Magnolia Pancake Haus, Movies and San Antonio Botancial Garden

on April 30, 2013

Hi guys, once we finally got back into the swing of things we spent a little time on our first full weekend back with hubby’s mom and we went out to try the Magnolia Pancake Haus instead of our normal venue, Ihop ๐Ÿ™‚

Magnolia Pancake HausMagnolia haus

Kris ordered the southwest eggs benedict, had pulled pork instead of the Canadian bacon and had bbq sauce on top of the Hollandaise sauce, it was delicious, truly. The pork was a great compliment and the mixed sauces made this dish, yum!! eggsbenedict

On the side he ordered the banana foster pancakes, plain pancakes with aย  banana foster sauce. The sauce was a bit sweet for me, but hubby really enjoyed thembananafosterpancakes

My MIL ordered Magnolia Haus’ famous, Authentic Munchener Apfel Pfannekuchen and a side of bacon

It is a giant puffed apple pancake served with European style whipped cream and powdered sugar, this was really good and super rich, one bit was enough for me.


I ordered the corn beef has with over easy eggs, was delicious, really enjoyed it. The corn beef was a perfect balance of potato and corn beef and the runny eggs just made it awesome.


The corn beef also came with a side of buttermilk pancakes, they were really nice, nothing over the moon special but a nice pancake all the same.plain pancakes

I would definitely go back to the Pancake Haus, even Guy has eaten here, my only complaint was the weird seat covers in their bathrooms, lol!

And just a word of advice, get there early, this place really starts booming after 11am, wow!

After breakfast we realized there was a theater next door, so we went to see the new Evil Dead but before that we posed with the fun movie props, even though we won’t be seeing The Croods in theaters.

Hammin’ it up with the Croodscroods

Eek! This weird sloth is making a move, lol! weirdsloth

So as many of you know Evil Dead is a remake evil_dead_2013_by_myrmorko-d5j4g87

It was a Sam Raimi film and well it was so bad it became funny and also became a cult classic. This one was not funny and not a Sam Raimi film although he and Bruce Campbell did help produce the film.

It was pretty decent, it had been so long since I had seen the original I couldn’t remember what was new and what was old. But as a stand alone I enjoyed it, it was very bloody and had a good cast ( Jane Levy from Suburgatory is the main girl.)

I also liked that they changed big parts of the story ( I will refrain from adding spoilers.) My BIG complaint is previews, I know most people enjoy previews and I used to be one of them, but nowadays they ruin movies and shows alike. They gave away so much of the movie that some of the big parts, we already knew.

This is not the first time either, they ruined Quarantine and even the last episode of Dexter season 6 (I still want to write Showtime and give them a piece of my mind, lol.)

So if you haven’t seen any trailers, remember this is not the original Evil Dead and enjoy a good horror movie, check it out, I am sure you will enjoy it.

After the movie we left Kris’ mom and went to the San Antonio Botanical garden since I had never gone and it was a pretty spring day.

Map for the Botanical Garden


The garden is pretty large took us a few hours to do and even on a day in early April got pretty hot in the afternoon, I would recommend doing the garden in very early spring or very early in the day.

That was our day at the Botanical garden, it was really pretty and had alot to look at. Definitely a nice place to take pictures for spring with your family. If you have a chance before it gets too warm check it out, they even do night-time movies in the garden through out the year.

So that was our first full weekend back home, pretty fun-filled. Hope you enjoyed checking it out.

Aside from that, I am totally craving those pulled pork eggs benedict again. Ohhh hohhoho soooo good. Yum, yum, yum, yum.
