Monday Morning Mirth September 21, 2009

  Monday Morning Mirth  

In my incarnation as an intrepid girl photographer, the daily grind often includes stops for Road Food!

And IHOP was putting the “i” in fine international (!) dining long before tunes or books or work, and it’s many a day where I’ve eaten Breakfast for Dinner (Breakner? FastDin?) and enjoyed some pancakes (and sausage). I blame my Dad, who thought Pigs in a Blanket were top fare any Sunday morning.

But when I saw these

it gave a new meaning to pigskins! Even though this will probably set my backfield in motion, and not in a good way, either, but I cannot resist.

But is football-shaped french toast better than dinosaur-shaped pancakes? What’s your favorite shape?

    The TV show “Scrubs” calls it “brinner”, an amalgam of “breakfast for dinner”. ;)

    yummy! what is it stuffed with?

    In our family, the shape of request would be the silver dollar pancakes. Or when they were really small, Barney.

    We went out to iHop for pancakes a week or two ago and my husband got those. They look better in the picture than in person.

    I always liked to Mickey Mouse style my pancakes, though silver dollar were also a top pick.

  5. Once in a while, especially if we were cooking our own, we’d try things like squiggly worm shapes. Long skinny shapes weren’t particularly successful, mostly because it was too hard to turn them. Mom would sometimes make portraits – a couple little dots for eyes and nose and a line for the mouth, then over that, pour the batter for a regular pancake. Then came the hair. The parts that went down first got a little browner than the rest.

    Pancakes – the smaller the better!
