Sunday: A special Sunday breakfast, 7 years ago today I went out dancing in London and a very strange Dutch man approached me and said “hey, are you having a good evening? What’s your name?” I took him home, made him pancakes and said see ya later kid 🥞 Who would have guessed that seven years later we’d be where we are now, married and living in China! I don’t believe in fate or luck, but I do believe in hard work and compromise. I wouldn’t be here without Mark and I’m so glad he’s by my side. Here’s to another 7 years (and then some!) ❤️🏳️‍🌈👬😍 - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - Waffles Royale, black pepper waffles with salmon, poached egg, homemade hollandaise and fresh dill 🙌🏼 some local Shanghainese strawberries and a cup of Sri Lankan tea 🍃☕️ - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - A Very Good Waffle recipe 1 cup plain flour 1/4 cup cornflour 1 egg 1 cup milk 1 tsp baking powder 1/2 tsp baking soda 100g butter, melted Pinch of salt - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - 1 - Preheat your waffle iron 2 - Combine all the dry ingredients in a bowl 3- Blend together the wet ingredients, add to the dry and combine.
