American Pancakes In Cornwall


Not a great picture, but these pancakes are delicious & so easy to make...
They also got the thumbs up from our American friends!

Vegan Pancake Recipe
1 cup (250g) self-raising whole wheat flour
1 cup porridge oats
1 heaped teaspoon ground linseeds or egg replacement powder
1 heaped teaspoon baking powder
1 teaspoon cinnamon
pinch sea salt
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
2 tablespoons maple syrup
1/2 cup water
1 cup plant milk

Method
Chuck all the dry ingredients into a bowl or large measuring jug.
Gradually add the wet ingredients & mix well.
Finish by whizzing with a hand blender...

We made them for breakfast at the weekend.
(Little D wasn't keen on Sime's porridge)

We get the hob ring hot & use a non-stick pan, so no need for oil, etc.
Pour enough mixture in the pan & cook until it starts bubbling fiercely.
The pancake should just flip over easily.

We burnt this one, so D (isn't she a cutie?) gave it to her Daddy...
We like fresh lemon or lime juice on ours with either some home made cinnamon sugar or a drizzle of maple syrup... Enjoy!

D's parents were in Cornwall to do a couple of shows & she likes joining in too...

We'll do another post about them & how we met...

Have a super duper weekend!

Invisible Man

I love the summer. It's my favourite time of year. This year has been particularly bountiful with regards to long periods of uninterrupted sunshine and I have needed no encouragement whatsoever to step outside and sensibly and gradually expose my body to the rays. Over a period of many weeks I have gradually bronzed in a way that has been beyond my grasp for many years due to the whims and vagaries of the British summer. Finally, after careful immersion I have achieved a level of poise and confidence not unlike say mild smugness. Now don't get me wrong, it is by no means a deep tan, a swarthy layer of earthen masculinity but it is most definitely noticeable to those who may have whispered the words "pasty" or "wan git", It has been not just a surprise but a crushing blow then to discover that my new found glow has not only been completely ignored, but my lovely wife (who too possesses a not unenviable tan herself has been the centre of attention because of …

Settling In

We are loving our new little place and are feeling very much at home...
We gave away our juicer to a lovely friend, as our new kitchen is quite small. We do have a Nutribullet too, which is easier to clean and we start each day with a smoothie. These are pineapple, banana, kale, goji berry, pumpkin seeds, turmeric and spirulina.
We add a mix of water and home made milk to the ingredients. Delicious!

We have been reunited with our milk maker (which was buried in the jam room at Meadowcroft).  It's great making all sorts of milks again...  And the pulp goes into our porridge!
This one is brown rice and almond.

Year Of Adventure

A bit late, but Happy New Year! :-)
We had a lovely time with all our kidlets over Christmas, which has made quite a change - the first time in years that we have all managed to be under one roof during the holiday period! 
We are so pleased that we could do this, as this was to be our last one at Meadowcroft...  Yes, not only are we buying our little French house (which will need lots of TLC before we move in), but we have decided to downsize to a small house overlooking the sea while we visit France and just enjoy ourselves!

We only made the decision at the beginning of December, which meant we needed to get busy decluttering...
Taking the opportunity to move from our big place in Boswinger to a small, very lovely, fully furnished one bedroom converted garage near to Mevagissey...

This was the view from our bedroom early this morning.

We were supposed to be managing the property as a holiday let for our friends, but after having a few days break here - we fell in love with it!!!
So…
