Fabulous February

We love Feb, not only is it a short month but there are lots to look forward to and sometimes you even get an extra day.  However we will not see an extra day until 2020, when the next Leap Year occurs.

Pancake Day (Shrove Tuesday 13th) is nearly here, don’t you just love pancakes.  There are so many recipes from savoury to sweet?   And they are all yum!  

Here is a quick basic recipe to help you on your way to making your delicious pancakes:

200g/7oz plain flour

350-400ml/12-14fl oz milk, or ½ milk ½ water for a thinner, lighter pancake

2 large eggs to be lightly whisked

A pinch of salt

And vegetable oil for frying (serves four).     Then flip.

Followed by Valentine’s Day on Wednesday 14th - the day of celebration and love.  The day originates as a Western Christian feast day honouring an early Saint named Valentinus, nowadays it is a day of romance. Don’t forget to send those flowers and cards and isn’t it romantic to keep those cards anonymous.
