There's nothing like waking up in the morning with a usual grumble to get ready for an outing with friends, siblings and cousins. We had already planned for this days ago, making it known that it's a breakfast outing. We couldn't trust the boys to wake but they've surprised us. Usually we go out in the evenings but this evening my cousin, a different one from a previous story, had an anniversary party planned. Our destination for this morning was iHOP a.k.a the international house of pancakes. There was a short waiting list for tables and already we can smell the crispy beef bacon being cooked, the warm and welcoming smell of fresh pancakes and waffles. It was definitely mouth watering.
Our orders were in and before us was a lovely spread. My gold and crispy chicken and waffles with a glass of chocolate milk. I was always a fan of sweet and savory so I couldn't help but reach for the pecan butter syrup. I drizzled the thick golden syrup of goodness all over my chicken and waffles and proceeded to consume.
There was laughter all around the table, some shenanigans here and there but I would say it was great.
Great food + great company = a great time.
