When in Rome, sorry Scotland.

Afternoon and how are you today?

I had another brisk, chilly walk along the beach this morning, the air was very crisp but it was dry and clear, a bonus.
This morning I have been naughty and finished the crochet head for my current project.  I don't know about you but once I get the bit in my teeth I like to keep going regardless of what is going on around me.
I did however take a break in proceedings to do a little washing and as it is Pancake Tuesday I also thought whilst in Scotland it would be rude not to have a go at these.

Mmmm Scotch pancakes, with maple syrup and bacon.  Yum.
As you can see I have a crepe maker, my Mum bought it for me years ago when I first had the boys.
I do miss making pancakes the traditional way but my boys love the huge ones this makes.
Every year without fail it gets a dusting down and goes into full production.
I've already had strict instructions that we are having crepes for tea tonight but as a Scotch pancake recipe was doing the rounds on Facebook I thought the boys would like a snack whilst waiting for bigger ones.
Who knew that they were so simple; 4 oz Self raising flour, a pinch of salt, 2 oz sugar, 1 egg and 4 tablespoons of milk, mix and then cook on the hob.  When bubbles appear turn with a spatula and brown the other side.

My youngest certainly enjoyed his at lunch time.  He even said they're better than the schools but shhh don't tell anyone.  ;)

That's all from me today I really should get a couple of Valentine's cards made, I know most of you have been making them for weeks and putting me to shame.  I just can't get in the groove.
To be honest I'd much rather be making arms and legs!  (Crocheting)
Enough from me now as I am starting to waffle and today is for pancakes not waffle!
Enjoy the rest of your day and more from me tomorrow.

These look delicious. Mine aren't fond of pancakes so I don't usually bother to make them but these have whetted my appetite - they can get their own tea while I have these, lol.
