Title: Pancakes

Blog Entry: I love pancakes! I don't have them often, because not only do they totally 'fill me up' so that I don't feel hungry the rest of the day, but also because of the huge amount of calories! The above photo is what I would have here at home: plain pancakes.   And that's pretty much what I had (though not as good as this!) this morning when we went to a family breakfast meeting at Cracker Barrel.  My husband's brother & his wife are in town visiting; so they suggested meeting  there, with Aunt Lois, because Cracker Barrel has always been the 'aunts' favorite. Aunt Lois is the only one left now, so we still go there in deference to her.   One good thing about Cracker Barrel: you can sit & drink coffee as long as you want, after you're done eating!  They don't "rush" you to leave--if you don't remain an overly long period of time.  But they only have 3 types of pancakes: plain, blueberry, & 'pecan'. Now, I ordered pecan--but got plain. I just shrugged & didn't make a big deal out of it.  I got 2 (smaller) pancakes & didn't even finish those--they just were not that good.     However...if I really want good pancakes--we go to Denny's!  My favorites there include the Salted Caramel/Banana cream pancakes & the Dulce de Leche pancakes. The 'breakfast' comes with hash  browns, bacon/sausage, & eggs. However, I always have to give at least the hash browns to my husband--and I still bring home some pancakes! So, I started getting 'just' the pancakes. They have a fairly new item called Double Berry/banana pancakes which I haven't tried yet.
