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?

  1. 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!

  2. Happy Birthday to your sister! Isn’t she lucky to share a birthday with Rose!?!?!


    Love the Monday pancakes.

  3. 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!

  4. Happy birthday to your sis! And I’m very intrigued by this whole eggs & pancakes business…

  5. 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!

  6. i am going to have to try that with my pancakes!!

    happy bday to your sister :)

  7. Happy Birthday, Brandi’s Sister!!!

    I am a pancake girl, for sure! Though, I do love a good belgium waffle from time to time.

  8. Happy Birthday to your SISTER! :)

    I don’t think i can choose which i like better. i do love me some pancakes, but i LOVE waffles as well. as kids my mom used to make Belgium waffles and i just remember them being so huge and that was what i liked about it!!!!

    have an awesome day workin from home

  9. 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… :)


    I’m a waffle gal.

  11. 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 ;)


  12. 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 :-)

  13. 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!

  14. pannnncakes!!!

    and happy bday to your sister!!!

  15. 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!!

  16. 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!

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

  18. I am a waffle lover at heart, and don’t even like runny eggs, but that photo is beautiful!!

  19. Pancakes ALL the way! And that looks like an amazing combo that I need to try!!! Wowzers.

  20. happy birthday to melissa!

    I love that you put eggs over everything!

  21. oh my what a great idea! add in some turkey sausage and you have a healthy homeade mcgriddle… o.O YUM…

  22. Happy Birthday to your sister!!!

    Definitely waffles, and Belgian waffles at that!

  23. Wow those pancakes look AWESOME

  24. You and your sister=adorable!! I wish I had a sister sometimes!

    Ooo yummy pancakes! I have a pancake post planned for Friday–staaaay tuned :-)

  25. woah – you are BLOWING MY MIND with that egg on top of pancake!

  26. ohhhh runny egg yolks are what life is all about ;) okay, maybe not — but at least what breakfast is all about!

  27. You know I would love to see what you post about football!!! Hope all is going well!!! I leave for Japan Sept 28th!!!
