First of all, I apologize for not posting recipes for such a long time. I honestly hadn't realize it had been that long . . .
This week, I decided do something special for Valentine's Day. The kids really enjoyed it, and it wasn't too difficult. Here's a picture of our breakfast.
Instructions: Fold bacon into a heart shape. Bake at 400 degrees for approximately 18 mintues.
I found this recipe here. I adapted it a little bit since I didn't have a squeeze bottle.
Instructions: Make your favorite pancake batter and heat your griddle. Seperate about 1/3 of the batter and add pink or red food coloring. Place the colored batter in a squeeze bottle or in a resealable bag and clip off a small corner of the bag. (NOTE: Make sure there are no lumps in the batter.) Pour the non-colored batter onto the griddle to form a pancake as normal. Fairly quickly "draw" a heart on the top of the poured pancake. Flip carefully when ready. Serve and enjoy!
It was a little tricky to flip the pancake without smearing the heart design. Next time I might try drawing the heart first and pouring the other batter on top. My 5 year old was slightly confused. He asked if I had put icing on the pancakes and then cooked it. He kept trying to figure out how I made them. I finally had to show him the bowls I mixed the batter in before he understood. He was too cute.
This is another idea I found . . . if you follow this link, you'll find some pretty amazing breakfast ideas!
