Natalea had to go to the pond to gather up some water for a school science experiment. This lil guy is what she found and brought home. I hope he made it through the night so they can bring him to school today. I may just drop them off even.
He's less than 2 inches. I should have had a ruler behind him. I did check his underbelly and discovered he's a painted box turtle. The first thing the kids asked was if he was a snapper or not...I guess they didn't want to get bit. HEH!
Electric frying pan pancakes are the BOMB! Ever since I was knee high to a grasshopper, I have been enjoying my pancakes in the electric frying pan. You just can't get the same effect from the stove. EVER.
You see how the edges get crispy...the trick is to let your vegetable oil get hot before you drop your batter.
This variety happens to be pear pancakes. Pears cooked with cinnamon and sugar, then frozen, and thawed to add to my 'cakes. Damn good.
That's all the education for today folks!
Happy Monday to you...Here's to a productive week!
