Jay said...

You can never have enough syrup!

Jen said...

Alli: No. Not really. But(!). . . T asked me to pick up "syrup" while I was at the grocery & he made sure to write down, "NOT MAPLE SYRUP". . . oh wait, I digress. . .

He did ask for syrup and when I went to buy some they were on sale for 4 for $4.50, where they are normally $3.50 a piece. I just saw "bargain" in my eyes!

Jay: the husband would agree!

Hahahahaha. I don't think I have ever purchased a bottle of syrup. Ever. I don't really do the breakfast thing right now. My morning schedule is pretty cramped - I get up with just enough time to throw on my clothes and do my hair and run out the door. (I have even started showering at night to be able to accommodate this routine more easily!)

PS Today's word verification word? Fejuce. I am wondering if that is like a new kind of strength/energy/health juice that has iron in it (hence the Fe). I'll look for it next time I'm at the store.

Em: funny thing is, is that I don't really like syrup. I love maple syrup, but I don't typically use it either. It's the husband who does. Although, lately, I've used it on the waffles I made - trust me, they needed syrup!

Even at IHOP I eat the pancakes plain. I know. No one has to remind me that I'm weird. thankyouverymuch

Valley Girl said...

LOL!!!!!!!!!!!! Did you make a Costco pit stop?

Jen said...

Valley Girl: Embarrassing enough, no. I got them at the good ole fashioned grocery store.

Costco would've been a great excuse, no?

Alli said...

I love, LOVE real maple syrup...especially from good ol' NY state....Canadian is good, too...I guess. Mucho better than the artificial. Funny, I think my hubby prefers the fake syrup, too. Weirdenss! ;)

Sometime you'll have to try plain pancakes or waffles with peanut butter AND syrup....it's amazing! The hubby & his dad introduced this to me. I only put it on ONE pancake occasionally, b/c obviously it is not light in calories...but dang it's good!

Ok... now I'm craving some Waffle House pancakes... Yummy!

Jen said...

Alli: The husband does that! He loves syrup and peanut butter mixed together! I've never had the cajones to try that myself. . . you say it's good?

r.e.h.: I know! ***yum***

Ian said...

I think you probably have enough syrup now that if you try it with peanut butter and don't like it you won't feel too bad about throwing it away. Sounds disgusting though.

Alli said...

OMG! At first I thought it sounded so disgusting, too. When I was having breakfast with Hubby, his Dad, & TT at their house & that's how Hubby & his dad were eating it, I felt I had to try it. IT IS SO DELICIOUS! Dangerously so....

Try it....even if only once.

I wonder if T got that from S? S got it from his dad.

I thought maybe you were pregnant and having some sort of craving :P

butterfly girl said...

Does the hubster's like waffles with that syrup or pancakes?

Simply Curious said...

Leggo my Eggo :P

Jen said...

Ian: this is true. I'm just afraid to try it, for the following reasons:

1) it doesn't look good
2) it doesn't sound good (or it didn't before)
3) it is mucho, mucho sugar (as if I need more of an excuse to be a spaz)
4) can I say fat grams? Or even calories?
5) I may just end up liking it and want it always. . .

Come to think of it, you got me to consume haggis & I liked that. Hmmm?

Alli: see? You're a girl and I'm more inclined to trust you. I may try it some day.

I don't know where T got it from? I didn't ask. You might be right.

Princess: OMG! You said the "p" word followed by "craving"!

Butterfly Girl: the husband will pretty much eat any kind of fake syrup with his waffles or pancakes, but, surprisingly, this stuff is pretty good!

Simply Curious: ***waiting by toaster to grab it before you*** LOL!

Jen said...

Alli: the husband said he learned that mixture from his dad. It must be a dad thing; however, I never saw my dad do that. Of course, we be from the northern states, so. . . .
