this was a couple of saturdays ago, but i think it embodies what saturdays in general should be like. for lunch (because who wants to go through this much trouble at breakfast time) we made pumpkin pancakes. and with the aid of a 97 cent squirt bottle, we made super exciting pumpkin pancakes. there was also a dinosaur and an elephant and an assortment of other semi-unidentifiable pancake blobs.
we used to do shaped pancakes on saturdays in college. i think it started with watching the lost room where in the opening episode the dad makes elephant pancakes for his daughter. those were good times. the pancakes didn't often look like much, but it was still a lot of fun.
