This morning I woke up with one thing on my mind. Pancakes!

Unfortunately, Chris woke up with waffles on the mind.

What to do, what to do?

How about have the best of both worlds and make panwaffles?IMG_3253We purchased this awesome pan from Williams Sonoma a few years ago that makes pancakes that have the same crevices as waffles.

Brilliant.

This morning I used Hodgson Mill’s Whole Wheat Buttermilk pancake mix.IMG_3252 I was not really in the mood to make pancakes from scratch this morning. It’s so easy to just add milk, oil, and an egg!IMG_3246 In case you’re wondering, I use a wooden skewer to flip the panwaffles.IMG_3259 Like so.

The first batch came out much lighter than the second batch.IMG_3262 I prefer my panwaffles well done!

Good thing Chris doesn’t really have a preference as I took most of the brown & crispy ones.

And then I made a tower of panwaffles!IMG_3282With alternating layers of strawberries & peanut butter, and banana slices & peanut butter. IMG_3300 And topped off with a sprinkle of shredded coconut.IMG_3276IMG_3280Mmmmmmmmmmmmm…..IMG_3303 Was all I could say after every bite.

You should really invest in a panwaffle pan.IMG_3272 It’s worth it, I promise.

Can anyone tell which strawberries are from a local farm and which were shipped in from California and purchased at the grocery store?IMG_3268 I mean, it’s pretty easy to tell the difference. Not to mention how different the taste is! I love me some fresh, organic, local strawberries

Last night Chris and I met our friends Kate & Roger for sushi at Sushi Love.

We began with edamame.IMG_3243 And wine.IMG_3244 And then I was enjoying chit chatting with our friends so much that I completely forgot to take a photo of the sushi!

But that’s ok because I’ve been to and blogged about sushi love several times before.

And now I’m off to swim a few laps before the pool gets too crowded with sunbathers. I will probably be one of them in a few hours :)

Lastly, I want to congratulate our good friends Ashley & Matt who had their baby, Emily Jane, earlier this morning! We’re so happy for them!

Have a wonderful weekend!
