Hasn’t it been a perfect May Day bank holiday weekend?
Warm sun, the hint of a breeze – flowers and, I don’t know, cute baby rabbits?
It may not have rained, much, but it’s been grey, cold, windy and horrible all weekend. I keep thinking it’s May, I’ll be much too hot in my winter jacket – and then freezing in my thin one, even with two fleeces underneath 😦
Having written that bit this morning though, we did have a couple of hours’ sun this afternoon and it was suddenly obvious just how green it is everywhere, with the cow parsley just starting to come out along all the verges; you’ve got to love English countryside at this time of year.
And three days off is three days off, whatever the weather’s like.
I’m still loving pancakes for breakfast when I’m not at work, specifically these ones. I went to make some the other day, only to find I’d just about run out of the Orgran buckwheat pancake mix. so instead of doing the sensible thing and using buckwheat flour (the mix is only flours with a bit of raising agent added) I tried some other ideas, without much success.
First up, a flourless version:
Not what I’d had in mind at all, but at least it was edible, which is more than can be said for these:
Look all right don’t they? Don’t be fooled. I had the bright idea of making up the tiny bit of pancake mix I had left up to 50g with some mesquite flour I’ve had for ages. It was an eye-opener, I’ll give it that. I hate wasting food and there’s not much I won’t eat but they were revolting. I ate the blueberries and a gingerbread Nakd bar and called it a day 🙂
So this morning, I did what I should have done in the first place and used flour:
Doves Farm brown blend, all good. That’ll teach me for trying to be a pancake maverick 🙂
I might have to have the same on Wednesday when I’m off because… it’s my birthday! Maybe that even calls for some sort of chocolate to be involved too…. 🙂
Did you get some sun today? What’s your favourite lazy-morning breakfast?
