You know what's even more adorable than teenage boys? Pretty much anything.
Also, the teenage girls who insist on cooking for them. As a role model for these young women, I can't really say that I approve.
As the mother running Camp Eat-Around-the-Clock for Teenage Boys, it is going to the top of my list of Things to Love About 17-Year-Old Boys.
Best Chocolate Chip Pancake Recipe Ever:
1 17-year-old girl from across the street
1 bag of chocolate chips
Send bag of chocolate chips across the street with teenage boy. Wait approximately half an hour.
Open door to teenage girl bearing giant plate of chocolate chip pancakes, which you will not even have to wash.

Teen summer camp opens to mixed reviews
So it's not a regular occurrence that neighbors are making you breakfast? If you're lucky, you'll get the best burgers and other meals ever, which means that I really need to be sending grocery money across the street.

Weirdly, it only seems to happen when the house is full of floppy-haired teenage Florida boys. And I supply the ingredients.
It's the least I can do. Though I am certainly willing to do less.
So feel free to send more grocery money.

Would that be a chocolate chip off the old block?
Get it? Chip off the old block?
Ah Fuck it, I'm going to bed.

Who can say anymore? We have been mixing these children up since they were babies.

Now THIS is a recipe I can get behind. It's a shame I'm apparently going to have to wait 9 years before undertaking it. At least that will give me time to make friends with someone in FL who can send her sons up to visit mine.
I have to say, this is sounding like a pretty complex recipe for one that claims to be so easy.

I can send you a couple of teenage boys right away. All you need is a supply of Pop-Tarts, an Xbox and a set of car keys.
Your house will be filled with teenage girls and cupcakes in no time at all.

Interesting...How about blueberry or raspberry pancakes?
