"For breakfast there were pancakes, and Ma made a pancake man for each one of the children. Ma called each one in turn to bring her plate, and each could stand by the stove and watch, while with the spoonful of batter Ma put on the arms and the legs and the head. It was exciting to watch her turn the whole little man over, quickly and carefully, on a hot griddle."
Today at school we made Pancake Men like the ones Ma made for Mary and Laura in the chapter called "Christmas" in Little House in the Big Woods.
We are quite sure Ma would not have used Aunt Jemima pancake batter or Pam spray but we did!
What will we eat next, inspired by the book?
