Monday, Birthday, Pancakes

Happy Monday! It’s the start of the week when college football begins – you know I’m excited  :)


AND today is my sister’s birthday!!!


Happy Birthday Melissa!!! I love you and miss you and hope you have a great day  :) 


I get to see you in just a few weeks!


Since it’s Monday, my sister’s birthday, and I’m working from home today, I decided we needed some pancakes.


Okay, I need pancakes during the week more often.


I used a whole wheat pancake mix and made enough for Nick and me today, plus a few extras for this week.

And yes, that is an over easy egg on my pancakes  :)


If you like runny eggs and you have never tried this combination, you need to! Pancakes + runny egg + real maple syrup = unbeatable.


These short stack plus some strawberries and coffee make for a great way to start my day.

Off to work!


Do you like pancakes or waffles better?

    Happy birthday to your sister! :D

    Mmmm…pancakes or waffles? If French toast was an option, I’d pick that…but going to say pancakes? Oy. Bloggers are asking some hard questions today!

    Enjoy your Monday!

    Happy birthday to your sister. That’s a tough question…waffles have all those little spots to put things (chocolate chips!) but there’s nothing quite like a plate of pancakes. Enjoy your pancakes today!

    I wish your sister a happy birthday :) What a cool pancake creation, they look delicious! I think I prefer waffles better- I like the crispy texture over the fluffy texture of pancakes. Enjoy your day!

    Happy birthday to your sis! That is such a cute picture of the two of you.
    I’m going to have to vote for waffles, but your pictures of pancakes is making me rethink that… :)

    You’re killing me with your runny eggs and I don’t even like eggs that much! I’m a waffle girl but really, if someone made them for me, I’d eat either ;)

    Happy birthday Sister!

    I like pancakes for the simplicity but I love waffles for the nooks and crannies that my toppings can get into. Besides the OCD part of me and divide waffles easier :-)

    I might have to try that egg trick. I’ve gotten eggs with pancakes but never on them :-)

    I only like pankcakes with chocolate chips inside, but haven’t had some for 5 years! I do have a waffle maker too thatI got for a Wedding present, should probably make some yummy breakfast like yours soon!

    I think I like pancakes better, but I don’t have a waffle maker, so it’s a pretty big treat when I get to have them!

    Happy Birthday to your sister!!

    Happy birthday, Melissa! That’s an awesome photo.

    Eggs on pancakes is genius!!! I think I prefer pancakes to waffles. I stole bites of Ari’s choco-pb pancakes this morning… so deliciously indulgent!

    I’d have to say pancakes…blueberry, with crispy maple bacon on the side. A meal we have for dinner sometimes. Happy Birthday sister!!!
