It’s a holiday and I was feeling ambitious, so I dug out the dinosaur pancake molds to make these…
The dinosaurs look a bit ratty but they passed the test for the boys who were so delighted to be chomping on dinosaurs that they forgot that pancakes aren’t really their usual fare. They are a bit more work than the average pancake – which goes against the grain of my usual effort (given the lazy bum that I am in the kitchen) but I guess they achieved their purpose since the boys were eating them and G1 even requested them for breakfast the next day. It never ceases to amaze me how easily novelty food wins the kids over…
