Tuesday seems a long time ago now! I had decided to have savoury pancakes for dinner, so I made the batter the night before (as it is meant to be left to rest for some reason). I have no idea where the pancake recipe is from, but they are all fairly similar I suppose. Mine was:
112g plain flour
210ml milk (I used Alpro light)
This made 6 massive pancakes; next time I would make them a bit thinner and cook a few more.
The recipe said to use a little butter in the pan while it heats up, but then I find the first pancake is not so good, so if you have a non stick pan it is probably fine without. I didn’t add any more, anyway.
Pour the batter onto the pan to coat, leave until the sides come away from the edge of the pan (maybe 30 seconds) and flip.
In the end I had one savoury one- I spread the warm pancake with cream cheese and marmite, and then rolled it up. With some rocket, to balance it out a bit!
OK, it does not look that great, but it was yummy. Seriously marmite and cream cheese go very well together.
The second one was a bit like a cheesecake filling- cream cheese and lovely meridian cherry spread.
A little later, I cooked some pancakes for dessert.
We both had them with nutella and sliced banana- scrumptious.
I was looking forward to them during my run after work on Tuesday, and they were all worth it.
Work has been busy this week (parents evenings) and I was very pleased to find a little parcel waiting for me when I got home one night.
As a thank you for doing some posts on their tea, Twinings sent me some tea- Everyday tea, and some fab looking black tea with echinacea, which will be very handy for warding off the germs from the children!
On Monday, we had some delicious wraps for dinner.
We roasted up some butternut squash (a bag of pre-chopped stuff), a red onion and a pepper (for about 40 mins I think). Then we put the mixture into a wholemeal wrap, sprinkled on some goats cheese, and baked in the oven for about 10 minutes, and served with some salad. I love the combination of squash and goats cheese, and this was just such an easy meal to make after work.
Well, onto the running. I went out twice this week- Monday and Tuesday after work. Considering I did my long run on Sunday, I was not too stiff compared to some weeks. I only did about 3.5 miles each time, but I tried to keep the speed up. Due to being at work I missed my Wednesday night run, and pump on Thursday, and today we are getting the train down to Brighton, so this week I am only going to manage 3 runs. But it can’t be helped, and hopefully the long rest will mean I am raring to go on Sunday morning. Next week is half term so I can relax and head out when I fancy it- I am soooooo looking forward to that.
Have a lovely weekend everyone.
