No-Flip Blackberry Buttermilk Pancakes & Costco Deals and Finds

This morning we woke up early. We had heavy rain and storms overnight and before we even got to have breakfast this morning, the torrential storms, thunder and lightning began again. I kept my fingers crossed that our power wouldn't go out before our breakfast was ready (thankfully it didn't). This past week it has felt more like we are living in a rain forest than suburbia. For breakfast, I decided to make my No-Flip Buttermilk Pancake with fresh blackberries that I picked up at Costco yesterday. While the pancake was in the oven, I cooked some bacon to go along with our pancakes. It turned out delicious with fresh blackberries.

When I made my run(s) to Costco this weekend, I found fresh wild Alaskan Coho Salmon for $8.99 per pound. This is the first that I've seen it this year, but this is the beginning of the season. I also found their 3-pound bag of walnuts on sale for $3.00 off making them $14.99 for 3 pounds (the sale goes through Sunday, August 30th if you are interested). I picked up some large wild sea scallops, and beautiful steaks as well. If you like ground golden flax, they had their Stober Farms (formerly USA Flax) 3-pound bag on sale for $2.00 off making it $5.29 for 3 pounds. I picked up some fresh produce; organic fresh baby spinach, brussels sprouts, fresh raspberries and blackberries and other odds and ends. I used the blackberries in this morning's No-Flip Blackberry Buttermilk Pancake. I snapped a photo below.
