It's not my best effort and it got a bit crumpled when I flipped it, but Le Garçon still liked his tennis-themed pancakes the other day. He's really enjoying his weekly lessons and is even willing to go when it's cold and rainy (the lessons are on the outdoor court). Thanks to Georges for the idea; I already did a pancake turkey a couple of years ago and I was stuck for something new. Read more →
Latest edition to my growing stack of pancake (heh-heh) images: Every time I make pancakes, I try and make one special one for the Little Guy and so far I have never had to repeat myself.

I think I'm fighting something, although I don't really feel sick per se. Luckily for you, I didn't post what I'd done because it was the most incomprehensible shit I have EVER written. And you would have thought I finally flipped my lid. The title is the short version, but since I know you've been waiting anxiously for two weeks to find out if I totally burnt the bird or had lumps in my mashed potatoes... here's what REALLY happened. We got up extra-early (because when you're cooking turkey and you've asked your guests to arrive at 1pm, you have no choice) and got the first of the two Picard turkeys in the oven a little ahead of schedule; so far, so good.
