I totally slacked on uploading my pictures these last two weeks and managed to accumulate 116. Granted I was trying to get some real pretty pictures for a printout I was doing, but still that's a daunting amount of pictures to go through. This resulted in my procrastinating uploading them and thus missing out on the deadline for a contest that was hosted by Miss Chocolate Covered Katie. Since I made them and took pictures though I might as well share.
The contest was to make pancake roll ups. Check out Katies posts for some unbelievably yummy looking versions; especially these blueberry ones. Being the odd duck that I am I wanted to do something different. And different is definitely what I got.
First I made pancakes (I believe they were sweet potato pancakes but at this point who can remember details like that?)
Then I spread them with some of the Chocolate Spread from Love Street Living that I purchased at a discount with samples thanks again to Katie. After that I rolled them with some odd fillings.
And sprinkled them with shredded coconut. They may look beautiful, and they may have tasted alright, but they were nothing like I expected.
But what can you really expect when you stuff your pancakes with pineapple or even better, beets?
Definitely not a recipe for the history books in this one. But a fun experience none the less.
