Have a great Weekend!

Whats going on this weekend in your neck of the woods?
Dave and I have a busy weekend. And after this week's white out I am looking forward to 
getting out and about. I am busy dancing around the house preparing for Dave's parents to arrive. 
We are serving Brunch today and on the Menu are Lemon Ricotta Pancakes (Yum), a fresh citrus salad and hot coffee (of corse):

Lemon Ricotta Pancakes
This recipe is adapted from the Alberta Egg Producers.
4 eggs, separated
1 tub (250 grams) or 1 cup (250 ml) ricotta cheese
3 tbsp (50 ml) sugar
½cup (125 ml) all-purpose flour
zest of one lemon
2 tbsp (25 ml) butter
2 cups (500 ml) strawberries, diced
sugar to taste

In a large mixing bowl, whisk egg yolks, ricotta cheese, sugar, flour and lemon zest.
In another bowl, whip egg whites with a mixer until glossy peaks form. Stir about one-quarter of the whites into the ricotta mixture, then fold in the remaining whites gently.
Melt butter in pan over medium heat, drop batter on using small ladle or large spoon. I used a ¼-cup (50-ml) measure.) Flatten slightly, then let cook for about two minutes per side until lightly browned. Top with macerated strawberries. (I know...yum) via
Than its off to DC to mill around at a museum or two and grab some dinner and than we see STOMP. 
Its in DC this weekend and we are so excited!
I hope your weekend is full of adventure, or relaxation, whatever you require...
Until Monday {xox}
