… which is a good thing really, when you see plates like this:
I think it’s fair to say today’s adaptation of coconut flour pancakes (2tbsp flour, 1 flax egg, 2 beaten egg whites, mashed banana and 1tbsp milk) could be counted under the “epic failure” heading.
Weird-looking “batter”? Check.
Difficult to mix? Check.
Sticking to the pan and a nightmare to turn over? Check
But there was something to put on the plate and, covered with banana/almond butter mashup, well, if anything, it may even have looked worse:
But it tasted great! And if you could have the choice between food looking good and tasting good, I know which I’d choose 🙂
I saw this ABC questionnaire on Christin’s blog the other day and thought it was a great idea (I’m so nosy, I love things like that!) so I thought it was only fair for me to do my own…
A) Age: Somewhere between 21, and 81 🙂
B) Bed size: Single – I prefer it because, this is weird, I like having a single duvet or there’s just too much there… (And my bedroom’s too small for anything else!)
C) Chore you hate: Cleaning the plughole of the shower. Ewwwww
D) Dogs: My family’s border collies, Dylan and Dougal, live with my mum and dad. How could you resist these faces…
E) Essential start-your-day item: Breakfast (sounds stupidly obvious but I can’t go without. No way.)
F) Favourite colour: Errr……. blue?
G) Gold or silver: Silver
H) Height: 5’7″
I) Instruments you play: Guitar (a bit), piano (but not for ages)
J) Job title: Chief reporter (It’s very sad but I LOVE having the word “chief” in my job title! I think I’d even prefer that to “editor” 🙂 )
K) Kids: Love ’em – but couldn’t eat a whole one…
L) Live: Near Ashford in Kent
M) Mum’s name: Elizabeth
N) Nicknames: Jonesey (at work), Stinks (best friend; long-standing joke!) Phunt (as in Elly-phunt; stems from when I used to hang around with some hilarious boys…)
O) Overnight hospital stays: Yes, but as I was 0 hours old, I don’t remember too much of it… 🙂
P) Pet peeve: Where do I start?! People who drive in the middle/fast lane when there’s no one on their left, sub-editors at work changing copy for no reason other than they think their version is better – and then getting it WRONG! I could go on…
Q) Quote from a film: “Tonight is the night the world stood up and cried with one voice, we will not go quietly into the night, we will not vanish without a fight, we’re going to live on… ” etc, cue shouts of “yeah, Mr President!” Cheesy film-y greatness 🙂
R) Right or left-handed: Right
S) Siblings: Two sisters, one older, one younger, one brother
T) Time you wake up: 6am. Urrghh.
U) Underwear: Clean, thank you 🙂
V) Vegetable you dislike: Sprouts *shudder*
W) What makes you run late: Everything. There’s no hope.
X) X-Rays you’ve had: Chest, bone marrow, teeth
Y) Yummy food you make: Banana bread (and current favourite coconut rolls)
Z) Zoo, favourite animal: Tapirs. The staff at the one near me call the babies watermelons and they look EXACTLY like little black ones. I want a tapir!
Pick a letter and tell me your answer… 🙂
