when i was asked to review IHOP at HomeÆ Syrups i immediately said yes.
we are a breakfast loving family!
i make waffles and craig makes pancakes.
not on the same days, of course, but those are each of our specialties.
i very rarely attempt pancakes on my own, and i have never heard of craig making waffles.
it's one of his favorite meals.
our entire married life he has made his mother's recipe for homemade pancakes.
he mixes it in a blender so only one dish gets dirty (besides the griddle).
and our kids have ALWAYS helped him with the mixing, pouring and flipping.
my youngest girls fight over the privilege of adding the ingredients!
they love to make breakfast with their dad.
scott even jumped in to flip one.
he usually just shows up to eat the pancakes....hardly ever to flip one!
and he can NEVER wait for the whole family to sit down together to eat.
he digs in.
and is finished before anyone else even comes to the table.
while craig makes the pancakes, i make the scrambled eggs and cut up some fruit.
this morning was lauren's birthday, so annie and i thought it would be fun to add sprinkles to the pancakes!
she shook like crazy until they were adequately sprinkle filled.
whenever you cook with annie (or draw or play games or...anything)
she usually hugs and kisses you throughout the process.
it's just who she is.
it's her way of letting you know she is happy in that moment.
i love that.
the birthday girl appeared.
seventeen years old...that is crazy.
i called everyone in for breakfast, and they were honestly so excited to try the new syrup.
IHOP at Home sent us Original, Lite, Sugar Free, Rooty Tooty Fresh N FruityÆ Strawberry, and Rooty Tooty Fresh N FruityÆ Blueberry!
what a treat to have so many choices.
the boys tried the fruit flavored syrups...LOVED them.
Annie chose Original.
She was a happy camper.
we don't live near any IHOP restaurants.
the kids beg to go there when they see one...which we do when we are visiting grandma or on vacation.
but now we can pretend we are there by using their syrup AT HOME!
maybe i will get some spray whipped cream, and we'll make our own funny face pancakes!
i used the Sugar Free flavor.
i like my syrup not quite as sweet as my kids like it to taste.
and it's nice to save those calories too.
sprinkles on my breakfast made me smile.
at every meal at house...this is what waffle does.
meal times are his favorite times of the day.
i bet breakfast meals are his favorite.
my family loved trying the syrups!
