It was mom’s weekend at my uni. this weekend meaning that the campus was swarmed by mother’s all wanting to shop, eat and drink their hearts out – including my mums!
All in all it was a good two days spent with my mother complete with shopping, eating, drinking and driving (the latter two not at the same time – just to clarify). To be more specific, my mom taught me how to drive stick and let’s just say I haven’t laughed that hard in a long time and a good thing we practiced in a parking lot because the experience wasn’t short of a few bunny hops. There were no casualties, although a few geese were playing chicken with me.
To start off a good Sunday I made my mums and I these pancakes and they were pretty delightful and made the apartment smell good too!
They are super simple to make and you could probably change out the fruit if you wanted too.
