However, dear readers, I was also a teensy bit afraid. You see, I am only an amateur nom artist (aka, chef) and the one other time I attempted pancakes, they were burned on both sides and soup in the middle. Yum.
This time, I asked my mother (our Head Nom Artist) to give me a nice recipe for pancakes, so she gave me one for whole-wheat buttermilk pancakes. Me being me, I added banana and chocolate chips into the mixture too.
A more complicated pancake recipe the world has never known! And yet, surprisingly, the pancakes turned out great. But it was torture waiting for each batch to finish cooking. And you know how I get when I'm bored...
I also did a rough sketch based on an old photograph of Beyoncé... I'm not at all happy with how the hand turned out, but the face actually looks semi-female for once.
The light was lovely in this photo, even if the background is only ho-hum. Willa is my mascot for all things crafty/culinary.
A very enthusiastic mascot, I might add. *rolls eyes*
Finally, the pancakes were finished. Joy to the world! I had reached my goal: one picture-perfect pancake stack.
And to smoothly transition from the world of Nom into the world of Chickens, I give you the following photograph:

|Roxanne's pretty feathers.|
|Helga says, "what'choo lookin' at, punk?"|
|For those of you familiar with the deadly penguin...|
|Yes, Hildegard, you are very pretty. Rawr.|
|Willa: do I eat it... or run away from it?|
Good thing there was a screen between these two or they probably would have been chasing each other!
Finally, some miscellany:
