What do you get?

in breakfast,dinner,silliness

What do you get when you cross leftover Vegan Pina Colada Pancakes, a plethora of eggs in your fridge and a rare hankering for a McDonalds breakfast sandwich?

A Pina Colada Eggwich, of course!

Three pancakes, two eggs and one lovingly generous drizzle of real maple syrup later…

Do not underestimate the potent power of sweet + savory – this breakfast stack was an amazing collaboration of ridiculously yummy flavors, textures and hunger satisfaction.

What do you get when you cross an impatient Everythingtarian who just ran three miles, one frozen banana and a leftover 1/2 cup of diced pineapple?

An appetizer of Pineapple Banana Soft Serve, of course!

Sprinkle your concoction with shredded coconut, grab a spoon and taste just how easy it is to make your own sorbet at home. All it takes is a high-speed blender or handy dandy food processor and a hungry mouth. From my personal experience, both are pretty easy to find.

What do you get when you cross a good friend like Kristie who gives you a sample of Garlic Gold for your own culinary enjoyment?

A sample of Garlic Gold for your own culinary enjoyment, of course!

Trust me, it’s as delicious as the blog hype makes it seem.

What do you get when you cross said delicious Garlic Gold, an abundance of veggies in your crisper and a roasty toasty oven set precisely to 375 degrees?

That would be Roasted Green Beans topped with Caramelized Onions, of course!

Lightly coat the green beans in 1 t canola oil, 1 t Garlic Gold + a pinch of salt, and roast at 375 degrees for 20 minutes. While those do their thang, heat 1 T canola oil + 1 sliced onion over medium heat, stirring occasionally. When the green beans are lightly browned and onions are caramelized, heap the goods on a plate and devour!

So. Dang. Good.

What do you get when you cross a 25-year-old, curly-haired gal with the patience level of a 5-year-old, one renegade lock of hair that looks longer than the rest and a razor sharp scissors within arm’s reach?

This hawt picture of me in my sweaty sports bra.

I would add of course to the end of that sentence, but what would we really get out of that?

Hell yes on the pancake-egg sandwich!!!

Haha I love your pictures!! You are so gorgeous and I love your hair :D

Erica September 15, 2010 at 9:33 pm

That is a really fun breakfast sandwich. Andddddd cooked onions are amazin. I think I’m going to have to make some tomorrow night. Deliciousness. I cut my hair once…yah…didn’t go so well ;) Tomorrow is Thursday already!!

i want that plate of veggies. PLEAAAAAAAAAAAASE.

Madeline - Greens and Jeans September 15, 2010 at 11:07 pm

You are too cute, even in a sweaty sports bra!

What you get is one spunky, creative, and well-fed/exercised food blogger!

That pineapple banana soft serve looks better than even the most outgradeously loaded pint of Ben and Jerrys Ice Cream. Seeing that I have both canned pineapple and a frozen banana in the house, I will be trying this stat.

i miss mickey d’s pancake breakfasts. this sounds insanely good!

Mama Pea September 16, 2010 at 12:02 am

We are on the same wave length. Pineapple soft serve. Green bean fries. We rock.

Jessica @ How Sweet It Is September 16, 2010 at 5:15 am

I am dying to try some garlic gold!
And the picture of you is gorgeous, even with the stray hair! :)

Lauren September 16, 2010 at 6:02 am

I hear the garlic gold is to die for! How does one get their hands on some?

I love your thinking lately with this crazy crossings of foods. Pineapple and Banana Softserve sounds awesome!

Maya September 16, 2010 at 7:09 am

No, never underestimate the power of sweet+savory. That would be a sin. I recently discovered just how tasty sunny side eggs and pancakes are.

Rae September 16, 2010 at 7:23 am

Holy Moly – that pancake egg sandwich makes me want to eat my computer screen! It doesn’t help that i”m fasting for a blood draw later today. Dang it!

Lindsey @ Eat, Read, Run September 16, 2010 at 9:02 am

Sweet and savory is the absolute best!! And I truly love carmelized onions. I can’t believe I never used to like onions until a few years ago. Who was I?

Sami September 16, 2010 at 9:05 am

i’ve been loving heaping plates of roasted veggies too! falll is defff coming (if not here :)).

i’m foreseeing some pina colada ss in my future! delish idea.

Kailey (SnackFace) September 16, 2010 at 11:05 am

OK, that breakfast is INSANE. I need it. Isn’t it true that sweet+savory combos are more satisfying? They leave me craving nothing because I covered both bases. Because sweet+savory are obviously the only sensations needed.

Is garlic gold really that special? OK, I’ll believe you.

Um, what happened to your hurr? Love you in that sweaty sports bra!

Kailey (SnackFace) September 16, 2010 at 11:08 am

Oh ALSO!!!! This post reminded me of Paramour’s THAT’S WHAT YA GET WHEN YOU LET YOUR HEART WIN, WHOAAAAAAAH. Sang that in a capella last year. K that’s all!

janetha g. September 16, 2010 at 11:12 am

i love eggs and flapjacks! especially with runny yolks. good call. those onions look outrageously appetizing. you’re cute. i love it when we get to see your cute face! xo

Cindy September 16, 2010 at 11:23 am

MMM the pancakes look perfect. I just made almost the exact same thing for DINNER the other night. they weren’t pina colada pancakes but we did have pancakes and fried eggs for dinner.
Mine did have coconut on top (of course)


Megan (Braise the Roof) September 16, 2010 at 12:10 pm

Ohh breakfast sandwich. This would also be good with waffles…I need to make bfast sandwiches more often!! :)

Laura September 16, 2010 at 2:28 pm

Love it!!! That breakfast really does sound tasty….i’d never have thought of that combination working, as eggs and maple syrup aren’t a typical combo…but it certainly looks yummy! and … i must say, your hair is A-MAZING!!! xx

Megan @ The Oatmeal Diaries September 16, 2010 at 4:09 pm

I am DROOLING over this genius of a sandwich. The softserve sprinkled with coconut looks delish as well but I have to be honest… the pancake sandwich wins!

BroccoliHut September 16, 2010 at 6:01 pm

That breakfast is pure genius, my friend. I must copy that, pronto!

Sarah (Running to Slow Things Down) September 16, 2010 at 7:15 pm

You are master of sweet and savory breakfasts. Seriously. That is genius, and I am so making that on one of my weekend mornings this week. :D
