Someone had a birthday today.
That same someone has been talking about her upcoming birthday for....well....months.
We've regularly read Henry and Mudge and the Best Day of All - and each time, Yael has reminded me that she wants a birthday breakfast "just like that."
So this morning, she reminded me again.
As we prepared to make the pancakes, she said, "wait! I have to go get the MENU!"
She ran to get the book....
I checked to make sure that, although not in the picture, coffee was an acceptable part of the breakfast menu (phew, it was) and then I set out to make the pancakes.
I used this recipe, since it is quick and easy. Thanks to my pal FrumeSarah for introducing it to me!
One Cup Pancakes (adapted from Jamie Oliver)
2 cups whole wheat pastry flour
2 cups milk
2 tsp baking powder
pinch of salt
glug of vanilla
Mix it all together, let it rest for a little bit, and then cook like pancakes.
Serve, according to The Best Day of All, with butter, syrup, and strawberries.
It causes happy sticky faces.
Other birthday posts coming soon...
