If you happened to wonder in passing why I didn't post or spend much time on social media last week, it's because my husband and I spent the past seven days on vacation in Nashville, Tennessee.
I fully intend to get a week's worth of posts out of our adventures, but today I'm starting with what I believe is a very logical focus on breakfast. Specifically pancakes.
We stopped for pancakes before leaving town on Monday morning.
That was a warmup for the pancake prize that would await us when we reached our destination. We visited Pancake Pantry twice on our visit, both times during the week and in the late morning or early afternoon to avoid the notorious crowds.
On our first visit I went for the pecan pancakes. Always a good choice.
On our second visit, I went with the traditional buttermilk pancakes. I might be drooling a little right now.
In both instances, it was almost embarrassing how quickly I inhaled my breakfast.
I think I've figured out one of Pancake Pantry's secrets: vanilla in the syrup. Now if only I knew how to make pancakes as soft and fluffy as theirs.
So eating played a big role in this vacation. However, we did a lot of other fun stuff as well and I'll tell you about it throughout the week and try to confine most of the food talk to Yelp, except where it leads to a discussion of celebrity sightings (foreshadowing!).
Meanwhile, I'm off to figure out what to have for breakfast today.
