I'll make you banana pancakes, Pretend like it's the weekend now

There are few greater pleasures than making yourself a delicious home-made breakfast, however one of them has to be making yourself a delicious home-made breakfast with a friend before heading out to see and Oscar-tipped film. That's what happened on Saturday before we saw The King's Speech, and yes, the jack Johnson lyric which serves as my post title is not entirely accurate. We made pancakes with baked fruit which included bananas and it actually was the weekend.

Anyway, for some reason we had a romantic candle-lit breakfast of American pancakes, recipe courtesy of Sam Stern, and baked fruit with yogurt, maple syrup and some lemon juice. I think it's very important to have a stylish apron for all culinary exploits, hence the close-up of my polka dot 'Le cook' apron. I like to wear a skirt and heels with it and go all 50s housewife every now and then.

On the other hand, if I was a '50s housewife, I don't think I'd fancy facing the washing-up...

Ok, so this is totally random, and possibly creepy and for that I apologize. Butttttt, I saw you comment on another blog that if you got a tattoo it would probably be a nerdy Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy reference, and I just felt like letting you know that this very weekend I will be getting just that.
Its subtle (forty two in roman numerals on my wrist) but still nerdy.
So anyway, after being a creep, I actually checked out your blog and hey! I like it. Def following now :)

Yum! I've never tried banana pancakes before, but now you just made me hungry! Haha, yes the 50's are the bomb, but cleaning up afterwards is definitely not my thing. :) Great blog girl, and can't wait for your next post!
