Today was the last day of a very long, busy week. School is back in full force, with lunches having to be done everyday, preschool for Jared two days this week, a 5th birthday... I feel like Ive starting running on Monday and have only just stopped now.
This morning, I had absolutely nothing for breakfast, Im talking no bread, no cereal, and limited milk. At 7.30am, the last thing I felt like doing was traipsing off to the shop to find breakfast.....
But, with three hungry mouths to feed I didnt have a lot of choice. Until a brilliant 7 yr old came up with the idea of making our own pancakes.
Now, I have to admit, I dont realy make much from scratch. I love my packet mixes, premade sauces, anything that makes my life that little bit easier :) This stretches to even the shaka maker pancake mix.
But she was pretty determined we could work it out so we googled a recipe and searched for the ingredients. All that was needed was sugar, milk, self raising flour and and egg, all surprisingly, in my cupboards and fridge!
So with a recipe in hand, we began to make our first homemade-from-scratch pancakes.
Dont you love pancake bokeh?? ;)
When they were cooked, we also found a punnet of fresh blueberries to go with them.
I felt vey mother nature-ish as my little hungry hoard happily ate them all.
Its funny how the simple things can bring such easy pleasure :)
Happy weekend :)
