Happy Thursday! Rather than showing my food for today, I’m going to show all the fun activites and food I ate on Monday Monday was a lot more exciting than today.
Two of my friends from work and I went to Slappy Cakes for breakfast! I had never been there before and I was in love.
It’s a breakfast restaurant where you make your own pancakes at your table!
See the board in the picture above? The pancake-frying-area was underneath that.
We ordered three different kinds of batter…
Buttermilk, sweet potato, and PEANUT BUTTER!
We got four different toppings to share….
Whip cream, banana slices, chocolate chips, and blueberries.
We started out simple…
And then got a little crazy…
Yes, I made the letters “PB” out of peanut butter batter.
Check out this cat:
And this Christmas tree:
And this zebra and mermaid:
It was so much fun and we all left with full tummies! We didn’t quite finish all the batter and I considered just guzzling the peanut butter batter. That’s okay, right?
Aren’t we cute?
Later in the day, we had our annual Diner Christmas Party!
We did a white elephant gift exchange. I’m always giving my coworkers crap for drinking soda at work, so I brought a pack of soda sweetened with stevia (instead of sugar) and chapstick because I’m the chapstick queen.
I ended up with this:
THAT’S RIGHT, TWO TRADER JOES PEANUT BUTTERS! People knew not to steal it from me because I’d be upset with them for the rest of my life. The gift also came with peanut butter cups, chapstick, a chocolate bar, and peppermint pretzels. All from Trader Joe’s!
We also played a game in which everyone puts a plate on top of their head. The diner owner called out directions of what to write and we got points for certain things.
And then there was food….my favorite part of every party.
Ham, pickle, and cream cheese rollup.
Ham, scalloped potatoes, fruit, veggies, and a roll.
Best of all…the dessert table! I made the pie on the top right. It was a peanut butter mousse pie with oreo crust and topped with more oreo crumbles and peanut butter drizzle.
You can hardly tell I’m in the picture above…but that’s me with my hat pulled over my head….
I love all of these people so much.
