Pancake Day

Pancake Day

The boys have been pestering me for several days now asking when it’s Pancake Day. Today, the pestering ended and they finally got their pancakes.

I used a simple Jamie Oliver recipe
1 large egg
1 cup of self raising flour
1 cup of semi skimmed milk

The boys whisked the mixture until bored then I finished it off!

1 large spoon of mixture into my lovely non-stick frying pan created these beauties.

I opted for lemon and sugar while the boys went for Nutella.

They tasted amazing and are not a bad attempt for somebody who burns everything in a frying pan! Thumbs up Mr Oliver!

Happy Half Birthday

Happy Half Birthday

Today the girls are 6 months old. How on earth did that happen so quickly? It only seems like yesterday that these 2 slimey and wrinkly babies were deposited on me and now they are twice the size and starting to get on the move.
These are definitely my last babies and I don’t want any more but, I still feel sad that I’ll never have those first magic cuddles and smell that newborn smell again. Let’s hope I get some nieces and nephews soon!!
So, to celebrate the girls half birthday, the boys have decided they want to do some baking. I have found a lovely 2 ingredient recipe for chocolate brownies that even the boys can’t mess up. I shall be back with the results later!
