The one that flipped

06 Feb

bacon and apple pancake

Despite being un-Roman-Catholic, Pancake Day has some appealing characteristics.

Besides the pancake-ness, there was also: bacon, apple and canadian maple syrup. (Beat that, little bro πŸ˜‰ ) Oh, and a tin of some strange Citrus tango I got from my Somerfield that’s closing down at the end of the week.

I was totally chuffed at the prospect of using my new measuring spoons only to find, on checking my pancake recipe, that it used grams after all. Ah well, conversion-website to the rescue again!

    I can beat that, I had some a few weeks ago, and got the consistency and quantity of butter perfect, so they all flipped perfectly every time, and perfectly round πŸ˜›

    Lyles Golden Syrup ftw πŸ˜›

    What, u measure stuff? U’ll never be a top chef. Ya gotta go by gut instinct.

    Need a camera so I can take snapshots of all ma wonderful creations.

    I admit that Canadian maple syrup is the best πŸ™‚ not biased in the least!

    btw, i’ve never heard of a “pancake day”…is it a British thing?

    J: After living with you for nearly two decades, common sense tells me to at least think twice before trusting your gut instinct on anything πŸ˜›

    On a more down-to-earth note – everyone needs to start somewhere, and the way your gut becomes informed is to be taught correctly and accurately in the first place. (Maybe not the only way to learn, but certainly not to be sniffed at in some mindless manner πŸ˜‰ ) Of course, this method is highly recommendable.

    Ev: I sooo want to say a real “Congratulations” – but that should come in the form of a hug and smile rather than binary+electricity. How’s the wee chap doing? And just as importantly, yourself? I heard you had your cousin-in-law helping you for all of a precious week… but I’m hoping it won’t be too tiring for you now!
