Day 32 | Lulu? C'est Moi!
We've been pottering around our neighbourhood all day. Spent a lovely half hour in the Amnesty Book Shop and had Rooibosch and an Americano at the Boston Tea Party - a locao Bristolian cafe chain - well worth checking out if you're in the SW. We did Sudoku, read a Beidecker on Rome, and pondered the big question about who will replace Brucey on Strictly Come Prancing.
We're settled on Julian Clary - who isn't in the running, but should be.
The Dress: Worn inside out - I feel less dumpy in it this way.
The Rest: Lovely little Benetton jumper with 3/4 sleeves and a V. Gap Cardy - best charity shop purchase ever - cost me a quid in the 'sale' had it 7 years - and it doesn't owe me a penny! Grey marl tights, green plastic ring. Betty's ring and a little grey beret...
The Shoes: Glorious faux snakeskin clompers - a sort of dull green. Ted Baker. Also bought in a Sale - years ago and dragged out every Spring. Might be my fave platforms. (My treasured De Havilland's had to be discarded after a freak accident involving my crystal ball - I am NOT lying!).
The Doo: Woefully undone and messy - you couldn't drag a comb through this haystack!
The Pancakes: 100g organic oats, 200g ricotta/cottage cheese (I use a combination), 4 eggs. That's it! Beat them all together (I grind the oats a bit if they're big). Add a little soy milk to loosen the batter.
Use a really good pancake pan - and you don't need to butter it.
Pop a ladle of mix onto pan and jiggle it to level it. (These make thick pancakes not crepes).
When you see little bubbles popping over the whole surface - flip for a few more seconds.
Pile up, interleave with grease-proof paper if you can be faddled.
Yahoo! So good for you it's perfect!
