Happy Valentine’s Day!
This morning, I was walking Lucy, and I was fondly remembering the days when my mom would make holiday themed/colored pancakes, so I immediately rushed home to whip up a batch of pink pancakes. (I actually used beet juice to color the pancakes to avoid the artificial coloring. Just kidding, I used food coloring.)
Note to self: Food-coloring-pancakes look much better with white flour. The whole wheat flour just made this turn out really weird. I started off making smiley faced pancakes, and while those were cooking, I got out the cookie cutters because I was making Luke’s lunch and I wanted to cut his sandwich into the shape of a heart. (I know, I am the best.) And then I found the heart shaped pancake cutters! I forgot about those! So in the mean time, I slightly over cooked the smiley face pancakes. I gave the kids the first batch off the stove and they were deemed, “sunburned on one side and really tan on the other side.) There was a lot of laughing. Then I moved on to heart shaped pancakes which turned out slightly better. They were delicious! My goal in every motherly thing I do is to create a memory that my children will look back on fondly, and the sunburned faces might do the trick.
The recipe is from this book, which I love.
