say goodbye to summer

Mr. M was off to work again at 6:30 a.m. this morning but the rest of us slept in just one more time and enjoyed a "last day of summer holidays" pancake breakfast.

In a little while we're going downtown to see Charlie and the Chocolate Factory and when we come home, we'll be busy labeling all the shiny new school supplies. It's not going to be easy to get the little nippers (or myself, for that matter) to bed at a decent hour tonight after a summer of staying up late and enjoying our free time.

Bacon and Maple syrup....I already ate but you still made me drool!

Hope the kids have a wonderful new school year :D

Are you making them those back-to-school bags?

Do we get pancakes when we visit Germany in October? do we? do we?

belinda - there's always room for bacon and maple syrup, eh? Usually only the little kids going into the first grade get a Schultüte so mine have already had their turn.

swissmiss - sure, drop on by and you can have all the pancakes you can eat!

Forget the pancakes.........BACON!....Hmmm...bacon.

Apparently in the UK Bacon sandwiches are responsible for most people leaving a vegetarian lifestyle and returing to a full on meat eating lifestyle :)

Oooooh Cristina. I'm leaving tomorrow for a two week visit to the US. Now I know what I'll be eating every morning.

Pancakes and bacon is such a simple (and classic) meal. I'd love to know why NOBODY serves it in Spain.

Thanks for giving me something to fixate upon during the nine hour flight. See you back in blogville in September.

School started for us on monday. Getting up at 6.15am is sooo hard. The kids went to be much earlier last night... they are worn out by school! The free mornings are L O V E L Y :-)

You are so sophisticated to make star-shaped pancakes!

Sal - hope you have a great time!

Lillian - hi, nice to meet you and thanks for stopping by.

antipo - I had some help: star-shaped silicone pancake molds. What will they think of next?
