Re: Pancake Recipes

How exciting - I'd forgotten about pancake day. As usual.

Rush to local Migros. It's shut. What? If they wanted to shut any earlier they'd need to open and then go back in time to cash up. Rush to local Denner. Shut. Staff inside behind locked door containing a notice which has too many s's in it.

Walk to main Migros. Still open! 10 minutes to go. Milk ... easy. Eggs ... easy. Flour ... is that it in the soft packet surrouned by packets of sugar? What the hell is Mehl? Feels like flour. Weissmehl? White-something. Has to be flour. Get home, check online. Phew. Flour.

Shopping back in London may have the opening hours, the better prices, and the variety, but you don't get that frisson of panic and excitement of knowing the shops could shut any minute and you might not know what you've bought.

Plus that power-walk to Migros has burnt off some calories. Extra pancakes for me!
