Blueberry Buttermilk Pancakes

So my weekend started off wonderful... took off early from work on Friday, woke up early Saturday to take my car in for an oil change
and get my headlight bulb replaced, went to visit my parents and hung out with my mom, got a really cool tote bag from the thrift store for 86 cents (!) and then went back to LA and hung out with Jason. We both wanted mexican food for dinner at this place that we haven't been to for awhile, got in without any wait... then we started heading home at got hit by a car! Fun. No one was hurt and it was over pretty quickly, but still... pretty lame. We were just sitting at a stoplight and out of nowhere- crash.

Anyhow, what does this have to do with my baking blog? Basically I just wanted today, Sunday, to be a nice and comforting day. And the best way to start off any nice and comforting day is with silver dollar sized blueberry buttermilk pancakes, a side of berries and some fresh brewed coffee. Sounds inviting, doesn't it? It was. And it helped to start the day off on a better foot.

I used the All Recipes site again for my recipe, and these turned out to be some pretty darn good pancakes.
