Maggie Mae's Pancakes
Why I Love This Recipe
The soft drip of maple syrup sliding down my stack of golden, fluffy pancakes was the start to one of my best and most memorable days. Thinking back a couple years to this will also send a ton of different images through my head. One of which is my brother being chased by half the seagulls on the beach! This day was a day I would never forget.
As we set up our chairs along side of the shore, my brother went straight to the food. “Remember last time we were at the beach, and a guy was buried with Doritos around his head?” my sister asked my mom and I. We nodded our heads and thought back to a guy shoulder deep in sand. Seagulls were diving in one by one, fighting for their food as the man’s friend kept throwing more towards him. Apparently, this gave my brother and the rest of us a different idea.
First, it started with throwing out some food and chasing the seagulls. We were young though and it’s what a lot of kids tried to do. Just running around we were having a lot of fun! After a little bit, though, we wanted to try something new. We took out a stick, some string, and some Cheez Its.
Carefully poking the string through a few Cheez Its and tying them up, my brother was off! He started sprinting back and forth down the empty beach, followed by at least 20 seagulls chasing the food at the end of the string. We watched him for quite a while, unable to stop laughing as the seagulls never gave up. It was a really funny thing to see.
Every year during spring or summer break, we go back to visit that beach. My family and I take one step onto that beach and start laughing and talking about that once again. I don’t think any of us will ever forget this. But maybe this or a new idea will even come up again.
I can remember everything from this day. Breakfast included!
