Today's the day that all mums get to kick back a little and enjoy someone else cooking the Sunday breakfast. In our house it is more like brunch but if someone else is cooking I can wait. As I type twiddling my new earrings that are shaped like angel wings, one of my many beautiful gifts, I am happily basking in the glow of my beautiful children who are now young adults. I can hear my dad saying to me "Ya did good kid, they turned out OK."
My youngest has decided that she would cook me pancakes, Banana & Blueberry pancakes from one of my recipes; and although she has eaten these many times before she was surprised by how easy they were to make. She was further excited that these pancakes were actually really tasty; in our house it's cook's privilege to eat the first pancake out of the pan or the tester pancake. What I am most proud of is that she is starting to change the way she thinks about food and understand that there are some very good alternatives to a lot of basic ingredients. Most excitingly she had made the decision to put 'ice cream' on top. But allergy free 'ice cream'. She got the Yonanas machine out and put a couple of frozen bananas through it and Voila! Banana ice cream. She topped it off with a sprinkle of cinnamon and desiccated coconut. I know this cook was very impressed; her kitchen definitely rules.
It really is nice to know that the youth of today are starting to realise that they have a choice where food is concerned and contrary to popular belief this 'alternative' food is not just 'awesome' but quick and easy to make.
So even if you have to do the cooking yourself have crack at these Banana and Blueberry pancakes it's a great way to reward yourself for another years hard work and even if your not a mum you can still enjoy these delicious pancakes whatever the celebration.
Enjoy your day.
