom to always make them from scratch - I totally use the mix!
