I just thought I should let you know that this beautiful person called saying they're coming over later and to please make oatmeal pancakes.
Ok, it wasn't that random, we talked about it before and I bought all the condiments, but I wasn't planning on making it any time soon, if ever. I think it was one of those things I bought when I found myself at Ebeano and I actually had nothing to buy (some times I don't want to go home I wander along the aisles of one store or the other and end up buying things that I don't need).
So, Anyhoo, I'm about to make oatmeal pancakes. And I'm telling you this because?
I have no idea. I think I'm just stalling. Because I don't think I'm going to eat it. No matter how good it tastes, "oatmeal pancakes" sounds like an oxymoron to me. It sounds wrongish, but hey, I have nothing to lose right?
Anyone ever tried oatmeal pancakes?
Ok. I typed the above two days and then I got caught up in one of those roller coaster moments and this one is still spinning. Apologies for my absence... Well I did eventually make the pancakes.
There's aunt Jemima syrup (I'm not a syrup lover but you might need some syrup with your oatmeal pancakes to really enjoy it). But when the idea behind the whole thing is a healthier diet/lifestyle, you have to go for the healthier options. This 100% organic maple syrup is as healthy as they come.
I had a bite and although it was nice I settled for my original plan; Irish potatoes, steamed veges and fish. The Pancakes were too light for dinner. It'll make for a great breakfast but certainly not for dinner, unless you're ready to cheat and again eat later at night, which defeats the purpose. It's a lot lighter than the conventional pancakes.
And while we're at it, my guest, I and many others would love to know this, do you know of healthy alternatives to regular foods or fatty foods? For instance my Aunty makes cakes with ground wheat and brown sugar, and it tastes pretty good! Give me more tips please.
Hmm. Guys I've written this post over the span of three days. I left home early yesterday to try and catch a morning flight out. On getting to the airport there was so much rowdiness (our aviation sector has so much work to do) and I just couldn't deal. I carried my bag, entered a cab and left. But I didn't come home till just a few minutes ago, I didn't call to tell anyone I didn't travel anymore either, so the maid obviously wasn't expecting me.
There was a brand new Range Rover parked at my gate and being the only single chica in the vicinity (or so I thought), I thought the person must have been waiting for me. I approached the car and was stunned to see our maid nervously stumbling out of the passenger seat. Issokay. When the owner is away the mice come out to play. SMH.
Or am I just irritated because it was her and not me the Range came to see?...
