Since we had a rainy spring day and could not celebrate spring in the sunshine, we decided to bake pancakes!
CJ volunteered to bake them, a bargain for me, taking into account that we have to mix at least 2 ½ liter of dough for this family of nine! I only needed to supervise the baking process.
CJ reminded me so much of my dad. My dad never used an egg lifter to turn pancakes, he always flipped them. CJ tried once and it landed perfectly in the pan, from there on he also didn’t use an egg lifter…
Heidi-Mari prepared some chicken mayonnaise and made us the most delicious chicken mayonnaise pancakes for lunch.and having more than his share of pancakes!
