pancakes unlimited!

We have received our first package in the mail at our new house -- hooray for mail!! Doctor Hectic's parents, Jan & Lee, knowing our fondness for all things breakfast, sent us our very own swedish pancake pan! And cute little spoons for applying tasty toppings!

Many fine weekend brunches at Jan & Lee's have turned into all-day affairs as we took turns cranking out the wee & delicious pancakes. Sweet toppings of sugar or jams, or Eric M's inventive and tasty savory toppings of whatever else he might find on the table... it makes me miss the days when we all lived in the same area and could gather for breakfast any old weekend. Now we are scattered across all parts of the country (or world, depending on where Bengeance is), which I guess makes the times when we do get together, like for Molly & Kenny's wedding in April, more special, but it makes me a little lonely too.

I miss my Minnesota peeps, wherever they may be currently living. Maybe that's why I'm warming up to this whole blog thing, because I realize that by reading their blogs it allows me to sort of be a part of their daily life and to share in the moments that shape their day. And now, by having my own blog I'm maybe having the same impact on them?

Sheesh, this kinda turned into a depress-o post; that wasn't my intention. Pancakes! That'll cheer me up! Good 'ol GricklePants and I will have a fine banquet of swedish pancakes this weekend to infuse the walls of this house with delicious pancake smells, and if I can ever find the little thingy that allows me to get pictures off the camera, I'll even post a few!

Mrs. B, aka Jan, and I are happy to have provided first mail, and the means to multiple weekend breakfast feasts, as your WA friends will quickly become fond of your cuisine and condiments, frequenting your abode, and, alas, spilling various substances on your hardwood floors. Small price for friendship, however! Enjoy!
