Disney Junior celebrates Mother’s Day with special shows

Disney Junior celebrates May with new episodes of Sofia the First and the premiere of Tangled. 
We are excitedly looking forward to watch Sofia the First new episodes on Sunday May 5 and 19 at 11:30am ET.

- Sofia the First “The Princess Test” premiere on May 5th will be about Sofia finding out what being a true princess is all about when she is sidetracked on her way to an important Princess Test at her school. 

- On May 19 Sofia the First episode “Baileywick’s Day Off” is about Baileywick’s day-off being frustrated by demands from Sofia, Amber and James until the royal siblings learn about gratitude. 
Learning about gratitude is an important life skill that starts from a young age. As a parent, I think it is important for us to be role models and practice this, so it is easy to teach our children i.e to say Thank you, Please! and to appreciate one another. Gratitude should be a part of our lives and be second nature to us, so we can appreciate life and everything around us.
In order to celebrate Mother’s Day on Sunday May 12, Disney Junior Channel will be having special programmes, here is the detailed schedule and a small clip from Disney Junior.

9am: Special Agent Oso - Eun-Kyung wants to make a handprint as a Mother's Day gift for her Mom, but she doesn't know how.

10:00am: Jake and the Never Land Pirates - When Captain Hook’s mother comes to visit, Captain Hook takes her on a treasure hunt. However, Mama Hook isn’t proud of her son when she finds out that Hook didn’t find the treasure on his own.

Tangled: Movie Premiere on Saturday, May 18 at 6pm ET
Everyone in our home has a special connection with Rapunzel because
- It was the first movie my son watched in the theatre
- Rapunzel is my daughter's favourite Disney Princess
- We all enjoyed watching two Disney on Ice shows that featured Rapunzel
- Like Rapunzel I have been waiting to use my skillet pan... but not to hit a stranger :) rather to make this delicious skillet cake that would be a perfect snack to serve your family while watching the movie. 
These griddle cakes are tasty, healthy and filling. This recipe is adapted from Baking Step-by-Step DK book.
1 1/3 cups whole wheat or all-purpose flour
1 1/2 tsp baking soda
1 1/2 tsp salt (reduce a little about 1/4 tsp)
1 cup rolled oats
3 tbsp brown sugar
2 cups buttermilk
unsalted butter melted for greasing

Mix all the ingredients except the butter and make a smooth batter. Heat the griddle or cast-iron frying pan to medium-low and brush the heated griddle with the melted butter. Using a ladle drop about 2 tbsp batter onto the hot griddle and cook for 5 minutes, when the bottom is golden and crisp turn and cook the other side for about 5 minutes longer. Serve the cakes warm with jam.
