The Perfect Mothers Day


What would your perfect Mothers Day look like?
 
 My Mothers Day would be with my family.... 

I would love to start the day with Gluten Free blueberry and banana Pancakes...

Doesn't that sound good?

 

You know its always about the food! 




3 ripe bananas
6 organic eggs
1 cup / 100 g shredded coconut
1/2 cup / 70 g fresh blueberries or thawed frozen
1 tsp ground cinnamon
coconut oil, for frying

 Make the batter: 
Peel the bananas and mash with a fork. 
Whip eggs in a bowl and mix it together with the mashed bananas. 
Add shredded coconut, blueberries and cinnamon and stir to combine.
Fry the pancakes: 

Heat coconut oil in a frying pan on medium heat. Pour 3 small portions of pancake batter in the pan at the time and fry the pancakes on both sides. Serve with shredded coconut and blueberries and dust with cinnamon.

An orange juice drink and maybe some bacon with those pancakes!








And there has to be flowers... 
all over the house...
What would Mothers Day be without beautiful flowers?






How lovely would Carolyne Roehm's table setting be looking over the garden...

But.....
