FNB--Pancake fun

Last night was our "breakfast for dinner" meal at the Sweet Pea home. I once tried to use pancake molds on our pancakes, but I wasn't really happy with how they turned out.

So I tried a new trick with our pancakes that I wanted to share:First I put a little batter in a kitchen squire bottle...
...then I covered it with the pancake batter with sweet potato mixed in (unfortunately R was not a fan of the sweet potatoes in his pancakes, but I digress)...

...voila! Personalized pancakes for my Sweet Peas.

Of course G got one too!

Trust me, this sort of creativity and extra effort rarely happens during our weeknight meals. I had one of those wonderful days where the boys played well together, my stress was minimal, and I was feeling artsy in the kitchen.

What a fun way to put an extra special touch on dinner.

Have a great weekend,

PS--Happy Anniversary Mom and Dad!!!

Making pancakes like this is one of my first memories of "cooking" when I was a girl. I think I saw the idea in a circa 70s Strawberry Shortcake cookbook in fact, that I think my mom still has! Thanks for reminding me! And have a great weekend.

That is such an AWESOME idea, especially for our little preschoolers....and I think even my husband would be impressed with an "M" for him! You could do & put blueberries in the middle...I might need to make pancakes soon!!
