Pancake feast!!! I am always the first one up on Sundays, so I cook breakfast. Matt usually takes about an hour to fully wake up, as he should on his day off. I love to surprise him with a cheerful “Breakfast is ready!!” and he stumbles out to see what we’re having. Today – pancakes!

What a wonderful way to wake up on Sunday. I’m the cook in the family so I cook all the meals but I would have loved to wake up to THIS feast.

Salted almond sounds so good! I wish I was eating some of those right now. Mmmm… maybe a pancake brunch? :)

I have this image in my mind of you springing out of bed at like 5am and cooking something delicious every day. I’m still in my bathrobe, drinking a smoothie from a bottle…oops!

I feel like I could make a sarcastic post called, “Surprise! Oatmeal,” haha. What would be a surprise is if we got some sunshine here in Boston :-/ Happy Sunday!

What is the difference between Kodiak cakes and regular pancakes?

Reply

11 KathEats March 4, 2012 at 10:18 am

Kodiak cakes are an all-in-one whole wheat pancake mix whereas regulars have to be made from scratch

I just finished eating Kodiak cakes myself! Mine were of the pumpkin, cinnamon chocolate chip variety with good ol’ fashioned PB on top :)

I love to surprise my husband with breakfast on the weekends, too. Luckily the cat singles me out to wake up for breakfast so I’m always up first. Lately I’ve been making whole wheat waffles of insane greatness.
