Last Saturday was a delicious one. The early morning started off with pancakes, even better, Mickey Mouse Pancakes. This area of cooking is my dad’s specialty. We left it to him while the girls “got ready”. Pecans were cooked in the batter and “authentic” maple syrup was drizzled on top. Everyone left the tables with their stomachs satisfied.
Below is a picture of pancake as it begins to brown. The smell is all throughout the house by now.
Add some rasins for the eyes and nose!
The grown-ups had a stack of regular pancakes, but they were still just as yummy!
Afternoon rolled around, and I summoned up the courage to throw together some egg omelets. I had never made an omelet before, and the idea of flipping the eggs without it crumbling into pieces was not an optimistic thought. I gathered the ingredients and my three-year-old sister and I went for it. My sister can crack an egg almost as well as me. I am convinced; she is destined to be a chef. My family and I naturally call her “the Little Chef”, but my favorite name for her is “Princess Chef”. The omelets were delicious. I chopped up a red pepper and grated white cheddar cheese. Everyone wanted seconds!
Popcorn: What better way to the end the day? My dad spread out the futon and we laid our sleeping bags across the top. Sprawled out on the futon, watching a movie, dad announces that it is time to make some jiffy pop popcorn. My sister’s eyes grew wide as the aluminum foil grew into a giant dome.
I hope your mouth is watering by now…It should be. I hope our next Saturday is as “savory” as the last one.
