Today was one of my favourite days of the year. What a fantastic idea to allocate an entire day for eating pancakes! I’ve always loved them and so it was only natural to go to my friends’ place and spend two and a half hours making, assembling and eating pancakes.
As you can see, I was obviously too excited for the pancake cooking to begin to actually brush my hair this morning – you can understand that right?
My friend is obviously as weird as my mum, because he too decided to have banana on his pancake (albeit with squirty cream and chocolate spread). They need to learn – pancakes should never be associated with anything remotely healthy, unless it’s sour and comes from a lemon. Pancakes are basically just something to use for eating chocolate spread/sugar/golden syrup without getting your hands all sticky. I’m sure that’s why they were invented! And what’s more, on pancake day you don’t get judged for eating your weight in scrummy, unhealthy fried things smothered in chocolate. It’s BRILLIANT!!
So now I sit here licking the last of the syrup off my fingers counting down the days until another of my favourite times of year – the day where you get lynched if you DON’T eat chocolate – Easter! Maybe that’s why lent is needed, in an attempt to lose some of the calories from all the pancakes you’ve eaten before you put them all back on again in chocolate.
I think I’ll go and make something really healthy for tea tonight. After all the cakes/cookies/brownies/pancakes I’ve eaten over the last few days I think I need to have a break from unhealthy food.
But, oh, I’ve still got some cake from home that I bought back to uni with me. That’s much more tasty than vegetables. And easier too.
Cake for tea isn’t so bad.
What’s your favourite pancake topping? Mine’s definitely close between chocolate spread and golden syrup with lemon juice.
