I decided a long time ago that I’m not a pancake person. It’s not that I don’t like to eat pancakes. I just hate making them. You have to stand over the stove watching them for a long time, and I always burn them or don’t cook them all the way through or make them look really ugly when I flip them. Eventually I decided to stop trying. At about the same time, Dave started making delicious belgian waffles. We haven’t had waffles since our move because we still can’t locate our waffle iron. Happily, I found a baked pancake recipe in one of the cookbooks I received for Christmas. We tried it out, and they’re great! Baking pancakes is SO much easier and faster!
This morning, Sam helped me make up a pan of pancakes (he did all of the stirring). Once they were out of the oven, I used our dinosaur cookie cutter to make some dino-pancakes. Sam was EXCITED! Here’s what he said:
(picking one up) Sam! Brach-y-saur!
The little guy was right! The dinosaur cookie cutter is a brachiosaurus.
