 I made pancakes from scratch this morning and it didn't take me as long as I thought it would. Will be doing this again!
For lunch, we had: Micky Mouse shaped chicken nuggets and tater tots (I know, I know, but I was in a hurry to get out of the house, lol) At least I made a salad for my serving - Spring Mix lettuce with sliced strawberries, feta cheese and Kraft's Cesear Dressing - yummm!!

For dinner, we had my homemade pizza.
We went out for a hike while dad worked in the yard. When we came home, we had some rice krispie treats made with Malt O Meals Fruity Bits (aka: Fruity Pebbles). Eva made them all by herself!! It is the first time she has made anything from start to finish. I just stood by and coached.

Good Old Fashioned Pancakes

Prep Time: 5 Minutes

1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour

1 1/4 cups milk
1 egg
3 tablespoons butter, melted
1 tsp vanilla
2 tsp cinnamon (opt)
1. In a large bowl, sift together the flour, baking powder, salt and sugar. Make a well in the center and pour in the milk, egg and melted butter; mix until smooth.
