Good morning!!

I only slept until 7, but it was the lovely lounging on the couch that turned this day into a Sunday. I watched Property Virgins, My First Place and Divine Design – love houses!!!

And pancakes and tea made it all the more fun

I made the Great Harvest Pancake mix with bananas, Krissy’s Pecan Butter (which was SUPER drippy!!), coconut and chia seeds.

Irish Breakfast Tea on the side. I’m really enjoying my teas lately now that I’ve stocked up on the black teas I love

Plans today include a lot of nothing and perhaps a little HP7!!

Okay this post just completely sold me on those mugs – I’m already counting down the days until they come to OpenSky! (Just don’t tell my boyfriend because we don’t really have room for anymore dishware, haha).

I’m doing the same thing on this lazy Sunday and I love it (it’s pouring rain here so I feel like I have an excuse to do nothing but laundry, baking and sitting around :) )

Enjoy!

I love your tea towels. I am a sucker for vintage aprons & kitchen tea towels. Ebay has great stuff & so do you.

Pecan butter – something I have yet to try but seems to be very hard to come by at the market.

Pecan butter is my favorite! I’ve made a chocolate kind before… it tastes like butterscotch :)

Pancakes are so yummy! I can’t decide whether or not I like them or French toast better but both are awesome ways to start a day :-)

The pancakes look good! I wonder what chia seeds would be like in the batter? I’ll have to find out sometime. :)

Yay! I had pancakes too this morning. My dad cooked up our family’s best specialty pancakes–Orange-Yogurt pancakes. We’ve been making them for years, but every time I have them, I fall in love all over again. They taste just like creamy orange sponge cake :)

I made pecan butter before, and it turned out drippy but delicious as well!

Have a great day, Kath :)

After your post last week on Adagio tea, I visited the site and went a little crazy… an order of 11 types of tea later, I am OBSESSED. Thanks for the tip, they are amazing!!!

I can tell you like design, because your mug and plate match your blog colors! So coordinated :)

I love Irish breakfast tea. The best was when I went to Ireland with my college and the owners of the hostels we stayed in would make us authentic irish tea. So rich and milky! :-)

Every time I see you have bananas in your breakfast (everyday!) I think how you would be having serious banana withdrawals if you were in Australia! Since huge storms, floods and a cyclone hit our banana growing regions at the start of the year we have had a banana shortage! Bananas are about $10-14 per kilo. One banana could cost you $2-3. Even though I’m not a huge banana fan I do miss them and even more so when I see your breakfasts each day! :)

Pecans are one of the only nuts I haven’t made nut butter with! off to check out the recipe :)

Question about black tea. You’ve mentioned that caffeinated coffee is addictive to your system and affects your sleep. Does black tea affect you the same way? I had to cut out caffeine in coffee and tea!

41 KathEats August 15, 2011 at 8:18 am

it’s much more mild for me… although I still feel a little of the caffeine

I love your vintage tea towel! Or is it an embroidered tablecloth? It reminds me of an apron I have of my Grandmothers’s that I love.
