Maple Leaf


Got this as a gift yesterday. What a neat bottle! Pancakes usually are not a part of my morning regiment. Sometimes, on weekends when I'm weak and Elenka dangles tempting blueberries at me, I'll commit the sin and partake. Saturdays usually finds me wrestling with an English muffin or two. Raspberry jelly along with peanut butter usually does the trick. Now, if there's a warm, cinnamon-raisin bagel in the vicinity, I might take a gamble. Otherwise, I might have to sample this bottle soon.
Why am I thinking the Stanley Cup Playoff looking at this? Heck, the Maple Leafs didn't even make the grade this year. Still trying to recover from the stunner last year in Game 7 with the Bruins, I guess.
Lord Stanley's fun has begun!
Go Bruins!

  1. That really is a cool bottle. Wonder what's inside it? Yes, a sample, or two, is in order I'd say.

  5. I have pancakes or french toast a couple of times a week, and love them. The taste of real maple syrup (not the kind of plastic bottle crap you find in a grocery store with Aunt Jemima on it) is pure heaven.

    As to the Leafs? Well, I'm not a fan of the team, never have been. I must admit, though my team didn't make the playoffs either, it was amusing watching them move ahead of the Leafs at the end after a rough season. And the Leafs themselves are the Chicago Cubs of hockey... though the fans don't seem to grasp that.

  10. Nice shot. I like that you placed it on a window ledge, so you can see the outdoors in the background. As far as syrup goes…can't touch the stuff, unfortunately.

  11. Actually I much prefer my pancakes at night rather than for breakfast.

  12. I love that bottle! I don't think it would look as pretty without the syrup, but that would not stop me from eating it.

  13. Now, THIS is a fine bottle. I rarely eat pancakes or waffles or anything else needing maple syrup, but when I get the chance, it is a happy treat.

    Don't need to worry about the Maple Leafs this year, though that leaves many other teams to worry about.
