We had a full day of ice hockey and everyone was exhausted. No way was I cooking tonight it was time to head out. We did not want the normal list of go out options, and no one felt like getting all dressed up to head out, so it was time for a casual atmosphere with plenty of choices.
Breakfast is the meal we all love the most, but rarely get to indulge in because mornings start way to early to get the griddle going and get out the door on time. Our decision tonight was to try some delicious Apple Ring Pancakes, Pumpkin Spice Pancakes because limited time menu offerings happen fast and we love them.
Going out is all about enjoying the kids, watching their interactions and just being a family. No dish duty, no clearing the table, no worries, just walking in and eating and leaving when we are done and that is how to make memories over breakfast. When you can lavishly live dining at a restaurant, you get to make memories over breakfast as you enjoy the small things.
Letting The Kids Be Kids
So as we settle into the booth, the kids do their thing. A) Locate WiFi, first mission accomplished, (forehead wipe, we can all relax now). B) Menu overview – Mmmm “mom I already saw Chicken and Waffles, I know what I getting!” C) Just let me get that first sip of soda, because you deprive us of this any other time (lol- parenting rules!) .
Just so we are clear, while we were provided a gift card to head out to IHOP, images and opinions are my own. Did you know that allergen friendly dining is available at IHOP? (remember allergen friendly is different for everyone so discuss your allergies with your server, as they met all our requirements!)
“Hey MOM, did you know this?”
The Limited Time Offers (LTO’s)
Call it seasonal menu, limited time offers, whatever you like, just call it out off the menu at your local IHOP between now and November 13 or you won’t be eating these pancakes. Craveable, delicious Pumpkin Spice Pancakes, with real pumpkin, cinnamon, ginger and nutmeg, topped off with creamy whipped topping.
Don’t stop there, we ordered the combination platters to add a little more variety. This is the sausage and egg combination along with hash-browns.
Apple Ring Pancakes
Apples and spice and everything nice, just think of buttermilk pancakes with a Gala apple ring griddled in the middle and you got this! Creamy cinnamon apple butter makes this completely delectable and reminiscent of being in grandma’s kitchen!
Temptation Leads To Innovation
Kids see all those syrups as tempting to taste. It was time to really push the chicken and waffles meal to the maximum as my son decided to fill all the waffle nooks with a different flavor and then repeat the procedure. The process took a bit of time to make sure there was no overlap, a bit of taste-testing and then….. The final product, a wickedly awesome combination for every teen to try!
Whether it was the giggle in the booth, the syrup sampling festival, the ‘throwing shade’ moments or just enjoying our kids, dining out is how to make memories over breakfast.
Delicious fun, family time, and breakfast 24 hours a day what more could a family outing deserve? Well let’s not forget the limited time offer of fall fresh tastes! Lavishly live food out loud with the delicious foods at IHOP. That’s our story today for How To Make Memories Over Breakfast!
