Today is Tu B'Shevat!
In honor of Tu B'Shevat, we had green pancakes for breakfast. Aren't they pretty cooking?
I made a tree out of them. Yes, that's chocolate syrup. Why not celebrate? (Hey, chocolate comes from trees, technically!)
The funniest part: David refused to even let me do it. I had to dye only the end of the batch and I *had* to eat them myself! They were yummy.
Maybe I'll try green eggs next. How are you celebrating Tu B'Shevat today?
