It's almost the weekend and it's time to make a wonderful breakfast.
Recently MGG and I took a little day trip and started off going up the coast, stopping along the way for breakfast and one of our favorite places. A quaint little house that's been turned into an outstanding eatery, has people lined up to taste their breakfast specialties.
One of my favorite breakfast items are pancakes. I remember when I was young I used to always get dollar pancakes. I felt so special with all those little bitty cute pancakes on my plate staring back at me! I still love them. Unfortunately, you don't see them often, but I still love regular pancakes too!
So I decided on pancakes, he had a monstrous omelet. The special pancake on the menu was a Cinnamon Oat Pancake. HEAVEN! I love oatmeal in my pancakes. It makes them so tender and moist. If you haven't had an oatmeal pancake you have to try one...really!
These were just perfect little brown pancakes with cinnamon mixed in. HEAVEN again! I was in love. I tell you, i n l o v e .
These are my version of this fabulous pancake. And if I do say so myself they are the bomb! Just as good as the little house pancake breakfast! So make some for your family this weekend. You don't need a celebration for pancakes. The weekend is celebration enough!
