I'm here because it's a place where I want to be.

What do I do with my life - still pondering that, keep exploring the possibilities I suppose...

I do have another more personal moblog Vivupclose

Take a look at my daughter Beth's website...

food for thought...

Everyone, in some small sacred sanctuary of the self, is nuts. -Leo Rosten, author (1908-1997)

We think caged birds sing, when indeed they cry. -John Webster, playwright (c. 1580-1634)

There are two kinds of light -- the glow that illuminates, and the glare that obscures. -James Thurber, writer and cartoonist (1894-1961)

The artist brings something into the world that didn't exist before, and he does it without destroying something else. -John Updike, writer (1932-2009)

Some people become so expert at reading between the lines they don't read the lines. -Margaret Millar, novelist (1915-1994)

There may be times when we are powerless to prevent injustice, but there must never be a time when we fail to protest. -Elie Wiesel, writer, Nobel laureate (b. 1928)

Mog was a bit cross that I was taking her picture rather than letting her in.

it was a pancake party...

(viewed 1033 times)
Research on pancakes taught me several things, but I stuck to the english traditional recipe of 2 eggs to a pint of milk and 8oz plain flour + salt. I used large free range eggs and organic whole milk. I also added 2oz of melted butter. Only one chef said use a blender, but I thought why not and was pleased I did - so much easier.

Lots of toppings
hot black forest
hot apple pear and cinnamon
melted choc
dried cranberries
edit - missed out chopped walnut
and of course lemon
assorted sugars
golden syrup

plus cream, greek yogurt and ice creams

don't know about stuffed pancakes but there were a few well stuffed people!


NEITHER - had 2 frying pans on my cooker and was making my first pancake in the smaller one, but it has straight sides so wasn't easy to turn so I flipped it into the bigger pan - a perfect solution!
