In our corner of the world we are about to celebrate Mother’s day.
Perfect time to treat your lady like she is special. Maybe she is not a mother but don’t let that stop you showing your appreciation. She might be a mother to pet or fun Aunty or even just a future Mum. Just find time to be extra nice to her.
Our family love pancakes and we all have different toppings we like. Have fun make interesting shapes or smiley faces or try some of the the more grown up recipes below.
So I’m going to give you recipe and some topping ideas.
1 C. self raising flour
1/2 tsp baking soda
60g unsalted butter
1 c. buttermilk (can substitute milk)
2 tbsp honey
1 egg lightly beaten
You can add blueberries to the mix and then top with blueberries, strawberries and maple syrup
My favorite idea
Icecream and crushed violet crumble or crunchie bar.
Pineapple and Coconut Pancakes
1/2 c sugar cooked over low heat til dissolved and caramel colour add 2oomls light coconut milk remove from heat stir in pineapple pieces.
Add 1 tsp coconut essence to pancake mix.
Layer pancakes and pineapple mix top with flaked coconut

Add an extra 1/2 cup of buttermilk to mix. Cook pancakes then layer olive tapenade salami and rocket lettuce, sprinkle with grated cheese put another pancake on top and cook in sandwich press.

Weekend started early with the alarm going off at 4 am Friday morning. Our wonderful son drove us to the airport (he has just got his licence).
Nice flight to Sydney weather quite mild. We just had a relaxing day. Caught a ferry to Manly and had lunch at the beach. Seagulls very cheeky, they stole a chip right out of my hand.
We went to the hotel to get ready for the evening. First stop a lovely restaurant for dinner, if you are interested in food I had slow baked lamb shank with polenta and my partner had fillet of venison. The Bistro Fax Cafe was a great place to dine. Both meals were delicious. We always share.
A short walk to the theatre to watch the live show “Jersey Boys”. A good show the story of Frankie Valli. A beautiful evening with lots of romance.

The highlight of the weekend was to be the collection of a little sports car. TVR Tuscan. We were going to drive it back to Brisbane with a stop over at Coffs Harbour. Well the god’s were not smiling on us. Just got the transfer permit organised and we were on our way. My partner comments that the car ahead of us is belching smoke, oh no it us sending smoke signals. We call a tow truck and take the car back to the car yard. Can’t get it fixed no mechanic available. Just a little problem when they put the bonnet back on the car after painting they left some wires dangling. They melted and they smoked. No road trip for us. The car yard pays for us to fly home a day early with no car. Oh well that was a disappointing. They will be sending it to us on the back of a truck later in the week. Shame no road trip for us.
Officially we are away all weekend. I’ll tell you what we did with Sunday tomorrow. There is always a Plan B.
The Woman & The Lawyer
A lawyer got married to a woman who had previously been married 12 times. On their wedding night, they settled into the bridal suite at their hotel. The bride said to her new groom, “Please, promise to be gentle. I am still a virgin.”
This puzzled the groom, since after 12 marriages, he thought that at least one of her husbands would have been able to perform. He asked his new bride to explain the phenomenon.
She responded, “My first husband was a Sales Representative who spent the entire marriage telling me, in grandiose terms, how great it was going to be.”
“My second husband was from Software Services: he was never quite sure how it was supposed to function, but he promised he would send me documentation.”
“My third husband was from Field Services and repeatedly said that everything was diagnostically OK, but couldn’t get the system up.”
“My fourth husband was from Educational Services, and you know the old saying – ‘Those who CAN, DO; those who can’t, teach’.”
“My fifth husband was from the Telemarketing Department. He knew he had the order, but he wasn’t quite sure when he was going to be able to deliver.”
“My sixth husband was an Engineer. He told me that he understood the basic process but needed three years to research, implement, and design a new state-of-the-art method.”
“My seventh husband was from Finance and Administration. He knew how, but he just wasn’t sure whether it was his job or not.”
“My eighth husband was from Standards and Regulations, and he told me that he met the minimum standards but regulations weren’t clear on how to do it.”
“My ninth husband was a Marketing Manager. Even though he had the product, he just wasn’t sure how to position it.”
“My tenth husband was a psychiatrist. All he ever wanted to do was talk about it.”
“My eleventh husband was a gynecologist, and all he ever wanted to do was look at it.”
“My twelfth husband was a stamp collector, and all he ever wanted to do was . . . God I miss him! So now I’ve married you, and I’m really excited.”
“Why is that,” asked the lawyer. “Well, it should be obvious. You’re a lawyer. I just know I’m going to get screwed this time!”
