18 Bento #255 - Olympic Breakfast (and Blog Hop!)

Friday, July 27, 2012


We are so excited for the London Summer Olympics 2012 opening ceremonies tonight!

So what do I have here?  The components are pancakes, a poached egg and maple syrup for dipping. I used a basic Bisquick pancake recipe, poured the batter into a squeeze bottle and drew (and drew, and drew) on a flat griddle.

I started to arrange it on my orange cutting board, but then got out my pizza stone because it's reminiscent of the track and field stadium.


Poached egg in a flower silicone cup.


The ubiquitous Olympic rings. I wasn't about to attempt the official London games logo.  I painted them with my all-natural food color powders.  I simply love them, they are so easy to use!  



We are so ready to watch the athletes do what they do best!  Our favourites to watch are gymnastics and swimming.

Now, hop on over and see what Corey at Family Fresh Meals did for her Olympic theme!


Make sure to push the button above, on every blog, to enjoy the hop till you get back from where you started. Have fun!!

Looks great! Mine would have been half smooshed, half-burnt, half-folded onto one another, and half-thrown-across-the-room-in-frustration. Pancakes hate me.
