Pancakes, Yum!

Thanks for all your support for my FIDO nomination!

Mmm, pancakes - delicious!

So last night mum made pancakes as it was Shrove Tuesday. Traditionally, it was the day when Christians used up all the store-cupboard food before the abstinence of Lent began. So that means pancakes. How can flour, milk & egg taste so scrummy?

Mum mixed up the ingredients & heated up the pan. When the oil was hot she poured in some of the batter and swirled it around the pan. When it bubbled she flipped it over. I was really hoping it was going to flip right out of the pan & into my mouth, but alas, it landed in the pan the other way up, boo.

Mum said her & dad were having the traditional sugar & lemon juice with their pancakes, but that sounded rather boring to me, so I requested banana & cream cheese with mine, much more tasty I think you'll agree. Mum chopped it up into gulp-sized pieces, and mixed it up with the philly cheese & banana chunks.

I hoovered it up in an instant. Mum says she doesn't think I even tasted it, but she is soooooo wrong, it was fantastic!

I'm sure there was some more batter left in the jug somewhere up there.

Please mum, can I have some more?

Yay, pancakes! My mommy makes special chocolate chip pancakes for my human sisters, but she says I can't have any cuz of the chocolate. Not fair! Oh, and btw, a pug can do A LOT of scratching. Sometimes I go on and on (mom timed me at almost 10 minutes one day) like I'm trying to dig to China!

Marvin The Dog said...

wow! Those pancakes looked amazing Oscar!

I usually get the first one, the unsucessful one Jeannie always messes up!

Your Mum is very clever - Jeannie finds getting the correct thickness of the batter quite hard! Silly girl! I don't mind though, if I get the thick first pancake!

love and drooooooling licks Marv xxxx
