Original request was “wrapping paper,” but that was a tad complicated to say the least. Lots and lots of presents to go under a tree was the second request. This is the year we ruined our son.
Tips: A sprinkling of miniature M&M’s is a great way to add a touch of color on special occasions.
Dedicated to the ginormous evil crow who perched on my shopping cart and searched through my grocery bags while I was busy buckling Avery into his car seat last Saturday morning. Avery laughed hysterically as he watched me waving my arms, swatting wildly at the bird who then perched on the hood of my car taunting me. Beware the Kroger birds lurking on the side of the building – they will hunt you.
Avery thought this little escapade to our greatest adventure yet, so naturally, a “crow” is what he requested once we got back from the store (we had run out of pancake mix).
Tips: Sausage links can be useful as thin elements protruding from the central pancake. Think little legs, claws & whiskers.
The refrigerator was still empty from our recent trip, so I was forced to use what I had in my pantry: a can of nuts, an apple, and a box of raisins. Carving an apple with a dull knife was harder than I had expected.
Tips: Nuts are a great source of protein and when combined with fruit are even better. Hair texture was created by dabbling spots of batter on griddle, letting them sit for 30 seconds, and then continuing to pour the rest of the shape.
