Family Traditions

top8

We have a fun tradition when it comes to our grandkids.  All of them would draw a picture and I would make pancakes in the shape they drew.  I have done turtles, snakes, Mickey Mouse…..you get the picture.   Our older grandkids wanted to learn to make the pancakes so I taught them and they had a great time!

In these pictures they were much younger – 3 of them are out of high school already and in college!

We had the opportunity to watch our 5-year old grandson overnight.  He is an early bird.  He woke up with energy and was hungry.  This was before I had my first cup of coffee.  I cut up some cantaloupe to give him something healthy to eat and allow me to fully wake up before getting into the kitchen.

He drew this picture.  It is a donut.  I asked him what the spots were and he looked at me and said “SPRINKLES!”  So I set about my task.

He pulled out his stool and watched me begin the process – making the batter.

As you can see, it was VERY early.

He then asked if I could make donut holes.  So here they are!

It has always been one of my greatest joys to cook in the kitchen with my grandkids anxious for my creation!  I hope they carry on this tradition with their own kids.

Kids’ Corner

For the Kids’ Corner this week I say introduce this tradition in your family – have your children draw you pictures and make the pancakes.  If your children are a little older they can help.  It really is a lot of fun.
