Valentine's Breakfast.

I love Valentine's Day. I love spoiling the kids with heart shaped, pink & red everything & telling them how much I love them. B. & I kind of reserve the whole day for the kids & then have our time together after they are in bed. Dinner & everything.

So the kids breakfast consists of heart shaped pancakes with strawberry milk! I dip the rims of the cups in the Nestle Quik crystals to make them pretty, hence the red faces. This year I plan to get some of those heart shaped straws to stick in them. The pancake recipe is from adapted from Martha. Using butter in the pan really does make them extra yummy.

Heart Shaped Strawberry Pancakes
{adapted from Martha Stewart recipe}
1 cup all purpose flour
2 tablespoons sugar
2 teaspoons baking powder
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 egg, lightly beaten
1 1/4 cups milk(we like a thinner pancake)
2 tablespoons melted butter, slightly cooled
1 teaspoon cinnamon
1/2 cup thinly sliced strawberries (optional)

Mix together ingredients & place batter in gallon sized ziplock bag. Heat griddle then add 1 tablespoon of butter to griddle. Snip corner of bag & draw a heart shape on griddle with batter drawing the outer edges first, then filling in middle. Enjoy!
