Mixed Plate: Love is Never Having to Make Pancakes

Love is gentle. Love is kind. Love is not having to go out to eat pancakes and having your significant other make it for you. I'm pretty sure if Mr. Wasabi and I did get hitched, I'd want that written in our vows. Rainy day weather kept us from trekking out one Sunday for breakfast, but I was glad to turn over the reins in the kitchen and let Mr. Wasabi take us to flapjack heaven.

I don't know what Brock used in his pancake recipe, I don't know where he got the recipe from, and I don't care. Honestly, that's what makes a truly good meal, not having to be involved in making it or cleaning up after it, for that matter. Don't get me wrong, I love cooking, I love getting down to the nuts and bolts of a meal, but at the end of the day, if someone wants to make something for me, be it family, friend or just going to a restaurant, I'm totally down with that.

It was, of course, extra nice to have pancakes. I can't think of the last time when I had a pancake. Usually if I'm given  the choice of breakfast at a restaurant, I choose savory over sweet. But we had pancakes on the brain and Mr. Wasabi was kind enough to offer his skills in the kitchen while I got to sit back and take photos.

Breakfast and Quantum Leap coffee mugs, the right way to start the day - Photo by Wasabi Prime

We didn't have maple syrup since we don't usually make pancakes, but a light drizzling of honey was just fine. Paired with turkey sausage and a fried egg, it was a great way to start a lazy Sunday. And we had the added rocket fuel of coffee, poured in my fantastically nerdy Quantum Leap mugs. If anyone was wondering, I had the Sam mug and Brock took Al. Scott Bakula, you complete me. I got these shamefully awesome mugs at an equally shameful/awesome Star Trek convention in high school. I didn't even drink coffee at the time, but I had the conviction that, Someday, these will find their place in the world. And sure enough, they did, serving morning coffee on rainy days, and eliciting many comments of, "Where the hell did you get these things? I can't believe you'd bring them out in public." Well, at least there were pancakes.
