It can’t just be me who loves listening to Jack Johnson. The relaxed summer vibes are flowing from spotify right now as I’m sunbathing in the garden and chaos of the past few days! What chaos? You might be asking and that’s a very good question. The parents have gone to my older brother’s graduation so Wednesday and Thursday, I was in charge of my 8 year old Brother (James) and Ralph and Alvin. Chaos might be a bit of an exaggeration. I got in a bit of a frenzy trying to control Ralph on our dog walk after taking James to school. He wouldn’t listen to me! I know he is only a puppy but I’m pretty sure I could have left him with anyone else with a dog and he’d never come back. James also doesn’t like seeing me as an authority figure. He made up late for school by taking 10 minutes to clean his teeth (most of them were spent not brushing his teeth)… SO FRUSTRATING. Other than that, things ran quite smoothly.
So, Where do the pancakes come into this? Being the Domestic Goddess/ best Sister in the world, I made James and I pancakes for breakfast yesterday. I got up super early and made the best breakfast ever (according to James). In our recently done kitchen we only have one massive frying pan and as I didn’t fancy massive pancakes, the medium sized ones I made were very weirdly shaped. Anyway, James was impressed and ate 4 of them with sugar and lemon. I, on the other hand, fancied some fruit so go on mine.
With summer being my inspiration, I cut up a banana and a few strawberries and drizzled Golden Syrup over them. It might not have been as healthy as it could have been but they were so delicious! Sadly this won’t be a regular occurrence but we will probably enjoy it more as a one off treat. What’s your ‘best ever’ breakfast?
