Pancake Day

So, today is Pancake Day. Great, I love pancakes, dripping with orange juice and sprinkled with sugar,mmmmmmm. However, as I’m on a diet – trying to get to see the number 9 on the scales (!) I’m not making any. My husband asked for pancakes but he’s also on a diet and when I said how many calories there are in a batch he agreed that we’d have to go without this year. The problem is that it’s difficult to only eat one.We had a very good system when my children were at home – one person cooked the pancake and then sat down and eat it while someone else made one. It worked really well cos the pancakes were always hot and fresh and crisp. But, with just the two of us we still want a whole batch and that’s too many calories. So, we’ll just have to eat the fruit we’d have had on the pancake and forego the sugar or syrup.

And so to tomorrow! Still not seeing number 9 but it is early days. Reckon it’ll be July before I see it!

Hi My name is Jane and I live in North Oxfordshire, UK. I started making greetings cards and jewellery, progressed to working with stained glass, played with a microwave kiln for small fused glass items and then went all the way with a studio and kiln. I then explored lampworking and enjoy playing with hot glass too.. I have also been a knitter and crochet(ter?) since childhood. I enjoy playing with colour - the brighter the better in my opinion. I attend craft fairs each year in the local area as my glass is attractive face to face. I also run workshops in my garden studio and love to share my skills with others.
