A Winter Treat

Gentle Friends the mail brought a box of wonderfulness from my sister and her family the other day.... and I wanted to share it with you.  It was full of goodies to keep us going through the long Winter.  Here's a snap...

....  we were basically out of this super Pancake/Waffle mix from Snoqualmie Lodge, a great Northwest product that we think can't be beat!  

Here's a little blurb....."For almost seven decades, Snoqualmie Falls Lodge built a dining tradition at a quaint lodge overlooking the rushing mountain waters of the 268 foot scenic Snoqulmie Falls.  The old fashioned decor and the 'World Famous Breakfast' made Snoqualmie Falls Lodge a truly unique dining experience for visitors from every continent.  That legendary Snoqualmie Falls Lodge name lives on in 'World Famous Farm Breakfast' items."    Made by Continental Mills, a company based in Seattle Washington that has been making top quality products since 1932. 

Another Northwest goodie in the box was some of the best coffee around - roasted by Stumptown it is probably our favorite coffee - the "Hair Bender" - a dark roast is top notch!!  A true Portland original you can read the History about how this super coffee came about HERE.  Don't get me wrong there are some very good roasters here in SF, but we really like this coffee - and my sweet sister fixes us up when ever we are running low!!

There was also a tasty seasonal treat from Jagermeister, their new "Spice" version, a lighter version of the regular liquor - that goes down a treat!!
____________

So with all this deliciousness in the house I made us........


... "breakfast" for dinner last night!!  You can't beat pancakes and bacon with a splash of maple syrup ( I  prefer the darker more richly flavoured grade B over the lighter grade A's - Rico likes Mrs. Butterworth).

Thanks for stopping by do stop again!!

Take care,
edgar

Yum! What great treats!

We sometimes enjoy eating breakfast for dinner. (I'm not much of a breakfast in the morning person but I enjoy breakfast food.)

There is nothing better than breakfast for dinner, we have it often. Scrambled eggs, sausage and home fries...the only problem besides the high fat, is doing the three frying pans. I am with you Edgar I like real maple syrup ( NH), husband likes the "fake stuff". Sorry Ricco no taste..........

Mary said...

P.S. Sorry Rico, I didn't mean YOU have no taste...I mean the fake maple stuff. A thousand pardons...

I thoroughly approve of your choice of Grade B Maple Syrup. I got set onto it by a friend who loves to tell the story of who he got put onto it by a native of Maine who assured him it was "Strong-ah, Dahk-ah, and Cheap-ah." To really appreciate the story, you have to realize it was told me by a native of extreme south Georgia. I don't think Grade B is "cheap-ah" any more, but I do love the first two attributes. If you want to try a southern treat, look up Bruce's Sweet Potato pancake mix. It makes great waffles - and they go great with Grade B Maple Syrup.

I love having breakfast for dinner, actually I might do that tonight LOL

Vicky said...

Oh and I only buy the real maple syrup and here in Oz it is imported so a little goes a long way LOL

OMG you know what B grade maple syrup is (a sign of the true connoisseur) and you're with a man who eats fake syrup? Does he know how lucky he is??? ;)

Barb said...

What a great treat! We went up to see the falls about a year ago, very pretty. Next time I will have to get the pancake mix.

Kate said...
