Sore Loser

I am sore from Bootcamp on Friday. But I loved it. I don’t think it fits in with my schedule long term, but I will try to catch it again at some point Smile 

I am a loser because I ranted about how I refuse to refrigerate my condiments on Tuesday.

And today when I grabbed the maple syrup for Pancake Sunday I noticed something weird…IMG_8449

It had mold inside! Boo. IMG_8451

I normally use the chemical syrup and Ben uses the real stuff. He obviously doesn’t eat it fast enough or this wouldn’t have happened. All the condiments I eat are consumed before mold ever has a chance Winking smile IMG_8452

Pancake Sunday!!!IMG_8442

Today’s batch included super ripe bananas. Who needs syrup when there is caramelized naner pancakes?IMG_8443

Okay, well I do. But it still makes them a lot better Smile 


Valentine’s Day / Tomorrow is my mom’s birthday! I’m cooking family dinner tonight and have grand plans for a pineapple upside down birthday cake for her!

Oh, and if you’re wondering – I’m still going to keep my condiments out of the fridge. I’d rather deal with a little mold once a while rather than cold toppings!

    Aww, sorry to hear of your mold! I’ve never had the sugar free chemical laden stuff, but real maple syrup is bomb! You’re missin’ out girl:)

    aw, boo! at least it was ALMOST gone… my maple syrup is in the fridge, but I take it out before I start making pancakes or whatever it is going on, and if needed I run it under warm water :)

    my ketchup.. I LOVE that room temperature. and I figure if restaurants do it, so can I! :)

    those pancakes look YUM!

    I always keep syrup in the pantry. Everyone thinks I’m weird for not putting it in the fridge but I hate how it gets too thick to pour. PS- I always use the SF too! I know how completely fake it is, but I can’t help it, it’s my one vice when it comes to chemical infused condiments.

    Maple Grove Farms is made in the town where my parents live! As for me, I like all my condiments COLD. I don’t mind room temp ketchup if I’m out at a restaurant, but I keep it in the fridge at home. Same with hot sauce, mustard, etc.

    i think it depends on the condiment for me. i usually like cold syrup on top of hot pancakes. or cold mustard on a hot burger. the hot/cold combo is gooooooooooooood.

    I like the chemical syrup too. It’s really one of the few chemical laden things that I actually like. And I don’t refrigerate my peanut butter. Is that a condiment?

    Syrup, peanut butter, and mustard in the pantry – everything else in the fridge. Hey, a little mold every now and then won’t hurt ya. 😉
