I don´t really know why I´m so happy today, but it feels good to have a weekend coming up. I might have a glass of wine tonight. Mabey we will cook up something good and have a fun Friday night.
Today I had a really yummy but healthy (ish) breakfast, we had some bananas that needed to be used so I thought I might as well just make some banana pancakes. I used this recipe from food blogger Ida Gran Jansen, or I was inspired by it! However, I did skip the cottage cheese and milk. I didn’t have cottage cheese and to be honest, I don’t really like using to much milk when baking. I think it tastes better with water (I know I´m weird)!
Just to be clear, I will never be one of those fancy food bloggers who share their own recipes and that’s because I don´t follow any. I´m actually terrible at following recipes. Usually, I just glans quickly at something that I want to make and I just wing it. I love to just use my own intuition and hope for the best. I do fail a lot, especially when it comes to baking, but I do learn a lot too. I will try to give a rough description of what I do (when posting food posts), but I will probably link you all a proper recipe. Just to be on the safe side. I don’t want to cause anyone any disasters. Haha!
So, this is what I did:
3 x bananas (overdue) – crush
2 x eggs – mix with the bananas
a pinch of salt
a pinch of cardamom
a pinch of baking powder
1-2 cups of oatmeal (you don´t want it too thick)
water if needed
I had some clementines that were overdue, I sliced them and had them with the pancakes. I also had walnutes, a little bit honey and a cinneamon and brown sugar crumble.
I hope you all have a good weekend. Tomorrow, Gillian and I will do a cozy trip to La Châtre. We are of course checking out the charity shops and going for a typical French coffee (the tiny small espresso with cold milk).
