Red velvet cupcakes, then breakfast
After our dinner at Cinnamon on the Park, we all went back to our place and Juji and Jay stayed the night. The next morning, we remembered the red velvet cupcakes Juji had made the day before – she’d brought half a dozen cupcakes with her!
I’d never eaten red velvet cake before. I liked it! It doesn’t just taste good, I love the red colour!
After a cupcake to start the day, Juji and I made breakfast. She fried the sausages and put on the toast while I made scrambled eggs, poured the juice and set the table. Jac may have crawled out of bed at this point.
There were two kinds of sausage – pork sausages and the last of a mystery continental sausage we found in the freezer. Juji just sliced it up and fried it in the same pan with the pork sausages. We had leftover pancakes in the fridge, but I was the only one who wanted pancakes. So I had sausages, scrambled eggs, pancakes and maple syrup. A few people have commented or emailed and said the pancakes look like crepes. Well, crepes, hotcakes, flapjacks, pikelets, blintzes (there are many more!), they’re all varieties of pancakes. And yes, the pancake Jac makes are a thinner crepe-style pancake.
As we sat eating on the patio I thought I heard a little noise near the fence. It was that naughty Pixel playing in the garden bed. See her? :)
