Who needs pineapple upside down cake, when you can make pineapple upside down pancakes for breakfast?

Throw on a lei (flower garland necklace), make some pineapple upside down pancakes and pretend you’re in Hawaii for breakfast. Seriously though, sometimes using a little bit of imagination can make things more fun. As cheesy as it sounds, I often make different cuisines and I will pair dinner music with the origin of the cuisine. On taco Tuesdays for example, will listen to some Mexican music.

If we are having something New Orleans inspired, I will gladly listen to some blues., Which I absolutely love by the way. Especially Christmas blues music. Quick little fact there, ha ha sometimes I like to sneak those in.
