Pancakes & Haircuts

Happy National Pancake Day!! I wanted to post this before I post pictures to give you a dinner idea and a great pancake recipe. We are going to have banana pancakes for dinner tonight in recognition of National Pancake Day!!

Banana Pancakes

1 c of flour
2 -1/2 tsp of white sugar
1 -1/4 tsp of baking powder
1/8 tsp salt
1 egg beaten
2/3 c of milk
1 Tbls and 1 tsp of vegetable oil
1 ripe banana - you can pretty much add any fruit you want to this recipe if you do not like bananas
****I forgot to mention with the banana pancakes I add 1 tsp. of cinnamon and a pinch of nutmeg.*****
1.Combine flour. sugar, baking powder, and salt. In a separate bowl mix together egg, milk, oil and bananas. (An easy way to mash bananas is to put them in a Ziploc baggie and mash with your hands.)
2.Stir flour mixture into banana mixture, batter will be slightly lumpy.
3.Heat lightly oiled pan over medium high heat. Use about 1/4 scoop of batter for each pancake. Cook until golden brown on each side.

Soooo yummy!!

Today Hanna got a haircut! Hanna has not had a haircut for 2 1/2 years! Her hair is down her back and since I cut my hair she says she wants to cut her hair short too...so cute! Then Ava will get her very first haircut! I will post before and after tonight. ****Also I needed to add that I forgot Hanna did have a haircut over Thanksgiving weekend but just a little trim.*****

Ava didn't get her haircut. This was taken before we went, needless to say her mood did not change and she was not having any part of it. So maybe next time!


  1. Very cute! Who cut her hair? I'm wanting to get Nikki's cut but I don't want to do it myself. I remember some of the hash cuts I got when I was a kid. I don't want that to happen to her ;)

  2. Rebekah Lawes in our ward. She was great with them and it was out of her house so it was really close. I recommended her!

  3. I thought it might have been her but wanted to make sure. I'm going to have her cut my hair as soon as I'm feeling better. Might have her do Nikki's too.

  4. It looks so cute. That pic of Ava cracks me up!
