I sent my mum a picture from my phone yesterday.
I knew she’d like it as much as I did, even though my phone couldn’t capture how lovely the thick frost looked on the yellow petals:
Unfortunately, owing to my phone’s predictive text, the email with it said “I’m sending you a picture of a frosty croat”.
Nothing wrong with chilly Slavs, of course, but I think it might have surprised her a bit 🙂
But moving on from Croats, crocuses and the like, today was of course Pancake Day.
I wasn’t as committed to the cause as I was last year, having considered making some for breakfast last night and deciding I couldn’t be bothered. Such lack of dedication.
I did make some for dinner though:
That ugly-looking pile may not be instantly, or even at all, recognisable as pancakes but take my word for it. Buckwheat mix, chopped wilted spinach and garlic powder, pancaked and topped with sauted mushroom and leek and a dollop of vegan cheezy sauce.
Given that I love pancakes, spinach and said sauce, it was a fair bet that these would go down well 🙂
They were great and I’ve now got loads of ideas for other savoury pancakes. Did you have pancakes today? And are you giving anything up for Lent?
