This is a hencake.
I make at least one hencake every time I fix pancakes for the family.
This is not necessarily a breakfast picture. It could be dinner. I do that sometimes. Breakfast for dinner.
Hencakes are made from a ladle... the batter is poured out, slowly... first the body, and then the tail and head. Sometimes I add either feet, or a nest for her to settle into.
Hencakes make me happy. When I am amused, I am happy.
Maria used to call a chicken's beak a "toot." I remember exactly the time when she drew a beak, and called it a toot.
The toot is the hardest part to add to a hencake. They usually come out a bit big. This one could be a hummingbird's toot.
And now, I am going to clean our kitchen, fold some laundry, and be uncharacteristically productive in areas domestic.
What are you doing?
Have you figured out Maria's Secret Share? It is kind of a vegetable but it didn't grow in the garden!
