Low-Carb Cottage Cheese Pancakes

I'm giving my body a break from wheat for a while, so I've been searching out lots of wheat-free recipes. I made these delicious pancakes for lunch today. The batter is thin, so they turn out almost crepe-like. If you leave out the stevia (and vanilla and cinnamon, updated 3/2), I think they could also be a great "wrap" to hold sandwich fillings, but I haven't tried that yet.

4 eggs
1 cup cottage cheese
1 tablespoon butter, melted
1/2 teaspoon vanilla
1/4 cup gluten-free flour mixture (I used Bob's Red Mill gluten-free all purpose baking flour)
1/2 teaspoon baking powder
approximately 1/8 teaspoon stevia powder (or 2 1/2 teaspoons sugar)
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon cinnamon

Blend all ingredients in blender for 10-15 seconds. Cook on lightly greased moderately-hot skillet, flipping once, until both sides are lightly browned.

D.L.F. was still talking to himself quite a while after we put him to bed tonight, so while I continued practicing my harp in the living room, T went into D.L.F.'s room to check on him.

"Mama is playing her heart!" D.L.F. announced.

We Can Talk to God About Anything, Right?

This morning I finished praying before D.L.F. ate his breakfast, and he looked like he wanted to say something.

"Go ahead," I prompted.

"And please help Papa to throw the trash in the dumpster!" D.L.F. prayed. (A few minutes earlier D.L.F. had put a piece of lint in the garbage can, and I guess he decided it was full enough to go out!)
