My theme for VeganMoFo 2012 is ‘Treats and Sweets’.
‘Treats and Sweets’ also pertains to breakfast.
I hope you already knew that, but if not, have I got the breakfast for you.
After going… what, several years? without eating pancakes except for these pancakes, lately I have been on a weekly pancake schedule.
I invited my brother over for pancakes on Sunday morning. Then I was happy he didn’t want to come over, since we were out singing karaoke until 4:am. Yes, I probably invited him around 1:30am… nevermind.
He came over later in the day, and we enjoyed these pancakes – made with peanut butter and served with more peanut butter and maple syrup. Like a peanut butter cup in a pancake stack. Perfect for a… Sunday afternoon.

We sang everything from seventies soft rock to current rap. Yep, pancakes were a good call for a ‘late breakfast’.
You just slip out the back, Jack, make a new plan, Stan…
