The street is still one big sheet of ice . Salisbury got 6-8" yesterday and the high today is 34*. I don’t think there’s anyway busses will be running tomorrow…

Excited to do some cooking this morning and am HOPING to go for a run this afternoon. We’ll have to see what the ice does!

Currently sipping a second half cup of coffee to keep warm!

We have pancake Sundays at our house… but today we may have to skip it since we are meeting friends for brunch… unless they have pancakes where we are meeting….


2 Meghan@traveleatlove January 31, 2010 at 9:28 am

Mmmm pancakes! That looks really delicious. I wish it was 34 here! Yesterday was around 11 I think? Brrrrrr.


3 Jocelyn January 31, 2010 at 9:36 am

Look’s delicious! geeze…doesn’t seem bad over there..they stop the busses for that? we can snow up to our waist and it’s -30 plus windchill…everything still stays open and running 😛


4 Jamie January 31, 2010 at 9:45 am

awww what a creative breakfast! and i agree that we probably won’t have classes tomorrow but, ironically, i don’t have classes on monday anyway :(


5 Erin (Travel, Eat, Repeat) January 31, 2010 at 9:46 am

How cute! 😀 I love waking up to freshly fallen snow. The neighborhood looks so clean and fresh.


6 Freya @ January 31, 2010 at 9:50 am

That breakfast is SO pretty!!
Ohmygosh I tried oats in a jar this morning after seeing it on here – OH MY GOSH x 10! It was AMAZING!!
I have to say thankyou for introducing me to such an amazing concept 😀
I hope you get your run in and have a good day :)


7 Kath January 31, 2010 at 9:51 am

Haha – woo hoo!


8 Karla January 31, 2010 at 9:53 am

I was tempted to make pancakes this morning but I think I’m going to brunch with a friend! Instead I had a green monster to hold me over :)

I’ve noticed that a lot of blogger use topping alternative to syrup! I’ll give it a try! Mashed banana and PB sounds like a great idea!


9 Cyclist Kate January 31, 2010 at 9:56 am

Isn’t occasional snow so fun?! Very cozy and a great excuse to drink lots of warm beverages. Have fun! (You’re making me want pancakes with nut butter!)


10 Jessica @ The Process of Healing January 31, 2010 at 10:01 am

Oh. Yum. If you put the Kodiak Mix in Open Sky, I just might have to finally break down and get some. I’m terrible at making pancakes but maybe there’s hope for me yet?
Looks yummy!

And the snow is so pretty! But ours is like one big sheet of ice :/ Pretty to look at but not made for playing in.


11 Heather (Heather's Dish) January 31, 2010 at 10:01 am

so cute! i would love to try some kodiak mix, good thing it’ll be on open sky soon :)


12 rustique January 31, 2010 at 10:01 am

Gorgeous! Snow and pancakes (and your topping creativity) make breakfast somehow even better.


13 Tiffany January 31, 2010 at 10:06 am

Aww that’s such a cute pancake! I love the star cut-out on top! Such an awesome idea to start the day off right :)


14 Estela @ Weekly Bite January 31, 2010 at 10:07 am

I love that that call them “flapjacks” on the box :)

Have a great Sunday :)


15 Jay January 31, 2010 at 10:11 am

Why not just go running on the treadmill in this weather and be safe? It’s not my preferred choice either but I’d rather be safe and SMART.


16 Kath January 31, 2010 at 10:13 am

I’d have to DRIVE to a treadmill and to me that is less SMART than running.


17 christie @ honoring health January 31, 2010 at 10:12 am

we had pancakes, too. Ours were made with almond flour but still delicious!

We are about to go shovel out, we have about eight inches and both of us have to work tomorrow.


18 Allie (Live Laugh Eat) January 31, 2010 at 10:16 am

Purrrty pancake!! Cancelled classes would be spectacular but the snow is meeeeelting here. Duke is pretty stubborn when it comes to snow days too. We’ll have to see!

You are a shoe in for a snow day though :)


19 Kati @ Living Well January 31, 2010 at 10:22 am

Oh my gosh, cute pancake! Toppings look great! I love weekend breakfasts…I’ve had peanut butter french toast the past two days! Total YUM :–)


20 Cole January 31, 2010 at 10:24 am

That is one delicious looking pancake!


21 Heather January 31, 2010 at 10:26 am

Love the cookie cutter pancake. Pancakes are delicious – especially with peanut butter and banana.

Hoping the ice melts so you can get a run in today. Enjoy your Sunday!


22 Marisa (Loser for Life) January 31, 2010 at 10:29 am

Love the pancake! So pretty!

And now you have me identifying shapes in my french pressed coffee, too! A psychiatrist may have a field day with us 😉


23 Hannah January 31, 2010 at 10:32 am

That’s pretty much the cutest pancake ever. Makes even a non-pancake lover like me want one! Though that could also be just the peanut butter callling my name… 😛


24 Anna @ Newlywed, Newly Veg January 31, 2010 at 10:33 am

Cute!!! You breakfasts are so creative!


25 Heather @ Health, Happiness, and Hope January 31, 2010 at 10:39 am

Awww, what a pretty breakfast! Enjoy your Sunday!


26 caronae January 31, 2010 at 10:40 am

I love your little star pancake! When I was little, my sister and I used to use the extra batter to make tiny pancakes for our dolls!


27 Kaite@ Two Lives, One Lifestyle January 31, 2010 at 10:43 am

I love banana in my pancakes, so yummy. The coffee kinda looks like a turtle with no legs!


28 Jenn (www. ) January 31, 2010 at 10:44 am

Cuuuuuuuuuute star pancake! :)



29 Run Sarah January 31, 2010 at 11:01 am

I’ve never seen Kodiak mix here, but since so many blogs are raving about it, I may have to try to get my hands on a package.


30 Jayce January 31, 2010 at 11:03 am

mmm… Now I want pancakes!! I think today may be a breakfast for dinner day!


31 Danielle (Coffee Run) January 31, 2010 at 11:10 am

I’ve never seen Kodiak mix in the store either! It’d be nice to just whip up some pancakes without making them from scratch every time. Yours look delish btw :)


32 Jil January 31, 2010 at 11:10 am

Aw, that little star pancake is so cute! It looks delicious!


33 Haleigh January 31, 2010 at 11:16 am

Adorable starry breakfast :)


34 KatieF January 31, 2010 at 11:22 am

6-8 inches of snow??? Where I live (Syracuse, NY) that’s a small enough amount that you’re still expected to be at work on time! :)


35 Sophie @ yumventures January 31, 2010 at 11:24 am

Mmm I love bananas on pancakes! The star on top is so cute =) I love snow days, it is such a nice excuse to relax…its always ok with me to take a day off and sip some hot chocolate.


36 Fallon January 31, 2010 at 11:34 am

Pancakes look delicious!! Can’t wait to order the mix from your shop.


37 lindsey January 31, 2010 at 11:48 am

haha cute pancake…your scenery looks about like ours! about an inch of snow with ice on top :) we better not have school tomorrow!

♥ lindsey


38 Cat January 31, 2010 at 12:03 pm

How do you do it? I ran in 30 degree weather this morning and it was so cold that it hurt to sniff. Does anyone have any techniques to use when you run to keep your face warm?


39 Lauren @ eater not a runner January 31, 2010 at 12:24 pm

The snow (and your pancake) are beautiful!


40 Tracie @Hollafoodzone January 31, 2010 at 12:25 pm

Nothing tops pancakes better than peanut butter. period.


41 Ashley January 31, 2010 at 12:27 pm

Ohhh my…holy DEElicious pancake!!!! yummmmm


42 Mama Pea January 31, 2010 at 12:27 pm

Cute plating! Possibly no school tomorrow? I’ll keep my fingers crossed for you!


43 Annie @ stronghealthyfit January 31, 2010 at 12:29 pm

Your pancakes look so yummy! I had pancakes this morning too, what a great Sunday morning b-fast :-) My toppings were blackberry Liberte yogurt and local maple syrup.
It’s so funny to hear someone from the South talk about snow! Up in NH we have to keep going with our day-to-day things despite many feet of snow! (And lately, temps around 0 degrees…) Happy wintertime!

Cat: I wear a hat with earflaps as well as a fleece neckwarmer when I run in the winter. I can put the neckwarmer over my nose and mouth for a few minutes if it gets really cold!


44 Penny (Blonde Bibliophile) January 31, 2010 at 12:29 pm

Yummy breakfast!!!
I’m snowed and iced in too. I love it!!!! :-)


45 Hillary [Nutrition Nut on the Run] January 31, 2010 at 12:48 pm

I hope you do put the pancake mix on Open Sky soon. Have a great snowy day!


46 Paige@ RunningAroundNormal January 31, 2010 at 12:49 pm

What a cute little pancake! Love the star, haha.
Hope you get to go out for your run today! Mine will be on the treadmill :(


47 Ariffa January 31, 2010 at 12:55 pm

ooh what a pretty breakfast!!


48 lynn (The Actors Diet) January 31, 2010 at 1:09 pm

beautiful breakfast! enjoy the snow!


49 Salah@myhealthiestlifestyle January 31, 2010 at 1:30 pm

That snow looks gorgeous outside, and super cold! I bet its great for building a snowman :-) (I’m still a kid at heart). I’ll definitely have to try that banana mixture on some pancakes or french toast soon!


50 Cynthia (It All Changes) January 31, 2010 at 1:35 pm

I love when the snow sparkles from the ice. But be safe with your run. Don’t get hurt.


51 jessica January 31, 2010 at 2:26 pm

Why haven’t they salted the roads yet?!


52 Lindsay January 31, 2010 at 3:46 pm

The star on your pancake is adorable! And I like how you updated your sidebar pic to a teddy bear. Cute :-)


53 Devon (RSRR) January 31, 2010 at 7:03 pm

I am so jealous of your snow.. And your pancakes are adorable!


54 Foy Update - Cook. Garden. Write. Repeat. January 31, 2010 at 7:13 pm

My mom used to cut my peanut butter sandwiches with a star cookie cutter. Some how when it shaped like a star it tastes better!


55 Jenna January 31, 2010 at 11:10 pm

Cute star :)


56 Helen February 1, 2010 at 5:26 am

Cute breakfast! I really want to have pancakes now!


57 Andrea J February 2, 2010 at 11:35 am

the pancake is adorable, and looks delicious! i still have to try chia seeds! the comment about the bus made me laugh, i love that you make shapes out of the coffee foam, so cute :)
