12- pancakes and tweed

By spotogspindel | December 12, 2011

Yesterday´s activity was to make snowman-shaped pancakes for dinner…

Ok. Be honest. Does this look like a snowman to you?

Nope. I didn´t think so. I tried you see. But using a French crepe batch instead of an American pancake-batch, it´s ever so slightly harder to shape… 🙂 At least I can say I tried, right? And at least I put a smile on your face, right? 🙂

My “barrel of fun”. In a corner next to the couch I have all my silk and wool tweed yarn. I´ve been knitting and embroidering in the evenings. Partly presents, partly a long-term-project.

Today the advent activity calendar says:

The big tidy-and-clean-day.

I know. This is not the fun one. But it needs doing nonetheless. Play loud music, that always makes it into a dance. And think of how wonderful the house will smell when you´re done!

    Hmmm, perhaps I need to see the snowmen in your country before I comment on your pancake! 🙂

    Ha ha, well a snow angel perhaps, or maybe a snow-woman (she has a lovely skirt on). Good try though, especially with crepe batter!

    Oh I was looking for a religiuos epiphany. We have saints on our bread in the morning (I have a toast stamp with Dame Mary Someone) so why shouldn’t you have snowman pancakes? I think it looks like a snowman who has been left in the sun…
