The kids woke up feeling morose now that the holidays are over. (Don, on the other hand, seems surprisingly chipper about it.) To perk up their spirits, I made Mickey Mouse pancakes and served them on TV trays while they watched Davey and Goliath.
Betty Draper's Mickey Mouse Pancakes
2 C Bisquik
1 C milk
2 T sugar
2 tsp baking power
1 tsp vanilla
Whisk ingredients together in a pyrex bowl. (Except chips and marshmallows.) Pour 1/3 cup batter onto a greased griddle for Mickey's face, then 1/8 cup for each of Mickey's ears. When Mickey's face starts to bubble, use a long spatula under his head and as much of the right ear as possible. Flip. Once pancake is flipped, press 2 chocolate chips to make eyes, 5 chips for his smile and a marshmallow for his nose. When lightly browned, remove from skillet and repeat. I serve with Parkay and Mrs. Butterworth's.
