Let them eat crepes!
 Piled high with chunky guacamole, eggs, crispy bacon and roasted zucchini and onions. All washed down with a perfectly chilled glass of iced tea, well, several perfectly chilled glasses!

 This morning I realised that we had run out of bread and potatoes, which meant no toast or hash-browns, which just happen to be two of my favourite sources of breakfast carbohydrates. Feeling very hungry and highly annoyed at our lack of starches, I decided to try my luck at making crepes. They turned out pretty good but weren't as thin as I would have liked. It's very easy to whip up a batch, they're perfect for a lazy weekend breakfast or brunch. I'll post the recipe below, you'll end up with about 6-8 crepes.


 
Three Step Crepes

1 cup of flour
2 eggs
1 cup milk and water mixed (I prefer more milk than water)
2 tbsp melted vegetable margarine (or butter if you like)
A pinch or two of salt
  1.  In a bowl, combine the flour and the eggs, slowly add the milk and water, stirring to combine. Throw in the salt and butter and BEAT until completely combined and smooooooth! 
  2.  Very lightly oil a frying pan and when hot, pour the batter in. (I used about a 1/4 cup for each crepe) Cook the crepe until the bottom is golden brown, then FLIP and cook the other side. 
  3. Serve with your favourite breakfast sides. My favourites are roasted zucchini and onions with eggs! 

What's your go to breakfast carbohydrate? Have you tried roasted zucchini's and onions?
YOU HAVEN'T???  We can't have you missing out on that can we? Try it! I'll post a recipe soon. Promise.

HAPPY FRIDAY
Yup, my summer is definitely on a roll! I had a great time yesterday despite things not going quite as I had planned. In my head I'd  had it all planned out, the day would begin with me whipping up loads of fabulous mouth watering dishes, then I'd head to the beach with the girls and we'd spend the day soaking up some sun and salt water.

Uh huh THAT was the plan. So on to what actually happened! I got into the kitchen, and realized just how much work whipping up loads of fabulous mouth watering dishes entailed, and believe me,THAT was not going to happen at 10:30 on a Sunday morning, so I climbed back into bed and watched reruns. Very blah, I know. BUT later in the day I raided the fridge and scored, I found leftover lamb and BBQ chicken, so a tin of corn was opened, ripe plantains fried, fresh wood baked bread bought, cider chilled and a pretty patch of sand on Ffryes beach claimed as our own. We soaked up more sand than sun or salt water but we did have a pretty good time.







My summer is definitely going to contain more than a few lazy Sunday afternoons. What's your summer looking like? What have you done so far?  Any special plans, trips, vacations, any dreams of embarking on salt water induced adventures?
This is how my weekend began, a sunset on the beach. Followed by an oh so very lazy Saturday. And now I've got a gorgeous Sunday to make use of. I finally feel like my summer has began.Now I'm gonna go claim my space in the kitchen, make some eats, pull on a t-shirt dress over my bikini and head to the beach.
I can feel the euphoria encroaching!


What are your plans for today?
Happy Sunday x


Aww shucks, it is hot! The windows and doors are flung wide open and constantly looking up at the ceiling fan to see if it's still spinning is making me dizzy. I'd give up use of my middle toe for a week to put an end to this heat!My momma is off work for a couple of weeks so a few days ago I went to spend the day with her and boy did we have a fantastic time. I swear we ticked a few thing off of that imaginary "Things Caribbean People Do"  list!! 

We went to the backyard and collected eggs, which was very exciting for me because I actually got to see a chicken lay one. Seriously the chicken popped it right out! It wasn't very slimy or gross or anything! Then we said hello to the hens and thank you for the eggs and went inside to make breakfast. Hash-browns, eggs over easy, strawberries, turkey baloney,  fried onions, salty cucumbers, YUM-O!!!


After breakfast we walked about the yard inspecting the trees. My momma is a farmer at heart. The mango trees and pumpkin vines were doing very well! I cant wait for them to be ripe for the picking! I think that my nephew should become a vet, honestly! He's added two turtles to his every growing pet collection and his rabbit had babies last week!


 

We chewed on sugar cane until our jaws were aching and sore and our mouths and hands were sticky from the liquid sugar. Later on in the afternoon my brave mama climbed up into the coconut tree and we sat cross legged on the hard dirt ground while we drank sweet coconut water and ate semi hard flesh until our bellies were full!


 I think I'm gonna get some more of those yummy eggs from momma, I'm craving poached eggs and some very flaky pastries...How weird is that?

Have Great Saturday, Cheers to the Weekend (is that right?)
