life made easier...

for breakfast, i would say 5 out of 7 days of the week my boys want pancakes.

frozen, blueberry, homemade... doesn't matter to them.

not hard... i can handle that.

well, yesterday while folding clothes i watched jon & kate plus eight.
(could you even imagine that many kids?!?!?)

they made my mornings easier... all because of this...

cut the pancakes with a pizza cutter!

i tried it this morning & it saved seconds!!! alot easier.

now i just need to find a travel pizza cutter to fit into my purse for when we eat out... anybody seen one?!?! ha ha

That IS a good idea! We actually had breakfast for dinner last night, and we ate up the rest of our frozen waffles. That idea would've come in handy!!

Thanks for sharing!

I have to admit that I use my pizza cutter for a lot of things...I love it. I haven't seen a small one though:-)

wish i had read this early this morning - i hate cutting their pancakes/waffles with a fork. (i've ripped them into peices with my hands before b/c i hate using the fork so much...)
UCO gave away pizza cutters to the new students a couple years ago. somehow we ended up with a box full of them at the church - they were small - like 2 half frisbees stuck together with a hard plastic cutting wheel between them. Sounds like I should have gotten you one - i will look around and see if ther are any left. Maybe all your friends will want to buy them from us - ha ha!
