And on the seventh day He rested…

Throughout the week I seem to have “Everybody’s Working for the Weekend” on repeat in my head. That lyric can’t be more of a true statement for me. For most of us, Sunday is our FUNDAY and it can’t get here soon enough. The day is meant for indulging in the things we love like; not setting an alarm in the morning, finally watching recordings that have been piling up on the DVR, lying on the sofa snuggling with your loved ones (pets included), etc.  Sundays we do what we WANT to do.

In my house Sundays mean pancakes! Without fail on the seventh day of the week we make this mouth watering treat to start the day off with a bang. We leisurely eat every syrup filled buttery tasting bite! Even after the last bite is devoured the scent is still traveling through the air reminding us “Slow down, take it easy, enjoy it, it’ Sunday.”

Enjoy your Sunday pancakes this weekend!

    Amy’s pancakes are fantastic! Sometimes a pancake mix-in can be overwhelming, but these have the perfect chocolate chip to pancake ratio.
