5 little pumpkin pancakes

I’ve created little monsters (figuratively, of course. Literally, I’ve created little pumpkins). What I mean is that my kids wake up every Saturday asking for a “special breakfast.” Something with a face on it—or at least a dollop of whipped cream. (Double points if their breakfast includes a face AND whipped cream. Think Santa pancakes.) For my kids, every Saturday is something to celebrate: everyone is home together.

Last weekend we didn’t have much in the cupboards (Saturday is grocery shopping day!), but I was able to whip up five little pumpkins for my three little tootsie pops. Ideally, I would have turned the pumpkins orange by using pumpkin puree, but like I said, Saturday is shopping day. So I used orange food coloring instead. The kids didn’t seem to mind!
