Breakfast for dinner
I just love breakfast for dinner. Who says pancakes, waffles and sausage can't be enjoyed anytime of the day? Obviously, it wasn't me, because that's exactly what I made for our Thursday Night Raw this week.
I served it all alongside a big bowl of fresh fruit and some sliced strawberries and bananas for topping the pancakes and waffles. I even made chocolate, blueberry and raspberry sauces, since I was running a little low on the grade B maple syrup (Matthew didn't seem to mind; I think he preferred the chocolate one over the traditional maple).
I wasn't quite sure which sauce to chose, so I opted to try them all. By the looks of my plate, I think I went a little overboard (but it still tasted great).
Matthew liked the pancakes, which he ate sans sauce. He followed them up with some waffles drizzled in chocolate and some fresh fruit. A little hesitant to try the sausage, he saved them until last.
He was surprised by the flavor, which was a bit stronger than he expected. It reminded him of a Slim Jim, so he quoted this wrestler.
He was never a fan of the processed sticks, but did admit that they tasted a lot like meat (scary).
Jacob, my pickiest eater, had no desire to try any of the mock meat or the waffles/pancakes. At least he sat down to eat with some cooked pancakes (I didn't photograph them; the ones in the pic are raw) and fruit, mostly apples and cantaloupe (his favorites).
In the end, I have to say it was another successful meal. Matthew put it on our list of menus we should do again, but most importantly, everyone ate dinner together at the table. Isn't that what really matters?
