To think of a food that starts with the letter X is nearly impossible! So, we decided to make some banana pancakes instead. My friend mentioned to me that she adds banana to her pancakes for her kids, any time she makes pancakes. So, that is exactly what we did for these.
I used a store bought pancake mix, followed the directions, and added exactly one mashed banana for 1 cup of pancake mix. Then, to make fun pancake shapes, we use a squeeze bottle.
When adding anything chunky to pancake mix, it is necessary to cut the top of your squeeze bottle WAY down to the bottom, to make it as wide as possible. Otherwise, your batter will get clogged too easily and it can be very frustrating.
Then, for a little Letter X fun, you can make your own tic-tac-toe board! I took a few pictures before Erica was really bothered that I was photographing a losing board. So, she re-arranged the board so X could win.
