Favorite Finds: National Pancake Day

I was planning to share my race recap of the Reston 10 Miler today, but I just finished eating pancakes and heard that today is National Pancake Day.  It’s like I have ESPN or something {name that movie?}.

My love affair with pancakes is no secret, they’re my favorite breakfast food.  Crisp around the edges, light and fluffy in the middle, silver dollar sized or as big as your head, thick as a board or thin as a sheet of paper, they’re the perfect golden brown canvas for all sorts of toppings.  What’s not to love?  Someday I need to eat pancakes for breakfast, lunch, and dinner.  I can’t believe I haven’t done it yet.  Maybe it’ll happen today since we have another snow day…

The majority of the time I try to keep my pancake ingredient list short and light – granted, I typically eat a few stacks a week – but every now and then {hello weekend!} it’s fun to indulge.  Another reason why I love pancakes, they’re so versatile and can be allergy friendly.  Healthy, sinful, savory, sweet.

And if at the end you’re craving pancakes but don’t have time to make them yourself, there’s a rumor floating around the Twittersphere that IHOP is serving free short stacks of buttermilk pancakes until 10PM!
