purple pancakes

Sometimes we just need someone to intervene in the midst of a rough day. Well, at least I do. One of my sweet friends decided I didn't seem quite right over this past week and invited herself over yesterday.

It was the best of times. We cleaned and baked and played and made the most purplicious pancakes a person could ever want. It was actually HRH {D}'s idea to spice them up, and she executed the plan to exactness.

{D} started off by putting a few drops at a time (several times) of purple food coloring, with me giving up and squirting the container as hard as I could into the bowl. We ended up with a shade of purpleness so outrageously loud and fabulous! And they even tasted good.

Moral of the story:
To add color to life, spend time with friends and use LOTS of artificial food dye.

  1. I love the moral of this story, "To add color to life, spend time with friends and use LOTS of artificial food dye." I smiled while reading this slice.

  2. Straight away I thought of the poem about wearing purple and NOT growing old gracefully - wish I could remember more about it than that!

    1. If you can't remember more, make up your own poem! It sounds like you got a spark of inspiration going there. Thank you for stopping by my purple niche.

  3. I love pancakes and I love the color purple. I never thought about combining the two! This is an awesome idea. I hope they tasted as good as they look! :)

    1. You got the point of my entire story: the gift of time. I described how we spent it and a product of it, but it all boils down to the gift. Thank you for joining the conversation. I hope you visit again soon.

  9. Oh I love it! It's all about adding joy to our days and for me too, a punch of colour can perk me up, big time, but I'm all about pink and lime green. No idea why, just love 'em!
    Glad I hopped over from Bloggy Moms :)

  10. This is great! It is funny that kids are more likely to eat brightly colored things too. Need to try this mine... if i can figure out how to dye broccoli purple.

    And did you know it is #purpleday for epilepsy awareness? As a mama of a child who had epilepsy, this makes me smile too, even if it is a coincidence! :)
