Tomorrow is Lumberjack Day!

That's right! Lumberjack Day is on September 26. How do you celebrate? With pancakes, silly!

Want to make these Party in Your Mouth Pancakes for Lumberjack Day? Of course you do!

There's also a delightful video if you want to see how it's done.

2. In a small bowl, whisk mix, egg, vanilla and 1 tablespoon of vegetable oil together. Add to dry ingredients and mix well.
3. Heat remaining vegetable oil on a griddle or skillet over medium-high heat. Scoop batter out in 1/4 cup increments. When pancakes get bubbly, dry around the edges and lightly browned on the bottom, flip over and cook the other side until lightly browned, about 3-4 minutes.

Lumberjack Day also has a comic book! And my peep Marianne Ways (co-founder of Lumberjack Day) will be at the Small Press Expo in Bethesda, Maryland this weekend with copies for sale!

So get on your flannels, whip up your pancakes, and celebrate Lumberjack Day lumberjack style.

Who doesn't love a holiday? Especially a new one where you celebrate in flannel face down in a pile of flapjacks?
