We just went with the American pancakes for lunch....but used some cinnamon and caramel chips in them, which were nice. The little one loves them that way anyway, with lashings of maple syrup.

Anyone else find it a coincidence that on International Womens Day most women will be in the kitchen making pancakes?

And what do you have to do if she's not in the kitchen making pancakes?



Spoiler:
shorten her chain so she can't get out again....boom boom
Aaah...the old ones are the best. And theres always an exception to the rule....


Actually, as usual, I made the pancakes again this year. With a Chinese American wife its too too risky to leave it up to her.....they'll either come out with eggs and bacon, or else wrapped round a bit of frazzled duck with plum sauce....both of which are perfectly acceptable in the right place and time, but not today! And anyway, she's back in the UK (again) stocking up on Heinz puddings and ambrosia custard.....and from the look of the credit card bill, theres gonna be some excess baggage to pay for on the way home!

Hmm, we were short on ice cream, but squirty cream made an acceptable substitution.

Had some earlier with the kids, and the leftover batter was just sitting there, looking at me. So I've just finished it off. Feel sick now. Going to bed!

My husband is not a fan of English style pancakes (his loss) so I made a batch and ate them all myself. Heaven. With lemon juice and sugar of course.

Doesn't work like that though...I tend to "pay it forward".....you see the excuse for the extra pancakes last night was that I'd earned it by doing a long ride in the wind on Monday. Which may also be an excuse for a 9ers burger at lunchtime today....I can pay it a looooong way forward!!

Missed my burger today so my Monday ride owes me a curry tomorrow!

Got to get it while I can - the missus is back from the UK at the weekend and then it'll be rabbit food all round.....
