The first in what I suspect will be a long running series of posts on food and breakfast in particular. I’m a total supporter of the adage that breakfast is the most important meal of the day and am amazed at the amount of people who turn up to work having not eaten. For me breakie should be either a contemplative affair as you let your brain and body ease into the day or it should be a fun family time giving you the chance to chat, catch up and laugh together. When it really comes into it’s own is where you maybe have a bit more time (or have got up a bit earlier to create that time) and you put a bit more effort into it. One of my favs is scotch pancakes served with a variety of toppings, hot apple and pear goes well but these little beauties go with anything and are a firm fav in our house where they get whoofed down with all sorts on them – honey, chocolate spread, jam, marmite, cheese, crispy bacon bits, sugar and lemon. Make a batch of these let everyone dig in and watch the perfect start to the day unfold.
