While on vacation, if you gotta choose to one meal a day to eat out, don't be stupid. Pick "dinner." Dinner is the hardest to prepare, while breakfast is a snap: cereal, pancakes, sausage, oatmeal....all require little effort and mini cleanup. Which is why we rarely even think of going out for breakfast...that is, till we've eaten everything and have no choice but to find food outside.
Restaurant of choice? IHop. Why? Three reasons: Pancakes. Pancakes. Pancakes.
The pancakes are heavenly and their skinny link sausage (you are either a sausage: fat link or skinny) are so divine I begin to calculate how late the kids would be to school if we added IHop into our daily routine.
Today, ohhhh, when I ordered the cheap boring 2 eggs, links and hash browns...I was offered a seasonal extra! A choice; and let me tell you people, our mouths, eyes and stomachs ached at the sight and value. I got to add, for FREE, um hm, free, one of the following: an apple crepe, banana bread French Toast or Pecan pancakes.
Cheap & Delicious? I think I died.
I chose the middle and all five of us fought over who got to put their fork into the delight next.
Thank you IHop for keeping a pancake so delicious, I refuse to even try to make it at home.
