Tuesday.

It’s Tuesday – you know what that means!!

A day off :mrgreen:

I don’t really feel that I have earned or needed a day off on Tuesday – I’d rather it be Thursday – but with my dance class and a lighter bakery traffic, it makes sense. I’m actually going to be working on a few things from home this morning.

In Tuesday’s honor, I made pancakes!

IMG_4484-2Blog

And by “made” I mean I reheated a few of Sunday’s batch under the broiler for a few minutes until they were warm and crispy!

Topped with Nat Nutty Vanilla Almond Butter, frozen blackberries that I thawed in a pot and Cville Cluster!

Tazo Awake to drink! I think my mom rekindled my love for hot tea (she drinks like 5 cups a day!)

There is only one thing I want to do today: WHOLE FOODS!

Are you looking for snack ideas at whole foods?

Great idea sticking the pancakes under the broiler! I’ve done them in the toasted but under the broiler you could toast toppings on them too! Oven-carmelized bananas?!

I wish I could have reheated my GH Cville pancakes from Sunday but we ate them all!! :) They were seriously so good.

Have fun at Whole Foods and enjoy your day off (I totally know what you mean about wanting it to be later in the week. I usually coast through pretty well Monday – Wednesday but by Thursday I’m more than ready for a day off!)

I’m going to have to try the broiler idea. Genius! Microwave pancakes just aren’t the same.

Tuesday is a quiet bakery day? Do you know why it’s Tuesdays that are quiet?
I’ve heard that pancakes are awesome put in a toaster for a while :) I’m yet to try it, but it makes them real crispy apparently :)
Have a great dance class!

Mon-Wed is quiet all throughout the foodservice industry

I don’t know if you know this but Tuesdays are horrible – so the fact that you get a day off on Tuesday just makes that your life rocks. FOr real.

I love Tazo teas. I drink Calm all the time. :) I prefer it hot, too, even on 100+ days.

Enjoy your much needed day off. :)

42 Karen July 26, 2011 at 10:37 am

Those pancakes look amazing. How did your husband make them again? Have you thought about selling some of your bakery items online, such as via etsy? I would love to buy some of your items and to be able to pick and choose which items I want instead of a bundle on OpenSky. Love your blog!

43 KathEats July 26, 2011 at 1:15 pm

They are from the Great Harvest pancake mix. We are hoping to do online ordering in the future – not sure when though

I’m going to make your “Crunchy Buckwheat Granola” when the weather cools down from the 90’s, and I was wondering if you have the nutritional information on your recipe?

Reply

51 KathEats July 26, 2011 at 1:16 pm

I don’t have the nutr. info, but you can plug it into a recipe calculator

52 Angela July 26, 2011 at 11:21 am

Where do you get your dishes from?
I really need to start presenting my food in nicer ways and then I should stop to appreciate it more as I’ll have taken time to prepare and present it.
You have the approach to food I would love to have. How do you do it ? :)

Whole Foods is like an adult play land. I think I need to make pancakes for dinner one of these nights… I have been craving breakfast for dinner!

Enjoy it to the fullest! I’m going to Whole Foods and Trader Joe’s on Thursday and can’t wait. It’s such an event for me since I don’t live hardly close enough to go on a regular basis. :D

I absolutely adore day of the week napkins! I have two sets that have been passed down in my family. Both are ‘chore’ sets. One is of animals doing different chores and the other is of a cute little fat lady doing different chores. Does anyone have any good recommendations for tough /old stains? One set looks pretty rough.

66 Lauren @ Lettuce Eat Cake July 26, 2011 at 1:23 pm

I totally agree–leisurely grocery shopping on a day off is the most amazing thing ever. I don’t understand people who hate grocery shopping; it combines shopping and food, two of the most awesome things ever.

67 Lexi @ A Spoonful of Sunshine July 26, 2011 at 3:51 pm

Hope you have a wonderful day off! Whole Foods and pancakes sound like an award-winning combo :)

Reply

68 Sabina July 26, 2011 at 4:05 pm

If you have a toaster, try reheating leftover pancakes in that. It uses far less electricity than an oven’s broiler. Just a friendly tip!

Also – pancakes freeze really well, making for homemade, nutritious “eggos”. ;-)

Reply

69 Chelsea @ One Healthy Munchkin July 26, 2011 at 4:50 pm

That is such a good idea to stick them under the broiler – I hate microwaved pancake leftovers. :P

Enjoy your day off!

Ooooohhh leftover pancakes! I’ve never thought of making extra for leftovers, but it’s a really good idea!

My days off can be so sporadic so I relish in them and relax as much as possible. Although somehow that seems to go to the wayside and I end up doing a bunch of errands! At least this weekend I’ll be going up to Maine for my days off. :-) Vacationland indeed.
