Who Says Marshmallows Do Not Belong In Pancakes?

We sure don't!

For Saint Patrick's Day, I decided to make a "special" batch of pancakes. This crop of carbs resembled Easter more than St. Patty's Day, but who cares, they were yummy. I had the intention of making green pancakes, but ran out of food coloring due to our frequent green eggs and ham breakfasts...oh well. So, now they were extra yellow, and my from-scratch pancakes resembled something super artificially colored and store bought. I asked the kids what to add to them, and one vote was for "Manemanems" (Hay) and one vote was for Marshmallows (Ry). We are well-stocked in Manemanems thanks to our current potty-training reward system. Thankfully, we had what it takes to make these Nom-Nommy pancakes.

Here's what they looked like in the pan... (pretending I have a cooking blog, clearly)

Final Result...YUM!

A Funny Thing Happened...

Today at School Pick-up I was presented with a "must share." The teachers were laughing very hard and were saying how this moment of hilarity would potentially be shared at the next faculty meeting.

Important to note: Frank, Camerina and Kate are all of Ry's teachers. "Zephyr" is a kid that he tends to like to "throw under the bus" so to speak. I love Z's mother, so I am hoping to see this trend end. Funny thing is... they play together at school sometimes, but I think they both refuse to admit to liking one another. Anyway....

The kids were asked to draw a picture of something memorable from their field trip to the San Mateo History Museum. Ry was very interested in the Indian Teepee that was partially covered by twigs and mud.

Then, they asked Ry to dictate to his teacher what is happening in this picture...

There is no recollection from Frank or Kate of this occurrence.

That's all.

And for my next project...

I'm actually VERY excited about this one. Now... who to give it to...

I have been a crochet-a-knit-a-maniac. More pics to come.
