Sunday Morning Special: May Foodzie Box

I know. I'm a little behind with this. The Foodzie box always arrives so much later than it used to that I can't seem to fit my tasting of the product in before the month ends anymore. The box I selected last month was the Springtime Brunch box.
It contained:

  • Bunnery O.S.M. Pancake and Waffle Mix
  • Grade A Maple Syrup from NH 
  • Lemon Curd
  • Marinated Goat Cheese
  • Italian Butterhorns

Though I took a picture of them together, I did have the maple syrup with the pancakes. If you've read my About page, you know why I didn't have any maple syrup. Anyhow, this pancake mix was good, but goodness was it grainy. There's millet, sunflower seed and oats in there on top of being made with wheat flour. I made three smaller sized pancakes and was stuffed. While I liked this mix, I'd definitely still pick homemade buttermilk pancakes over the super grainy pancakes.

I experienced some nostalgia when I had a nibble of these yesterday. They reminded me of something my Greek grandmother and I used to bake with leftover pie dough. As such, I like them quite a lot.
I do love goat cheese, so I'm quite pleased to have this. I haven't gotten around to trying it yet, but I will most likely have it with the homemade rosemary crackers that I made.
I put the lemon curd on my pancakes, and while I like lemon curd, I think I prefer mine a little thicker. This was a bit soupy. It worked out well for pancakes though!

Do you like pancakes or waffles? Buttermilk or grainy? What's your topping of choice? Lemme know down below!
