Happy National Pancake Day!
Yep, since 2006 the well-known breakfast chain restaurant, IHOP, has been sponsoring National Pancake Day. Today (Feb 28, 2012), guests at their restaurant can enjoy a free short stack of pancakes and the only request is that participants consider leaving a donation to the Children’s Miracle Network or other designated local charities. I'm thinking IHOP had a Good Idea.
I am familiar with the Children’s Miracle Network and their hospitals throughout the
through the Quilts for Kids organization where I make frequent donations. I was excited recently when I saw that a quilt that I had sent to them was posted in their website’s gallery with a lovely comment about its simplicity and colors. Click this link to see my quilt I called Hawaiian Party. USA
And would you like to know what the world record is for stacking pancakes?! Andy Wrobel stacked up 60 pancakes up to about 2 ½ feet to take over the Guiness Book Record.
Andy is in
, and cooks up his pancakes at a restaurant called the Pancake Parlor. The stack eventually collapsed but I’ll bet a good time was had consuming the structural components ... Yum! Melbourne, Australia
