No, it’s not my fault that I just quoted Weird Al.

It’s Crockett’s fault.

He keeps singing it.

I just realized how remiss I’ve been, spring break wise. I didn’t even show you pictures of my pancakathon!

Laura and I went to The Huckleberry for brunch on my first official day of break.

I don’t know how many pancakes are technically required for a pancakathon.

There are three here. And I ate all of them.

I think that counts.

The Huckleberry is hit or miss, for me, but it worked out that day. Perhaps I’ve been trying to get too fancy with my ordering choices. Even when it’s mediocre, though, it’s in my little town, and that’s enough to keep me coming back.

Laura keeps coming back because she has a thing for tea, and they are not stingy with their tea choices.

Plus? Crepes.

Crockett really likes the crepes too.

I can’t get into crepes.

They’re not real food, people. They’re all ethereal and stuff.

Food, especially breakfast food, should not be of the sort that allows you to forget about it two hours later.

Happily, my pancakes kept me full for a week and a half.

Ok, that’s probably a slight exaggeration.

I did feel the need for something a little less ‘piles of carbohydrate’ when I finally ate again, so I made a ceasar salad with grilled mahi and homemade bacon croutons.

Homemade bacon croutons: chop two pieces of bacon and three pieces of bread (no crusts) into bite size pieces. Put all the pieces in a pan over medium high heat. Cook until everything is crispy, stirring occasionally.

See? Healthy.
