Mama in the City

A blog about raising my family in downtown Vancouver

Pancakes! Yes please!

One of my favorite thing to eat is pancakes. If I go out for breakfast I often order a stack of pancakes and seriously love each fluffy bite. I like them hot and in stacks of three with blueberry sauce on the side. I like the ones at the local greasy spoon and I like the lemon and ricotta ones at Bacchus Bistro downtown.

If it is my birthday or a special occasion, I will order pancakes. Sometimes I try to be healthy and order the fruit plate but end up taking one of my husbands pancakes. You can tell that I am plotting this pancake theft in the picture. I think I had 1.5 of those delicious room service pancakes. Yum!

There is something about pancakes that make me happy. Maybe it is because they are simple and delicious and easy to make? Pancakes were the first real food that I learned how to cook as a child and I remember on a few occasions whipping up a batch for my family starting as early as in grade 6. My son also loves to devour pancakes as much as I do and this makes me smile. What child doesn't love pancakes?

I enjoy this Pancake Love print by juxtaposeddesign available on Etsy. It captures my thoughts exactly!

Maybe tomorrow will be a pancake morning. What about in your house?

I'm more of a french toast girl but my little girl adores them and I make sure to make chocolate chip ones for her every weekend!

Every Sunday in our house is buttermilk pancake day! In October we do pumpkin pancakes. I think you have to be suspicious of people who don't like pancakes. :o)

ps. I'm doing my part and voting daily!

Just for the record: We totally had pancakes for breakfast today. They were perfectly fluffy and served with strawberries. It was really delicious! Even more perfect, my husband cooked!!
