All You Can Eat Vegan Pancakes at the Wildflower Cafe and a Frosty Walk

We had a wonderful snowy weekend in Eastern Pennsylvania. Friday night I went to the Nawab Restaurant for vegetable samosas, aloo gobi, and mango lassi. Saturday it snowed most of the day, so I spent the day watching the Travel Channel and eating homemade vegetable noodle soup, occasionally stepping outside to shovel.

Sunday was all you can eat vegan pancake day at the Wildflower Cafe in Bethlehem. How can you go wrong? I had the banana, banana walnut, and cranberry pecan. By the time they brought out the blueberry pancakes, I was already stuffed!

The Wildflower Cafe is a local live music hangout. This picture captures the snowy sidewalk in a reflection.

Later I dropped by L.L. Bean for their end of season jacket sale and picked up a coat which should keep me toasty and warm! I tested it out on a walk along the Ironton Rail Trail in Whitehall, and I am happy to report that for the most part I was nice and comfortable!

A few feathered friends have a snack. Dozens of juncos, sparrows, a blue grey nuthatch, and a downy woodpecker were waiting in a nearby tree until I left. Later I saw a fat Carolina wren that looked like a feathery golf ball!

This water looks cold!
