My social media feeds have been full of images of the perfect pancake day posts today.
For me it’s just another day when Mamas have to pull a rabbit out of the hat to be #makingmemories whilst simultaneously providing their Smalls with the healthiest way of enjoying the favourite tea-time of the year!
So while you think Pancake day looks like this…
It actually looks more like this…
1 – Not enough/not the right pans to make pancakes in
2 – A slightly dubious batter recipe used that also doubles for Yorkshire Puddings
3 – A kitchen/clothes/hair filled with smoke from burned butter
4 – No one eating together at the table as only one pancake is made at a time
5 – A lot of golden syrup/nutella consumed/spilled on the table/floor/worktop
6 – Sticky sugar everywhere
7 – Token fresh fruit cast aside
8 – General whingeing from Smalls about who has eaten the most/turn it is next/why their pancake is smaller than their sibling’s
9 – Everyone thinking they can flip a pancake like Gordon Ramsey
10 – Decimated pancake all over the hob/floor/worktop
11 – Never enough mixture left
12 – Not getting to eat any pancakes yourself
13 – Papa’s walking in asking what’s for tea amidst carnage
14 – Shed loads of washing up/clearing up/mopping of sticky floor
15 – Vows to buy expensive shop bought ones next year to gently warm in the oven and serve in civilised manner at dinner table with organic yogurt, blueberries and a sprinkle of chia seeds
16 – Wine
How’s it been round yours? Mine has been fairly standard, as above!
