~Yes, We Have No Bananas~

When Ella and Jackson stay at Grandma's, we make pancakes every morning. From scratch. They're Ella's favorite breakfast, and they're quickly becoming Jackson's favorite as well.

As I was assembling the ingredients, Jack Johnson's "Banana Pancakes" was playing in the background. Ella came running into the kitchen and said, "Grandma! Can we make banana pancakes today?" Mmmm. That sounded like a delicious idea. I readily agreed, and got out the bananas. I sliced them into a bowl, and told Ella it was time for her to add them to the batter.

With the biggest grin, she said, "Grandma....let's make Banana Pancakes without the bananas!" So we did.

They were the truly the best Banana Pancakes I've ever tasted. Ella agreed.

Hello!
I saw your link from JaneGraftonDesigns. I have a little sister, so I have seen the muppet's "Yes, we have no bananas" many times this year. Your granddaughter is very cute!

Looks like even though you're crazy busy, you've got your priorities in order! What a cute story about the 'no bananas' in the banana pancakes. Kids always crack the best jokes!
