Lemon Pancakes

Living thousands of miles from home you make new friends, a new form of family and those past people are only seen via technology or planned visits. Or sometimes you are just living life fully and you stumble into people you knew in your past life. The life where you know the streets and went through your awkward phases (almost all of them).

This weekend was a mix of both present and past when I ran into an old friend who’s couch I used to sleep on as a teenager. And another school friend from Germany and I spoke via that book face site. And to top it off these pancakes excite me beyond compare. I wish I had come up with these years ago because I don’t know how I lived without them.

It’s no secret of my love for citrus. You say citrus and I say weakness.

And these are tart and probably perfect served with tart greek yogurt or mascarpone, but I ate them with nothing and the zing on my tongue reminded me of why these work.

They are a perfect way to wake up.
