Yesterday was pancake day (or Shrove Tuesday) here in the UK, a fact which we took full advantage of! I love pancakes of all styles scotch/american/crepes/etc… and yesterday all of our meals involved pancakes of some style in some way. I really don’t know why we don’t eat them more often they are so quick and easy to make, not to mention versatile.
We had the scotch/american style for breakfast. I kept it nice and simple with just butter and golden syrup, sadly not maple syrup as I’ve run out!
After breakfast we all nipped out to the supermarket for our weekly grocery shop, and to get more milk for more pancakes! This meant that at lunch time we had a more traditional pancake day offering of crepes with sugar and lemon… or for my husband and little E a whole range of toppings including, but not limited to, Nutella and peanut butter. Personally I don’t think it gets better than lemon and sugar.
As the weather was miserable and Vince was home, we spent the rest of our day having a family movie marathon, playing with toys (Emma), reading comics (dear hubby), and doing some crochet. It was a blissfully relaxed and easy day.
We also had crepes with a savoury filling consisting of cheese, baby spinach and mushrooms for dinner but I neglected to take any photos. Oops.
Needless to say Emma thoroughly enjoyed her first pancake day, particularly the ones involving nutella. More strangely her love of lemon has grown to the extent that she will take a quarter from my plate and start eating it like an apple… Rind, pith, everything… I’m not sure what to think about that!
Well I’m off to drink my cup of tea that Vince has just made me and then on to start a little roast dinner 🙂 I love our midweek weekends! I hope your week is going well so far!
