Pancake Dinner

Hey Everyone-

This wasn't so much a food visit as a study break at college. But there was food. And it was awesome. I will let the pictures speak for themselves on this one honestly, because basically all it entailed were firefighters making us some delicious pancakes!

Chocolate Chips


Chocolate Sauce

Syrups of all sorts

Three types of milk and two types of juice

The Grinnell humance society brought in therapy dogs for us to pet! One such adorable example, above.

They also gave us tons of games- the event was in the auditorium. Above, hungry hungry hippos

You can see their dispenser on the far right, which rolled on tracks and dispensed batter from a reservoir. Very cool.

My friend Collin brought in Nutella with which to slather his chocolate chip pancakes. This was the best idea ever.
