Pancake time at House Party Headquarters!

Health insurance. Access to Facebook and Twitter. Stock options. Pancakes. That's right...pancakes. In my book, this is the most valuable perk of being a House Party employee! Every couple of months or so, Chris Morin brings in a griddle and we bring in our favorite ingredients to have an office-wide pancake breakfast. I don't know about you, but when I was a kid, pancakes were a breakfast-for-dinner, once-a-month kind of thing. Filled with chocolate chips, covered in maple syrup, surrounded by bacon (also covered in syrup)...I guess that was a smart move on my parents' part. Maybe that's why I'm so crazy about this special day! On the other hand, it's a really fun way to take a breather together before jumping back into our projects and the daily grind.

Check out some of the photos! Judge not our massive pile of bacon or the fact that there are some pancakes garnished with M&Ms. But you're welcome to covet Chris's interesting choice of spatula. Cool, me thinks it is.

For those of you having a flashback, last summer we asked our Facebook community what kind of crazy ingredients they'd like to see go into the pancakes. The results were...well, the photo speaks for itself. And we're not posting it here. Warning: strong stomachs only !

What's your favorite breakfast treat? Better yet, what should we make next time?
