Have you guys figured out yet that I love when people play with their food?
Jenni and Jim are my favorite pancake artists but Dan is getting a shoutout here because it looks like he’s doing it in a restaurant and not just in his own home for some kids. Beware that some of the pancakes are not PG-13…there is some language and pictures that are not for your kids. The multiple Mario-related pancakes are worth the click-through, though. :)
I don’t really do anything for Valentine’s Day usually. I made pink heart shaped pancakes for the girls one year, if I recall correctly, although that easily could’ve been just a random day where I felt like showing them I cared enough to spend some extra time on breakfast. That just goes to show how important this holiday is to me, huh? Ha.
I do end up seeing a lot related foods around every single holiday, though, and V-Day is no exception. Just how many heart-shaped cookies can there possibly be in the world? Hundreds of thousands, according to my feed reader.
So I especially liked this idea to help balance it out. Instead of focusing only on the dessert side, this one simply involves cutting some carrots and tossing them into a soup. In this case, it appears to be chicken noodle soup and I love the simplicity of it. <3
Sophistimom did a really awesome tutorial on how to easily create the hearts without doing it individually, too, so check her out.
And in case you would prefer a dessert, how about some manly cookies?
