You know, I never really understood the whole peanut butter and jelly thing. It just didn’t really seem like two things that would go together. Maybe it had something to do with the fact that being allergic to nuts meant that I had no idea what peanut butter was like. Or because being in England, I had a completely different idea about what jelly was. It took me a while to realise the whole thing was actually about jam! But since making my own free from butter, I’m obsessed with this strange combo!
Who doesn’t love pancake day? An excuse to indulge in stacks of freshly cooked pancakes, piled up high and slathered in toppings. I don’t need a reason to enjoy pancakes for dinner, but having a whole day dedicated to it is enough to convince me!
Growing up we didn’t really eat pancakes, so when we did it was definitely a treat. There were always so many toppings to choose from, from berries, banana and honey. But for me, it was all about the lemon and sugar. There was nothing better than a freshly cooked pancake, still warm and covered in sugar and lemon. Rolled up and munched on, I could seriously eat about 5 in one sitting. And I’ll admit, more than a few times, I did just that! But for some reason, I’ve missed the last few pancake days, and honestly, I haven’t treated myself to pancakes for a while. But when I do, I go all out!
