It’s been far too long since I’ve made pancakes. Far too long. Last Sunday it was time to fix this.
Ben and I went for a morning jog, fuelled by feelings of…I don’t quite know how to describe them…lets just say nervous energy. I’m slowly getting my fitness back after frequently being unwell the past few months. Last year I was really only working in Private Practice, and now I’m working all over the place, including in Hospitals. As a result I’ve been getting sick quite a bit and my fitness has suffered, oh has it suffered. But it’s coming back to me…ever so slowly. I kind of wish it would hurry up a little though, geeze.
On the way home from our jog we picked up the papers. Sunday morning = the papers to me. And then the pancake making began…
Originally I had planned to make my Banana Choc Chip Buttermilk Pancakes but, call me crazy, I wasn’t in the mood for chocolate chips. So instead I used the same recipe but subbed the choc chips for blueberries, and added an extra 1/2 tablespoon of sugar and 2/3 teaspoon of cinnamon to the mix. They were a little gooey inside, possibly just needing a longer time in the pan, so I’ll try again before posting a true recipe. I served them with lemon wedges (for me) and ice-cream (for Ben). And maple syrup. Always maple syrup.
Pancakes were had. Banana Blueberry Buttermilk Pancakes. Along with the papers, Gourmet Traveller and Tea. Always Tea.
A short while after breakfast, Ben and I headed down to Red Hill to be with family. The pizza oven was roaring.
It was a nice Sunday, despite it being difficult. I hope you had a lovely day, where ever you were and whatever you were doing. Thanks for all your incredibly lovely comments on my previous post, it is so touching. If I’ve learnt anything from losing my brother it is that life is so short. Live it wholly and be happy. Pancakes, Pizza and Family are a great place to start…
