So Obsessed Saturday: Pancakes

Here in Olean, New York, there isn’t always much to do. However, like in any little city there are little gems throughout the town, and today I got to experience one of the best: Sprague’s Maple Farm. This place is just any breakfast lovers dream, because their breakfast is off the chain (and I don’t use that phrase loosely, so you know this is the real deal!)

What makes this even greater is that I love pancakes,as in the path to my heart is paved with pancakes.

Any time you order pancakes you automatically get an unlimited amount with your meal, which is quite sly on their part because it sounds so great – but you never have room in your belly fore more! So today I made a deal with myself that I would beat the house at their own game, and get an extra order of pancakes.

And that is what I did – because I am not a quitter. MY first order was three pancakes the size of my head, 2 homemade sausage patties (omg so yum), a plate of hash browns (also my favorite), and 2 scrambled eggs. the first set of pancakes I got where buttermilk and then on my second round I got 2 apple cinnamon pancake. And ladies and gentlemen that brings my grand total up to 5 head sized pancakes. So to say that right now I have a food baby would be an understatement, because it is more like twins.

I don’t regret my over indulgent decision because it is nice to treat yourself, and being a college kid a great ‘home made’ meal is something that can’t be compared to. Thats why I love pancakes os much because to me they are a little piece of home. Over the summer I went through a huge pancake phase, where I would come home from work and my mom would be supermom and make me pancakes at 9 at night. Therefore they are my go to comfort food. The best is when the center gets a little soggy from the butter because it is melted, and there is maple syrup dribbled on top ( I used to strictly be a chocolate chip girl, but now I’m ‘mature’ …hardly)

Also being away from home, it is always nice to go out with your closest friends and enjoy a good hearty meal. That, to me, is one of the simplest perks of life, a meal. To really enjoy not only the food but the company that you keep. Although it is not the same as being at home, comfort food anywhere brings you just that: comfort, and the people around you who care can bring you that too!

So there you have it, a little obsession and a little heart and soul on this saturday! Let me know what your comfort food is below!
