Top o' the Mornin'

Happy St. Patrick’s Day! I couldn’t resist the title :). Sunday morning we had pancakes for breakfast. Brett and I used to make pancakes a lot, but it had been a pretty long time. I’m a terrible flipper, so Brett assumed spatula duty immediately after I flipped the first pancake half up onto the side of the pan. Oops! Now I like pancakes as much as the next person, but my true motivation for making breakfast, was to show off my beautiful new breakfast plates from Harry and David. I’ve passively been looking for strawberry plates for a few years now just waiting for the right pattern to pop up. Brett and I were out shopping last weekend and I happened across these fruit plates. The even funnier thing is that while there is a strawberry pattern, I like the other patterns better! They were on sale (I’m so NOT an impulse buyer) so we decided to get one of each fruit (cherry, blueberry, lemon, and strawberry) along with a blueberry serving platter. I think the pancakes look gorgeous on the new plates, and I added some fresh raspberries on the side to give some extra color (and taste…yummy!)

I think you and I are going to have to shop for housewares together! I love the plates and I love keeping an eye out for stuff like that.
