Breakfast of Champions!

I don’t have a lot of recipes on breakfast because I’m usually pretty simple: smoothie or oatmeal in the morning.  That’s what I like best.  Recently, though, I had company over for breakfast, so I cooked up a feast!  It went so well, y’all.  I made pancakes, chickpea loaf, baked potato pieces, and fresh-pressed orange juice!  I must say I think I will be switching breakfast up more often.  I’ll tell you how to make the pancakes and chickpea loaf in this post.  Let me know what y’all think!
