    Ironically, you won't seem many people hopping out of a IHop. Mostly they just roll their obese carcasses out of the premises. A lot of overweight IHop patrons, and it's not surprising (tasty, high calory food).

    It sounds like you are fortunate to have a great metabolism. :)

    Yes, food is one of my passions too. Some good pizza (Round Table or better) and I'm set.

    How dare you people besmirch the topic of pancakes with pastries, omelets and pizza? Where does it stop? Curry and barbecued ribs? This is madness. Waffles, crepes, and possibly blintzes and French toast are suitable side topics, but I take deep offense at these other items. And obesity should NEVER be brought up when discussing pancakes.

    Sometimes you just have to take a stand.

    I like buckwheat or buttermilk pancakes of medium thickness cooked on the dark side, fried in butter with more butter on top and real maple syrup. Berry syrups are nice, but I don't eat pancakes often, so I only stock maple. If I'm out, honey is ok.

    I have made them from scratch out of cheapness or lack of mix, and they were good but never fantastic (I don't keep buttermilk around the house). Perhaps if I had a great recipe I'd try again, but the ones I made weren't worth the effort. I have used heavy health food store mixes (arrowhead mills buckwheat and regular), which are good in a wholesome, filling way. The best regular mix I've had by far is Krusteaz. I would have never tried it on my own due to a distrust of cutely spelled food items, but they are dee-liteful. They just "improved" it and it's not as good as it was (old formula was crispier around the edges), but it's still pretty good.

    Pancakes for dinner! That was the best when I was a kid, but it didn't happen often. Mom would make syrup on the stove out of sugar, maple extract, and water. I sadly later figured out as an adult that, as a dinner option, it usually means you have nothing to eat in the house. Not literally nothing (hopefully), but very slim pickings. It's the happiest of desparation foods.

    Normally, I would tell you I got the idea from Idiocracy, but I can't because it happens everyday before my very eyes!

    No love for crepes or croissants ?



    Who are these delicious babes ? Are they single ? Would they like eating out with a tall Indian man who loves eating (unfortunately every thin)?

    Boy, they sure know how to live !

    I have no idea who they are, Senti. But this is not an uncommon sight in the US these days. I think things got worse in the past 15 years.

    If you go out eating with one of these, make sure you won't become part of the meal though. :)

    As for living, I think life should be enjoyed, but there is virtue in moderation. Too much of the "good stuff" will send you to an early (and roomy) grave. We call this here Living in the Fat Lane. ;)

    You surely must have fat people like these damsels in India, no?

    You haven't commented on this post.....

    I have never been in a duel where my opponent just forgot his Riposte, even in 18th Centruy France. In the salons there was a bit more urgency to dueling.....the Internet forums were different then too.

    Je m'excuse, monsieur. It was my impression your poor excuse for a thrust was more a joke than an actual attempt at a strike. I had, in my laughter, forgotten you. I can assure you, monsieur, I shall not take your earnest and misguided efforts lightly in the future.

    Yes, God does indeed eat individuals stuffed with pancakes; for all who devour such unholy substances ought to face the eternal wrath of Heaven--and punishment of much greater severity, that of infinite torment in the bowels of the Lord, is reserved for those who consume without pause, filling themselves with the breakfast of Baal. ;)

    I needn't mention Monsieur, that in the joust of jest, a strike with which our enemy is so enamoured that his thrust is thwarted, is the quintessential coupe.

    Hark! The howlings of a heathen! I wield with the Weapons of Waffle and will not succumb to your sickening sacriledge.

    Enamoured? Dear Sir, it was nothing of the sort, I assure you. Rather, I found your attempt humourous at best, depressingly pathetic at worst.

    Ha! Come! Scoundrel, come! Then--and only then--shall you and your perfidious forces, pandering to pretend powers in your pandemonium and pannick, see the only true pancosmic panacea: the Pantheon of Pancakes!

    Only if they load prior to a long run or some other endurance-oriented physical activity.

    Reading between the lines, i think Tom could be referring to something other than running, cycling or hiking.

    I think tom might be talking about the thing at the end of the acronym a.d.i.d.a.s.



    All day i dream about soccer, right?

    I have been to an IHOP near Del Mar in California a few times. The funny thing is that I have never tried their pancakes, but always ordered an omelette in the morning. The coffee was my biggest problem with the place, largely because it did not taste like coffee, but the omelettes were pretty good and sometimes a good omelette is all you need in the morning.

    ^^Yes their omelettes are very very good. Love em. Most of their omelette's come with pancakes here. Is that not the case there? You're missing out. Their pancakes are ridonkulous! :D I don't think I've ever tried their coffee but it smells bland so I'm not surprised it's not good.

    Dude,
    Carbo loading is supposed to be for marathon runners, no ?
    I don't think your occupation, physical as it is, qualifies for that kind of activity.

    You can't handle the truth...try pulling around up to 900 pounds of passengers and trailer some days as many as 3 marathons' total distance and tell me I needn't carbo load???

    You're beginning to morph into your sureshsian alter ego...that's not pretty!

    That's a triathlon, like. Or an ultra, yo.

    You are in a different league altogether from mere marathoners.
    Pancakes are not good enough for your needs, you need Indian junk food which has 3 times as many calories as any other cuisine :)

    My favorite is the one with bacon and syrup - I don't know if this is the proper translation but I mean this stuff:

    [​IMG]



    I remember Paul Verhoeven, dutch film maker, saying he's so happy to get this when he's back in Holland -to put on his pancakes- , because according to him in the US they don't sell this stuff. If that's the case, shame on them!

    Can't change your username when "professions" change...hopefully only a temporary hiatus from my stringing craft, which I honed over a much longer period than the current gig. Pluses and minuses to both, though.

    I went, I had 6 pancakes and 2 strawberry-vanilla crepes :lol:

    Krusteaz is the BEST :D hands down, awesome tasting pancake mix. I add chocolate chips or blueberries sometimes too.

    Tom will have to do 800 meter sprints with his 900 pound load to get any lactic acid buildup judging by his extreme conditioning.

    Hey Tom, are you hauling King Kong, or the Incredible Hulk ??? :twisted:

    You should also try those deep-fried PB and J sandwiches that Elvis used to have. Had like 5000 calories in them, yo.

    My max actually was a full half-ton...three offensive linemen from the VaTech football team. The "small" guy was listed on ESPN at 6-1, 285 and his two OT buddies were 320 and 325. Add the 70 pound cart and that's a flat grand! The ride was a full mile, thankfully with the slope and wind wasn't a factor. Done in 10 minutes and on to the next ride. It was a good night!
