The Legend of the Traveling Griddle

It seems that everyone is always so busy that it’s often hard to find a time to get together with friends so a couple of my friends made a standing date for the 3rd Sunday morning of each month to start our "Breakfast Club". Not only is dressing up for the occasion not expected, it’s frowned upon. Everyone is supposed to come to "Breakfast Club" in their pajamas (or at the very least comfy, cozy lounge clothes). The Club rotates between the four participant’s homes and generally starts about 9:00am. The host couple/family is responsible for making breakfast. We even bought a traveling griddle for the club. The griddle moves from house to house to provide and extra cooking surface for the hosts to make pancakes, bacon or French toast. The Breakfast Club has become an event that everyone looks forward to each month.
