Feeding the 5,000

Conversation in bed this morning at Chateau Cookie:

D: So what are we going to have for breakfast this morning?
K: I don't know. Since someone bought a 10 lb. box of pancake mix, I'm guessing breakfast is a no-brainer.

The box advises that it will feed 80 people attending the annual Volunteer Firefighter Pancake Breakfast or the 80 people attending PETA's annual "Common Sewer Rats Have Feelings Too" fundraiser. I feel like the breakfast version of Bubba Gump.

What do you want? Chocolate chip pancakes? Blueberry pancakes? Apple Cinnamon Pancakes? Banana Walnut Pancakes? Caviar Pancakes? Scallion Cilantro Pancakes?

And let's not even start on our waffle options.

You can buy pancake mix? What's wrong with using flour, sugar, milk, butter and eggs?

I want all of those things, yummy...

Where's Martin been? :) I'm thinking maybe pancake mix not so common in the UK? :) Or, perhaps, he's never made pancakes. hehe :)

So, how did it go when D whipped it all up? :)

Other than that, I would have loved to be there for the choices, I think. I love your breakfasts. :)

Mmm waffles. I hate making pancakes so i have an 8lb box of aunt jemina instant just add water from BJ's. Its a bitch just to get it out the cabinet. But chocolate chip pancakes keep the kid out my hair the rest of the morning.

Oh and what mother has lost her mind enough to make pancakes from scatch?

I see that you can buy pancake mix, I'd just never heard of it as an alternative before now! And I have made pancakes, using those ingredients as I recall :p

Can I get a Fabian Basabe Pancake? Will that help push you up on Google? Who is he anyway?

Chocolate chip pancakes will work great for me - I'll be over at 9 okay? Great! Thanks!

You once said you wanted to know why I hadn't said IDH for Jennifer Garner. Well, today she's the one.

That Girl had an awesome recipe for Newton Pancakes that I want to try out soon!

Oh I long for blue berry pancakes! But until I reach my goal weight, and my metabolism changes I fear those are a thing of the past!

I also have the 10 pound box of baking mix ... and we have pancakes at least once a week (if not for breakfast on weekends, then for dinner during the week since I can make pancakes without paying a lick of attention to what I'm doing).

I would however, like to try your Scallion Cilantro Pancakes. Do you use some salsa or chili-flavored syrup for that?

oh man, hook me up! i love me some pancakes. :)

I completely suck at making pancakes....they're always raw on the inside and burned on the outside.

You, however, sound like you're pretty good at this whole pancake thing so...I think I'll take mine with chocolate chips. ;)

I just had some chocolate chip ones on Sunday... yummmmmmm. Glad the husband can cook - cuz I don't do pancakes. :)

Oh, God, that's disgusting! Scallion cilantro pancakes? Great post. Cracked me up. Happy pancake eating. Can you make biscuits from the box mix, too?
