The picture above is one I found at art.com. It is my absolutely most favourite breakfast ~ strawberry jam on toast....with lashings of real butter. Mmmmmm....now that could just melt me right there!
Have you ever noticed that when you can't have something, it's the very thing that will drive you to distraction? I'm not eating a lot of wheat right now, so I really, really miss having a piece of homemade wholemeal bread, toasted and topped with butter and jam. *sigh* I really miss it. Yoghurt and fresh fruit...even beautiful aromatic stone fruits... just don't hold a candle to a piece of toast, for me.
So yesterday it dawned on me that I could come close. I had bought some gluten free flour, so I made half a batch of my pancake recipe and had pancakes with strawberry jam.
Oh the pure bliss and joy. Ashamedly I ate all four. Next time I'll make a whole batch of mixture and freeze what I don't eat for breakfast. And next time? It'll just be two at a time!
