Pancakes, Hibachi and Ice Cream

Just about every weekend the kids request pancakes for breakfast.  This morning I made some of my favorite pancakes, BACON with Granny Smith Apples.  The pancake batter that I use is from the Better Homes and Gardens cookbook.
Here is the recipe:
1 cup all purpose flour
1 tablespoon sugar
2 teaspoons baking powder
1/4 teaspoon salt
1 beaten egg
1 cup milk
2 tablespoons cooking oil
I normally add a little extra flour or milk depending on how thick you want the batter.
For the BACON and Granny Smith Apple pancakes I cook the bacon so it will crumple up easily.  The apples are chopped to about half inch cubes.  First, I add some butter to the pan and then pour out the pancake to about ten inches.  Let it cook for two or three minutes until it looks like it is cooked halfway through and then add the bacon and apples.  Flip the pancake over and finish cooking it.  I have added lots of other things to pancakes, very rarely do we have just plain pancakes.
The other ways we have had them are:
chocolate chip

For lunch we went and had hibachi at Kanki at Crabtree Valley Mall .  I had the chicken hibachi and then ordered the Kizuna sushi roll also.

And, to wrap-up our day of eating that it was turning out to be we went to one of the best homemade ice cream joints around and it is Sunny Sky's Ice Cream on Highway 55 in Angier.  If you show up at this place in the middle of the summer on a weekend this place is hopping with lots of people.  They have over ninety flavors and two of them are filled with heat.  The Exitwound and then Cold Sweat which is the one you have to sign a waiver for.  Between the four of us we had Caramel Praline, Key Lime Pie, Watermelon Sherbet and Cotton Candy.  They have been featured on Food Network show - Kid in a Candy Store.  If you are in the area you need to stop and check this place out and don't forget your cash or you are out of luck.  Cash only.
