Dessert for Breakfast, Lunch, and Supper!

You know what they say about eating dessert first, life being uncertain and all? Yesterday, we had just such a day: cinnamon waffles for breakfast, pumpkin pancakes for lunch, and blueberry clafouti for supper.

I'm sparing you all the embarrassment of not knowing how to pronounce that last one...click on it and hear the pronunciation. Let's just say that John's eyes widened when I told him what we were eating for supper. ;D

Alice at Tea in My Cup is responsible for my having the bright idea about Pumpkin Pancakes. I'm sorry that there are no pictures, but they didn't come out pretty — just tasty!

Oh, oh, oh, about the clafouti; if you've never tried it, you MUST today! Your family will thank you. D.e.l.i.c.i.o.u.s. You can find the recipe at Suzanne's on her August 26 post.

We're planning a much anticipated picnic for this evening's sunset. More about that tomorrow.

Hope that you have some fun plans for today, too! Please tell me what they are!


  1. My meals were a little on the desserty side yesterday as well! Fresh fruit, yogurt & granola for breakfast...and peach crepes for supper (we had a healthy lunch though...veggies and meat included). That clafouti looks yummy...I think I'll give it a try.

  2. Well that sounds like my kind of day, Vee! Yum-O!

    Good idea with the pronunciation link --I need something like that for everyday words too--lol--you wouldn't belive my Brooklyn accent!

    I've made pumpkin pancakes and they are good! I'll go and check out the clafouti recipe --I love blueberries!

    Will today be an all veggie day? :-)

    Hugs, Pat

  3. I love pancakes for dinner, my choice is always blueberry pancakes with wild maine blueberries :)...That blueberry thingie looks pretty nummy! I've seen so many blueberry recipes lately, I guess it's that time of the year to enjoy them. I love that serving spoon you have!

    Have a Wonderful Wednesday!
    Kathi :)

  4. I only have one question? Why weren't we invited????

  5. Yummy. If I could..I'd eat dessert all the time. Especially now with the high stress of our "little" water problem. Would love to have an evening picnic! Sounds so relaxing and romantic!

    Blessings to you and yours,

  6. And here I just blogged about being on a diet today! Your meals look alot more fun than my diet! Yummo!

  7. What a yummy post! My plans are to finish up the project I told you about and to check out real estate in a town 45 minutes away. There may be a move in my near future. Not sure how I feel about that. Have a lovely picnic!

  8. You had to do that today, just when I am trying to diet. I need to drop a few pounds before an upcoming trip. That whatever-it-is in the picture looks good enough to eat... and if you would please pass it through the computer, I would be most obliged. LOL...

    Happy Wednesday,

  9. yummmmmmy.....

    so, my plans for the day...well, already it is halfway through ...I golfed with my old guys earlier....now I am going to mow...then figure out something delicious with chicken for supper..... and after that...drilling some more holes in the side pieces for more cabinets.

    ps....eventually I will send you guys some more pics and send John the actual name of the jig and info about the company. ...honest....

  10. The cla .. . foo. . .tea (i listened) looks divine. I will certainly give that a try.
    For breakfast I had very healthy cereal and yogurt, lunch was pizza buns (homemade) and for supper we're having corn chowder and biscuits. .
    oh and I worked in my garden for a while. . deadheading those geraniums.

  11. Can I come to your house to eat?? I could eat dessert first, last and in the middle! Off to check out those recipes!

  12. Now that sounds like the perfect day of food!!

    It has been raining here cats and dogs, so I am just spending time in my studio....

  15. Yum! I make a cherry clafouti but I'm sure blueberries would be delicious too. I'm going to try it next week when my husband is home on vacation.
