2 Kinds of Pancakes, 1 Sunday

Good Morning!
Today was a little different from our regular Sunday morning routine.  I went out for breakfast!  The last few months, it's been pancake Sunday @ our house, but not today (well for me at least, but we'll get to that.)  Today someone else made me pancakes as my friend M & I ventured out for a breakfast date.  I had the pancakes, I always have the pancakes.  Blueberry pancakes to be specific.  No big surprise there.  Coffee, pancakes and a good catch up session.  Hooray for weekends!

Being I was ditching the family this morning for some quality time with M.  I was still 'required' to make pancakes @ home.  Just because I was getting my pancakes elsewhere, doesn't mean I get to forget about my weekly pancake commitment.  Plus, my little guy is just so cute when he asks "what kind of pancakes are you blogging about today mom?"  Did I mention he is 3 going on 67.  To answer his question, apple cinnamon.  I made a homemade apple pie last night for a dinner party, and what better way to use apples if not in a pie, then to put them in a pancake.  Pies & Pancakes in less than 12 hours.  Mom of the Year!  That's how I'd like to be referred from here out. 

Happy Sunday & thanks for the breakfast date M.  Loved it!
