56 days to go: PancakeTuesday

The children are off school so it's pancakes for breakfast.
I have got this down to a fine art - thanks to Jamie Oliver.
I egg, 1 cup of self-raising flour, 1 cup of milk.
Whisk and fry in butter.
If only the washing up was as easy.
My children eat them with whatever is around.
Today the boys ate them with sugar and lemon except for one intrepid son who foraged in the freezer and found a Crunchie ice cream.

I wore..
Shoes - Clarks
Skirt - Gap
Top - Matalan
Belt - Asos

Penny said...

I love this outfit...it's so sweet.

see you there! said...

Looks like you are pretty good at flippin' pancakes.

The belt gives this outfit just a bit of polish I think. Nice!


Struggler said...

Congratulations on looking so well put together even before breakfast!
If I might offer a candy-bar translation for those across the pond, a Crunchie is a Cadbury's specialty with a kind of honeycomb brittle center. See one here!

Jennie said...
