    Today the morning starts of wonderful blue skies and pretty warm no complaints here at all. Got my computing and coffees done and headed down to the 7:15. I was asked if I would like to volunteer help cook for the free pancake breakfast here in the park.
     No problem if they need help I can do it. After 10 years in my restaurant and know a grill pretty good. Mike was there getting things ready mixing up the batter they just needed someone to cook the pancakes. So when the time came just before 8:30 I began. 8 pancakes at a time, these are cooked to order. I was flipping them for the next 2 hours, 2 per plate and just over 190 plates. some people want some extras so I figured I made about 400 pancakes in 2 hours. Kept me hopping and brings back memories of my restaurant days back in the 90's. 10 years I had fun there.
this was me having fun in the kitchen

     Every thing went smooth and all were are fed, no complaints. For a free breakfast, but people came back for seconds and thirds.
     Breaky done and actually had a small pancake myself when done. Home by 11 am  Suzie had the laundry sorted and over the the laundromat in town, Let the machines do their magic and I can enjoy my e-reader in the car. Back home 1 pm, dumped and flushed our sewage , filled our fresh water so we good to go in the morning, Defrosted our fridge, had a nice hot shower, Now to relax a bit. Friends down the road had a nice campfire going so we joined them for 'Happy Hour" Nice to enjoy the sunshine and a warm campfire after all the rain we have had.
      Wonderful to spend some time with these guys with pretty decent afternoon weather.

Where have we been this summer ?


  1. You look right at home in front of the ole flattop.

  2. Looking good at the grill, George. Like you never left! Safe travels in the morning.

    1. That's what it feels like, the good old days, don't much miss the long hours though.

  3. Looks like you enjoyed the pancake breakfast as much as the diners. Safe Travels!

  4. Nice to see you using those flipping skills you mastered in your restaurant. Must have felt strange to use a grill different from your Weber... :cD

    1. Always loved the flat top large grill, so much you can do with it. Not convenient with the motorhome , but the Weber works awesome for what we cook camping.

  5. The pancakes looked delicious! That's a lot of flipping in just a couple of hours. Travel safe!

    1. The pancakes were wonderful, in just a few minutes I was right back into the restaurant groove again.

  6. Awesome! Nothing like a pancake breakfast to start the day!

    1. Sure did the trick for a couple hundred people here and free is good too.


We love it when you take the time to drop us a line.
