GO BLUE-berry Pancake Breakfast

After we moved out of the dorms and into our first apartments, houses, or sorority houses sophomore year, my freshman friends and I started a tradition that would continue throughout college of getting together one Game Day Saturday a year for a pancake breakfast. I was thinking of them this morning (noon) as I made these Lemon-Scented GO BLUE-berry Pancakes.

After perusing ALL my old photos for a worthy one to post, I have to ask my freshman friend buddies: Why are there NO photos from any pancake breakfast!?!

I've been forced to resort to a select few embarrassing photos from freshman year - consider it punishment for lack of more recent photos, and a few photos of our second favorite activity after eating pancakes - partying.

And, as an apology for posting these images, here's a montage from my pancake breakfast this morning... OK, it was after noon.

For everyone who didn't take part in the annual pancake breakfasts, I'll give you the option of skipping the rest of the images and getting your pancake recipe now.
