Favorite Things Friday - Pancake Rituals

No it's not Friday yet in my part of the world, but it's oh so close.  So no harm in sharing my Favorite Thing this week and linking up with Shay over at Quilting in My Pyjamas.

When we lived in Texas, Drama Teen (aka Kiddo in those days) loved to go out to eat breakfast, even if it was for dinner.  She would drag her diaper bag to the back door and say "Bye-Bye Eat!  We were back in Texas for Spring Break last month and Drama Teen spotted her all time favorite breakfast spot and begged for us to visit if for breakfast the next morning.   

There is no diaper bag these days, but after DT orders, she still has to have something to keep herself busy while she waits for her order to show up.  

Coffee creamer art became her preferred way to endure the hunger pains induced by just reading the menu.

The anti-gravity version.

A "creamer" dog.

All just to keep us amused until our respective favorite pancake feasts arrive.  

It's a good thing we don't eat here often or I'd be a couple of sizes larger, but it's both fun and comforting to know that some favorites just don't change.  

Post Script - I wrote this post before reading Shay's FTF for the week.  She says this is the last one.  It's been fun sharing my favorites and many thanks to Shay for being such a wonderful hostess.

I recognize that booth pattern. That is mil's favorite restaurant too! I love the story of DT and her diaper bag; so cute, and brings back happy memories. Not that I want to do that over now, but it would be nice to do it with grandkids.

What a clever kid, manipulating (oops sorry), encouraging her parents to take her out to eat -- diaper bag and all! LOL

Glad you had a great breakfast treat. Pity about "Friday Favourites"!

Breakfast is a favorite of mine too.

The best pancakes I ever had were in Hawaii. You guys really know what you're doing with breakfast over that side of the world. Pancakes always beat vegemite on toast . No contest!

Ooh they look scrummy. Breakfast in a diner is one of my best things about America (and we will be visiting again in October - can't wait)
