Slowly but surely, I'm starting to feel a little better (most surely down to some of you sending me such kind messages, honestly for someone like me who is sometimes a little sceptical about human nature, this blogland thing is throwing me right off track!!!). So I now feel like I can get midly excited about stuff that I got up to at the weekend that I was soooo looking forward to telling you about.
First of all, something to make you laugh. Pancake day anyone? Yep, Shrove Tuesday is next week. Well we didn't quite work that one out and thought that it was yesterday.... And me - being terribly organised and hating to be rushed off my feet - made the following suggestion: let's make some pancakes on Sunday night, that way, we can take our time and enjoy them. And if there's any leftover batter, we can have it on Tuesday, like everyone else. Only thing is, everyone else will be having their pancakes next week. We were a whole week early. But you know what, who says they should only be eaten once a year anyway?! I've got a special crêpe pan as well, so there! ;-)
And my question to you is this: do you roll yours up or fold it in four? I still can't make up my mind. But one thing I'm sure about is that the best crêpe filling in the world is the French way: Nutella all the way!! (yes yes I know, as you can tell from the photo above, I had mine with lemon and sugar because:
1/ I like it like that
2/ I'd never had it with lemon and sugar until about 5 years ago - the English always have to do things differently! and
3/ because the pounds are holding on and I need all the help I can get!! And that certainly does not involve eating a whole jar of Nutella with a spoon. Who said anything about eating it like a pig in one sitting I hear you ask? Well I'm French, Nutella runs in my veins and I can't stay away from the stuff if it's in the house. As simple as 2+2=4. Honest.) ;-)
