This time I don't have to ask Messy what she wants for her bento, instead she told that she wanted french toast (AGAIN?). As I had already planned to make pancakes with the big Hello Kitty or Pooh Bear mold, I promised Messy that I'll make the french toast some other days. Lucky she wasn't unhappy about the change and in fact she was also very excited and happy to have a big Hello Kitty pancake！
Few days before sch term starts, I went to the supermarket to buy pancake mix. I don't have any particular brand that I prefer, I always like to try out different brands. Then I saw this interesting new brand whereby it comes in plastic bottle form, all you need to do is to add water to the water level indicated and shake for 1min. I find that very convenient, most importantly, so easy to mix the flour and water well. After finishing all the batter inside, I washed and kept the plastic bottle for future use.

Hopefully I'm able to get more even tone of the pancakes the next time so that the Hello Kitty or Pooh Bear face don't look so ugly and patchy.
*I made these pancakes on 29th June 2011, the second day when school term starts. From now on, I only need to prepare bento for the girls twice a week because Messy says that her school's time-table has changed, making her school bag too heavy to even squeeze in a small bento box?
Hopefully this is just teeempooorarrrry... Otherwise, all my bento gadgets will be collecting dust！
