Whirlwind weekend

This Sunday we were in need of pancakes It was simply one of those weekends that roll on and you push a lot into and it goes without too much effort. The whole week we’d been in bed late, up early. So we decided Friday was an early night.

And it would have been if not for Return of the King being on TV until midnight. Though I have seen that movie at least a dozen times, both SO and I can’t turn it off. You go from great scene to great scene. So we slept in that Saturday. In the afternoon SO did bits and bobs around the house and the network. I went shopping at my favourite store that had a sale on.

The evening was spent socialising with some friends with two small children. It was obvious that we were the main attraction for them. We saw all their costumes; Spiderman (x2), bear, fairy, K3, crocodile, butterfly etc. you get the picture. But still it was fun and the company was good. But of course it was late before we got home and we slept in.

On Sunday we had planned on skietsing of course but by that stage energy levels needed to be raised. Pancake time therefore. With some minor adjustments to the recipe I was given by Emily;

  • 100g self raising flour
  • 1 egg (split)
  • 300ml proper churned buttermilk
  • 25g butter (melted)
  • 175g blueberries.

Mix together the self raising flour, buttermilk, melted butter and egg yolk. Beat the egg white stiff and spoon through the wet mixture. (I did not have time to raise the batter) and add half of the blueberries. A ladle (soup spoon) full in a very hot pan and change to lower heat. Wait until top is dryish and you see air bubbles appearing and staying. Then turn. et voila. Served it with maple syrup and powdered sugar and the remaining blueberries

We each had three pancakes this way. A great breakfast that kept us going for the day. Of course by the time we had finished our tour we were finally hungry – Pizza quickly solved that. Oh and Sunday we did go to sleep early, finally. Slept like roses.
