Just wanted to share some photographs from our lovely, heavenly, beautiful weekend away at the Mount View lodges, (highly recommend these.) It is hard to describe just how serene this place is, or how vast and never ending the view is.
Imagine seeing as far as the eye can see and hearing nothing but a few little birds, some leaves rustling and just....silence. It was unbelievable to fall asleep to total silence. In fact I actually woke up a few times the first night and couldn't work out why it was so QUIET. Waking in the morning to the sun rising...drifting off to sleep again...then waking and feeling refreshed and ready to meet the difficult day ahead of reading, chatting, eating and resting.
Did I mention the eating? There was appropriately plenty of it...and good eating too. Probably not the healthiest weekend in my life, but we didn't stand a chance as the lovely Mount View lodges come complete with homemade brownies (very delicious) and chocolate chip cookies.
Then there was my blueberry butter. Mainly blueberries, but still some butter there which I definitely do not eat a lot. Spelt wholemeal flour pancakes with leftover lemon & eggwhite mix from the Birthday Lemon Puddings the night before. I'm telling you, lemon pancakes are the best.
Ok so this is an attempt at remembering the recipe I threw together for the pancakes...it is basically just lemon pudding mix with more flour added, so you have to have Puddings the night before, damn!
Spelt Lemon Pancakes
(serves 2 / 12 x 10cm pancakes)
1 cup of uncooked Birthday Lemon Puddings leftover mix
Extra (approx. 1 cup) spelt wholemeal flour
Whisk the leftover lemon pudding mix because it will have seperated. Add the spelt flour, and whisk until smooth. If the mixture is too thick, add some more milk.
In a hot pan, cook approximately 2 minutes on each side (flip when some bubbles appear,) in a bit of organic butter. Serve with fresh fruit, yoghurt, jam etc....
We had fresh blueberrys, yoghurt & home made muesli on ours.
That view was just spectacular. I cannot get over it. I want to live there. Forever.
Did I mention they also left fresh eggs, bacon, field mushrooms, yoghurt, juice, milk, jams, tea, coffee, homemade oil-free muesli as well? Divine!
