I sometimes think that my kids are hooked on carbohydrates. And, honestly, they get it from me.
My favourite breakfast is probably a big stack of pancakes with fruit and whipped cream. My eldest, easily, can eat six pancakes for breakfast. They aren’t tiny, either. I like to make fun shapes with the pancakes and then cute them up so the kids can drench them in syrup. I know, I know… not the healthiest stuff but whatever.
Anyhow, the other morning we finished off the syrup. And, as I flipped (my eldest usually flips until he has some that he can eat), I got an idea while staring at my empty syrup bottle…
Why not put the pancake batter into the bottle and squirt out some fun shapes?! Too bad my kids can’t read cursive…
They did, however, understand this one:
My pancake recipe is delicious and so easy to prepare for camping or other overnight trips. You just put the dry ingredients together and pack ’em along. You add the wet stuff later. I often use milk powder instead of milk, too.
Don’t forget about this contest!!! You have until May 30th, 2010 to submit your child’s art!
