Pancake Fest

We have never been too fond of IHOP, and find it too sweet for our taste. Recently, Samir, Rudra and I hade been to Costco. There we had a sampling of theirr waffles. And Rudra, who was 20 months old at that time, loved it. This started a weekend ritual at our house. Samir and Rudra go swimming on the weekend and I make brunch. Pancakes with maple syrup, chicken sausage and eggs.

I get Aunt Jemima pancake mix. We use real maple syrup, which is a little expensive, but lasts a long time and is really yummy.

For pancakes
1 cup aunt Jemima pancake mix
1 egg
1 tblsp oil
3/4 cup milk

Mix the above and keep aside for 10 mins. Make the pancakes.

Chicken sausage
We get the sausage from costco or wegmans. We generally use the sundried tomato and herb chicken sausage.
Heat 1/2 cup water in a non stick pan. Prick the sausage with a fork and add to the water.. Cook on medium heat till all water dries up and the sausage becomes brown from the outside. Sausages come fully cooked but you just have to heat them completely.

We also have sunny side up eggs and freshly sqeezed juice with this.

The only problem is that after this meal, its realy difficult to do anything other than sleep.

I usually have the garden omelette at IHOP. I've been making waffles using the Aunt Jemima box mix and we like it that a lot.
