Grocery shopping is one of those tasks that I don't really enjoy. I find it tends to make me frustrated looking at the great variety of 'food' products as well as walking past chemicals that we need to keep our families safe from all of those nasty bacteria. The words of Michael Pollan and his rule number 12 comes into my mind - "Shop the peripheries of the supermarket and stay out of the middle".
I took a walk through the aisles recently just to see what I was missing. Our supply of flour was running low so I knew we needed a top up. Sitting right a kiddy eye level was a packet of Harry Potter pancake mix. I'm a little unsure as to how this is any different to normal pancake mix. Perhaps there is some eye of newt involved somewhere? I perused the ingredient list and was amazed at what was in there. How can such a simple product involve so many strange ingredients?
We follow the Jamie Oliver 1 cup recipe. It is easy, cheap and tastes fabulous.
I love the bubbles.
The age old debate about the best pancake topping still rages in our house on a Sunday morning. The kiddie stick together with maple syrup while the grownups unite with lemon juice and sugar.
What is your favourite topping?
Take care and I hope you enjoy the rest of the weekend.
