Lion Pancake Inspired by Family Fun Facebook Post

We saw the cute lion pancake in a post on Facebook by Family Fun magazine.  Seemed like a good Saturday or Sunday morning project.  Too cute!  Find the original picture here:

Family Fun "March Comes in Like a Lion Pancake" on Facebook

 Here's how ours turned out:

Ours is a little different because Future Fashionista didn't like the pancakes I made this morning.  Luckily we had these little flat sandwich rounds.
We also didn't have a strawberry for the nose and didn't want to use chocolate for the mouth and whiskers, so we used cheese for the nose and melted peanut butter chips for the mouth and whiskers.  Future Fashionista wanted to do put it together by herself.
My little food artist!  Thanks to Family Fun Magazine's Facebook page for the idea.

I believe March is indeed going to come in like a lion here as there is a Winter Advisory in effect that could produce around 4 - 6 inches of snow.  Not like we're going anywhere anyway.
The Builder (my son) has a nasty stomach virus.  Apparently there's a stomach virus going around that can cause you to vomit for up to a week.  Fun!

Is March going to come in like a lion where you are?

Egg Baked in Avocado! Definitely Worth a Try!!


I saw this in the print edition of February's Redbook Magazine.

All I can say is

Oh my!  Yummo!!!

I can't find a link to it online.  There are plenty of recipes online for the same kind of thing though.
Here are some if you'd like to take a look:

I cooked mine a little longer than the Redbook directions called for.
I ended up leaving mine in the oven for about 24 minutes.  When I looked after 15 minutes, my whites were still clear.  I'm not usually a "runny" egg kind of girl, but I think I could get used to it.

I didn't make my hole for the egg big enough, so the egg whites ran out over the side.  
I sprinkled mine with garlic powder, black pepper and crushed red pepper flakes and then baked at 375 for 24 minutes.  I can't believe that I've never done this before.

It. Was. Awesome!
