What's up Wednesday--election results and chocolate chip pancakes

Wanted to officially announce that I won the school board election!  Woohoo!  We were waiting at the court house for the results to come in from 7 to 9 p.m. last night.  When they finally did come in, we needed to celebrate, so we went to Sonic and got shakes. Yum!  yes, sadly we are missing one.  She was at play practice.  Thanks so much for your support!  I got tons of texts of congrats and even a call from my sweet aunt in Utah to congratulate me!  Thank you all!  That meant so much!  I take office July 1st.  Crazier--here we come (because we were already at crazy:)  So love this family of mine and their support!  Couldn't do it without them.

so onto the recipe I promised for today--chocolate chip pancakes.  This is one of Mr J's favorite things to make.  He does them all by himself which is really nice :)  He likes to make different shapes and letters when he cooks them.  These are extra yum.  Enjoy!

Mini Chocolate Chip Pancakes

2 1/2 cups flour
1 cup mini chocolate chips
1 Tbl baking powder
1/2 tsp salt
1 3/4 cups milk
2 eggs
1/3 cup oil
1/3 cup brown sugar

In a large bowl combine flour, chocolate chips, baking powder and salt.  In a medium bowl combine milk, eggs, oil and brown sugar then add to the flour mixture.  Stir until just moistened (batter may still be lumpy)

Heat griddle or skillet over medium heat.  Pour 1/4 cup of batter onto hot skillet and cook until bubbles begin to burst.  Turn, continue to cook for about 1 minute longer or until golden.  Repeat with remaining batter.

Makes about 1 1/2 dozen.
