Since we were back from Paris, I have been slacking when it comes to cooking. I do not cook as often and to date, I have yet done any proper marketing at our traditional wet market. There seem to be endless reasons to eat out. We can be back at my parents’ place for dinner one day, and at my in laws’ place another day. Then there are gatherings at friends’ house, to try out a restaurant in town, or simply just hawker-hopping, East Coast, West Coast, Bedok, Newton, Old Changi basically island wide! There are just so many options when it comes to food and there is little motivation to cook at home.
I only knew that my cooking was missed, when Malcolm went ‘Mummy can cook nicer chicken rice’. I was flattered. It occurred to me that my boy grew up eating ONLY MY chicken rice. No matter what others say about Boon Tong Kee chicken, it can only come second best as he recognizes chicken rice taste the way Mummy cooks it and to him, that’s the BEST.
So when I whipped out some pancakes for breakfast over the weekend, because the house ran out of bread, the duo at home were over the moon. I am thankful that they are so easy to please and I was reminded once more, other than my own taste bud, THEY were the motivation behind all those tasty dishes and yummy bakes when we were overseas.
Here’s the recipe.0
