i knew this would happen

So, in my first post I said that I would try to focus on food in this blog, but there would be a possibility of me changing the topic of my blog...well the day has already come. I know that it has only been like 2[?] days since that first post, but I have already decided to abandon that idea. Well, maybe not entirely abandon but maybe step away from it and re-visit it when I feel like it.

I'm not much of a person to blog on only one certain topic so, I guess this really shouldn't come as a surprise to me.....

Now that I think about it maybe it would be OK for me to blog about food today. This is going to relate back to somethings which had happened yesterday, it is not all that significant but it got me thinking.....I'll tell you about what I'm talking about

Yesterday I went to a friends house for a welcome back party for a friend that unfortunately had to leave Australia and go to China for school. Now, this friend of mine, Daisy, had come back to Australia for a week during HER summer holidays. So we had gone to my friends house and for lunch it turned out that we were going to eat potato and pasta bake with spaghetti bolognaise.

I'm not saying that there was anything wrong with the food, it was delicious. But my friend's mum is Asian, yet she was able to produce such a wonderful dish that wasn't from her culture. I'm not saying that Asians aren't allowed to cook other foods if that is what you are thinking, but what I am trying to say that it is really wonderful that food from different cultures are finding there way into the kitchens of everyone, with no barriers or stoppages.

I think that might as well conclude this blogpost, but I would like to say one more thing.....This morning I had made pancakes for breakfast, but I has decided to change the batter a bit. Usually I add butter into the batter but this time I has left it out and I think that the pancakes turned out nicer than they normally do. The recipe I use now, well that one that I came up with is

1 cup plain flour
1 tablespoon baking powder
2 eggs
1/4 teaspoon vanilla essence
1/2 cups sugar
1 cups milk

You combine the flour, sugar and baking powder in a bowl. You then add the eggs and vanilla essence. You combine that together a bit, and then you gradually begin to add in the milk. You may not need all the milk so, you only add as much as you need. The batter is really if it is kind of heavy and thick. When you lift a spoon out of the batter there should be a thick layer of batter on it. Also make sure that the batter looks shiny and silky, make sure that there are no clumps of flour left in the batter. You can now start to cook the pancakes, you add a bit of oil to a non-stick pan on a medium heat and then you can ladle some of the batter onto the pan. When there are bubbles all over the top you turn the pancake and let the other side cook for about 30 seconds. Repeat with the rest of the remaining batter.

You are done, a quick and yummy breakfast all ready. Some people like pancakes with golden syrup, so you can add that if you like, but I'm fine with out it, so just enjoy your breakfast

Bye for now guys, I'll blog again in a couple of days!!
