Party Panache, Red, White & Blueberry Brunch!

What are you doing for Memorial Day? A picnic, or maybe a parade? We will be on the coast with family and I like to get a head start on food plans so our weekend will go smoothly~

I was playing around with some red, white and blue things the other day

and I got a little idea…

how about some mini blueberry pancakes

stacked with strawberry slices

and drizzled with blueberry syrup

and maybe some syrup on the side for dipping

and served on the porch of course

Now it won’t be quite this calm or neat around here over Memorial Day weekend,  with busy, noisy,  family members around, but it’s bound to be a lot more fun!

The pancakes pictured here were made with good old Bisquick, eggs, milk and fresh blueberries and Smucker’s Blueberry Syrup.

We even reheated some leftovers the next day in the microwave and they were delicious again!

    Hi Jenna~ I wish I had a mini stack of strawberry and blueberry pancakes this morning! Psychologically I always feel better about eating when it’s in miniature form, LOL! What a wonderful spot to spend Memorial Day with the sand, surf, and sun! I’m chuckling at your comment about only buying two, I’m an idiot too 🙂 Love your RW&B glass! I’m glad to Country Originals is still around under a new name, I thought Katrina did them in. I used to buy from them years ago, Happy Memorial Day to you & your family!

  4. I wouldn’t say you’re an idiot, but you SHOULD be flogged, tarred, and feathered for not getting more of those cool square plates!!!!!! 🙂 Somehow when I first laid eyes on the patriotic plates, I just knew you had created those. They’re neat!!! The stemware is, too!!! It’s so great that you have that talent so that you can custom-create like that!

    I’ll arm wrestle you for that fish vase. Whaddya say? 😉

    • Thanks Alycia, I’m not much of an arm wrestler so I think I’ll just keep my little fish vase!
      I have been worried about you in all the tornado weather these days, please stay safe!

    Oh, I don’t know what is more enticing, the stack of pancakes and berries or sitting at that darling seaside table. What a perfect spot for any meal!
    Had to smile at your “only bought two comment”. There are only two of us, so sometimes that’s what I do too. Usually a mistake! ‘-)
    Happy Weekend! ~ Sarah
