First up, I want to share something completely stupid I did this morning. I made oatmeal pancakes just for myself. I halved the 2 person recipe. At least, I halved everything up until the last 2 ingredients - oatmeal and flour - then became distracted and threw in double the amount needed of each. The batter was crazy thick, but I had never tried the recipe before and assumed it was just supposed to be that way.
