IHOP – Sponsored Post and Giveaway

Our mornings usually start out pretty lazily. Well, lazy for the kids and me. The husband wakes up bright and early at 5am and is out the door by 5:30. Poor guy. The kids and I tend to sleep in (one of the perks of homeschooling, you know) and just grab breakfast (usually cereal or oatmeal) before we start our school day.

The weekends, however, are a whole different matter.

We still keep things lazy, and we certainly don’t set any alarms for Saturday morning. Most Saturdays involve the kids torturing their daddy awake with wet-willies and violent piggy back rides. You’d think he’d just learn to get out of bed before they can attack, but those few minutes of being pummeled and jumped on always seem to prepare him for the 48 hours of horseplay ahead of him.

I, of course, stay far away from the flailing elbows and pointy knees. The kitchen is much safer for me.

The kids always ask for pancakes for breakfast on Saturday mornings, and most weekends I’m happy to oblige them. Keep an eye out for the recipe for our favorite chocolate pancakes!

When IHOP© recently asked me to share my breakfast routine with you, I knew that I had to talk about our Saturday morning pancakes.

Unfortunately, our town doesn’t have very many restaurants, and the nearest IHOP is about 30 minutes away. This means that Saturday morning pancakes are almost always made by the mama.

I was excited to hear about IHOP at Home® Syrup! If I’m too lazy to shower and drive to IHOP, I can still enjoy their syrup.

We’ve been loving their Rooty Tooty Fresh ‘N Fruity® Strawberry syrup. It’s outrageously good, especially on chocolate pancakes. Who wouldn’t love the taste of chocolate covered strawberries for breakfast? And, no, I can’t say the name of that syrup without using a high pitched sing-song voice. It gets plenty of eye-rolls from the family.

Their Rooty Tooty Fresh ‘N Fruity® Blueberry syrup is a fun way to jazz your pancakes up, too. My husband would probably have a stroke if I put actual fruit in his pancakes, but fruit in his syrup seems to be okay. He’s kind of weird.

Of course, their Original syrup will always be the winner, in my opinion. It’s sweet and sticky and pretty much makes my mornings complete. I like to dip my bacon or sausage in it, too. That’s not weird, right?

    This is awesome. While I have an iHop close by, often the wait on Saturday and Sunday mornings is up to an hour! I love that I can get the same yummy tastes at home in my jammies!

    I think it’s a great idea! We don’t have an IHop close, so this is a great way to enjoy the flavors at home!
