I won a contest last week on MommyMandy from Hungry Jack. I entered because the prize included 20 coupons for free syrup, and my kids go through pancake syrup fast. But it also came with a smiley face griddle, and my kids love it. Given their ages (17, 14, and 11) I figured it was no big deal, but they think it is incredibly cute, and insisted I make them smiley faced pancakes for lunch yesterday.
Meanwhile I picked up this weekâ€™s organic vegetables. I got lettuce mix, mesclun greens, radishes, kale, pea sprouts, beet greens, garlic scapes, and best of all sugar snap peas. After I made the kids pancakes I made myself a salad for lunch with lettuce, mesclun, radishes, sprouts, sugar snap peas and olives. The kids disagree, but I liked the salad better than pancakes, even smiley ones.
All the veggies cost $15.09, bringing my total for the year up to $46.99
