Results of IHOP's National Pancake Day

So, I got home from work and half joking asked my husband, "Want a free pancake dinner from IHOP?" His ears perked up as well as my daughter who accidentally overheard. I still had my doubts about going because of the anticipated long wait.

My husband called to see how long the wait was. There wasn't much of a wait. Then, I started going into frugal thinking mode. In order to get free pancakes for everyone, we would still have to pay for drinks unless we ordered water. My husband thought that would be a bit embarrassing though. Then, we would need to leave a tip for the waitress and make a donation to the Kid's Network. We were lookin' at $20 for a free pancake dinner. Even though it was for a good cause, I didn't want to part with my $20.

My daughter was looking forward to a possible pancake dinner. The solution was to just make pancakes at home. We pretended the kitchen was IHOP, had the girls place their order and we were their waiters. The girls enjoyed their pancakes complete with whipped cream, bananas, and chocolate chips to make a funny face. I saved $20.
