Breakfast is the most important meal of the day, and nobody does breakfast quite like Americans.
Where most countries are content having pancakes on one day, bacon and eggs on another day, and French toast the day after that, Americans said: "Why have them all separately when you can have them all at once?"
However, amid lockdown, waking up and cooking a big breakfast feast for your family has become more and more of an arduous task. In fact, I've been eating bran flakes for the last eight days straight - and with every dull mouthful I'm thinking: "Why can't somebody just deliver me a big delicious American breakfast done right?"
Well, IHOP must have heard my wishes, because they are now offering a selection of Family Feast Meals that you can order online and get delivered straight to your door. That's right - turn the stove off!
There are four feasts to choose from, each one catered to a different morning craving.
The first is the IHOP Breakfast Family Feast, which comes with 16oz of scrambled eggs, four servings of hash browns, eight strips of bacon, eight sausage links, and your choice of eight pancakes, eight French toast triangles, or 12 Belgium Waffle triangles.
And despite the fact I typed that entire sentence while salivating on my keyboard, there is more.
IHOP is also offering the Pancake Creations Family Feast, which can come with either Sausage or Bacon.
Whatever meat you choose will come with eight buttermilk pancakes, four servings of scrambled eggs and hash browns, eight pieces of whatever meat you select, and a choice of two pancake toppings.
The pancake toppings include glazed strawberries, blueberry compote, chocolate chips, chocolate sauce, vanilla sauce, mini cheesecake bites, Lucky Charms cereal, Cinnamon Toast Crunch cereal, and Cap’n Crunch's Crunch Berries cereal.
And there is MORE.
Finally, IHOP is also offering a Lunch/Dinner Feast for those of us who can't be bothered to cook anything for the entire day.
This includes 16 pieces of buttermilk Crispy Chicken Strips with your choice of dipping sauce, a basket of mini churros and icing dipping sauce, and a basket of fries.
And if you want to make things a little sweeter, you can sub out the fry baskets for buttermilk pancakes or Belgium waffles - meaning you can construct your own IHOP chicken and waffles at home.
