It’s Thursday, Thursday, Thursday

September 22, 2011

In case you forgot what day it is…

Because I sure did! I love me some mid-week partying, but sometimes it throws the week off.

Especially when pancakes are served ;)

IMG_7519-2Blog

I have a lot to do today plus a haircut and business at the bakery this afternoon, so I’m getting a move on – with pancakes in the belly.

Cakes-2Blog

Kodiak cakes (which make mid-week pancakes a cinch because they are just-add-water and we are out of milk!) plus bananas (cooked in and on), Biscoff spread and Barney Butter.

Cocktail du jour – more coconut pouchong!

Haircut days are the best! Are you going anything different? Last weekend I chopped mine off and dyed it red on a fall-inspired whim. :)

I love haircut days, too! I have very, very, very thick hair that I keep in a pixie-ish cut, so I have to get it cut every 3 weeks and I LOVE a fresh haircut :)

Just a trim, I think!

Pancakes were on my menu for breakfast too this morning! What is it about them that can turn a good morning into a GREAT morning?? :)

Heading to Cville tonight for the Ray Lamontagne concert, fingers crossed I’ll be able to stop by Great Harvest before closing time! Happy Thursday! :)

Fancy cakes! I need a hair cut so badly.

I was supposed to have a hair appt today, but I rescheduled it for a couple of weeks from now. I just ran out of time to fit it in this week! :(

Where do you get Kodiak Cakes (besides OpenSky? I’m not a happy OS customer right now – the last bunch of granola I ordered from you arrived 26 days after I ordered it. Ridiculous). Are they in stores?

You don’t think the 26 days were intentional?!

I think people have found it at TJ Maxx type stores. I haven’t seen it in stores yet

Reply

11 Angie @ Musings of a Violet Monkey September 22, 2011 at 9:21 am

Ha. Didn’t think of the 26 days in that way. But yeah, disappointed with OpenSky. They don’t return emails, either. :(

Sorry about that. It was a warehouse backup (they outsource). If you call them about your experience they might make it up to you somehow?

13 Kim@TheCrunchyKind September 22, 2011 at 9:56 am

I got my kodiak cakes @ The Fresh Market in Richmond, not sure if that is elsewhere but you can check on the kodiak website for a list of stores : )

14 Erin September 22, 2011 at 2:10 pm

I got mine on Amazon. I also got some organic canned pumpkin. Not very local, I know. And of course, as soon as I ordered the Kodiak Cakes, I realized they are made right down the street!

15 Sonya September 22, 2011 at 10:01 am

My OS order took just as long too. Oh well.

I have seen Kodiak Cakes at Big Lots. Somewhere around $2-3 a box.

17 Ashley September 22, 2011 at 8:54 pm

You can order Kodiak straight from their website – works great!

18 Pat September 22, 2011 at 9:37 pm

I can get kodiak Cakes at my local grocery which is a Kroger affiliate. I bet that you can request that your store order them. They are not much cheaper, but you can get them immrdiately with no shipping costs.

I saw biscoff spread in the grocery store yesterday for the first time and thought of you immediately! ;)

Sometimes Thursday seem better than Fridays … there is the relief of making it through hump day combined with the extreme anticipation of the weekend :)

I finally tried your overnight oats! I wrote about my attempts in my latest post. And I had some sunflower butter, for a snack later on too. I guess it was Kath-inspired food day!

Mid week pancakes sound delicious — although we usually have them for dinner instead of breakfast!

I have thick, curly hair that is the quintessential J-fro. Haircut days make me feel like a real, live humanperson with decent hair.

Our favorite way to have Kodiak cakes lately is with sliced banana and fresh strawberries mixed into the batter. The strawberries get so sweet as they cook, and I swear it makes the cakes fluffier. It’s just like strawberry shortcake.

That’s what my dinner last night looked like…almost. Instead of cakes my Flaxseed Pebo (peanut butter) was slathered on High Five Bread! Been lovin’ the GH bread toasted lately. Must be a fall thing. I noticed egg nog in the store yesterday and immediatly though of GH bread dipped in it and griddled for French toast! Yummers!

I love pancakes. I haven’t used a mix in ages – I haven’t decided if I am too lazy to buy a box or just too used to making from scratch (pancakes are one of two reasons I buy baking powder, haha).

Pancake parties are the BEST parties! Especially when coconut is involved. I partied with chocolate chip pancakes last night, and trust me, things got CRAZY. :)

I’m using up the Buttermilk + Honey, but I love the regular the most

I’m getting a haircut today too! I’ve let it grow out for about two months without cutting it but I think the time has come for a trim, I’m always scared though because hairstylists dont seem to understand the concept of growing hair out and love to cut off all my progress :(

55 Lindsay @ bike before bed September 22, 2011 at 12:06 pm

Kudos for actually using the right napkin! I remember I had those day of the week undies growing up… But I’d always wear Monday on Friday and Saturday on Tuesday:)

Can you direct to me a past post (if there is one) that shows what you typically buy at the grocery store each week? I’m guessing you have to buy a TON of lettuce given all the salads you eat :)

Is Biscoff Spread the next big “blogger” thing? I feel like I’m reading about it everywhere! You, Tina, Averie, etc. I just picked up a jar the other day and that stuff is seriously addicting!

Maybe! I’ve been in love with the cookies for years and tried the spread a few years ago. A blog reader just brought me another jar

Can you get the Kodiak cakes mix in Cville?

I haven’t seen them in person anywhere, but they’re on Amazon so the next time you buy something there you could add them to get the free shipping threshold.

Found them at Fresh Market in Williamsburg and Richmond, where I happened to be traveling over the weekend.
