This past Sunday I made my homemade pancake recipe (with white whole wheat flour, and flax). I decided to make the kids a surprise by making the pancakes into the first letter of their names. I couldn’t find a squeeze bottle, so I put some of the batter into a zip top bag and cut a small hole from the corner. I then piped out the letters onto the skillet. I found that cooking them on a lower temp made it easier to flip the letters (the tops could cook longer and were less runny). When they saw their letters, the kids were thrilled! Then I decided that the Monday pancake sandwich could be even more cool if I used these letters. I made two more of each letter and later that night spread some peanut butter and jelly between them. Voila! “Letter Pancake Sandwiches.”
Here is Asa’s lunch today: Letter Pancake Sandwich, Pumpkin Spice Cookie, Caramel Popcorn, raw veggie medley (grape tomatoes, carrots and broccoli), vanilla Yogurt with raspberries and vanilla flax granola. Yum!!
