Pregret: the feeling of regretting something you’re about to do anyway. Example: I knew wearing my favorite yoga pants to spin class was a bad idea but did it anyway. The result: The ankle of the left leg got caught, wrapped around the pedal and ripped into my skin as well as ripped the pant leg of my favorite yoga pants. Hence pregret fulfilled. The even more annoying part was that while on the bike I considered folding up the pant legs, in fear of that exact thing occurring, yet I still did not act on it.
Ever since learning this term on Urban Dictionary, it has impacted my life. When I acknowledge a pregret, I try to act on it then instead of awaiting the inevitable. But sometimes I fall into it’s trap anyway every now and then. Most of the time it saves me from doing something stupid, so I felt the need to share this knowledge with you. My poor yoga pants, they were the comfiest pair I owned!
Alas, let’s talk about pancakes cause there’s nothing to pregret about those. I made pumpkin pancakes with this same recipe in the past. You can really substitute those 2 cups of moisture for any of your favorite purees of the same consistency. I tend to like applesauce personally, although I have neglected to share that version yet. But for now, I wanted to reveal a fun duo version combining both applesauce and sweet potato.
APPLESAUCE-SWEET POTATO PANCAKES
1 egg, beaten
1 cup milk
1 cup applesauce
1 cup mashed sweet potato
2 Tbsp unsalted butter, melted
2 cups Bisquick (or homemade pancake mix)
1/2 cup corn meal
2 Tbsp brown sugar
1 tsp cinnamon
1/2 tsp nutmeg
1/2 tsp allspice
- In a large bowl, mix together the egg, milk, applesauce, sweet potato and butter.
- In a separate bowl, combine the Bisquick, cornmeal, brown sugar, cinnamon, nutmeg and allspice, stir into the sweet potato mixture just enough to combine.
- Heat a lightly oiled griddle or frying pan over medium high heat. Scoop the batter onto the griddle, brown on both sides and serve hot.
