Pancakes Make it Better

Chloe and the Red Squirrel

Yesterday was a sad day. I was diligently plugging away at work when one of the neighbor cats took the liberty of snatching up our favorite squirrel friend. The little red squirrel. It broke our hearts to see a friend be snatched up by a domesticated fur ball. A memory plays in my mind, the last time I saw our little friend.

The bastards

I felt powerless that there was nothing I could have done to prevent this. My partner was crushed, so I made my way to the kitchen to prep some comfort food. This event took me to the cookbook NYC Vegan’s recipe for Diner-Style Pancakes, which were delightful and not too difficult to make.

Liquid at rest

With a few lumps in my batter, and a hole in my heart 🐿, I preheated the skillet to 350 and grabbed my 1/4 measuring cup. Once preheated, I poured the batter and sprinkled mini chocolate chips over the top. The pancakes turned out perfect. It was exactly what we needed to get through the tragedy of losing a squirrel friend.

Comfort food is necessary during these difficult times. We’ll miss you little squirrel friend. These flapjacks are for you. ❤️

I'm Sean Kilby and I'm from North Carolina I grew up with a great passion for music, arts, books, swimming, biking, soccer, Magic the Gathering, travel, electronic arts, and theme parks (Not Sea Parks). 5 ish years ago I started the process of moving away from animal based foods, now I'm completely vegan for about 2-3 years. I've studied nutrition by reading books, websites, and articles such as Thrive and Bigger, Leaner, Stronger (not a vegan guide). I took the approach of a plant based vegan diet so I didn't have to sustain myself by using an animal product for sustenance. I also do a lot of thought exercises and self reflection, meditation, and mindfulness to navigate through the experiences of life. I place these thoughts on this blog to have a good conversation with myself and others. The biggest and most difficult conversation that is taking place is that the global temperatures are dramatically increasing, putting our global ecosystem in danger due to methane gas from animal agriculture. The hardest part was I had lost the vision to improve the future. My work is ever changing, but setting clear goals have brought me to where I am today. Taking up the e-quill to tell a story.
