I don’t go to work during the week, but we always wake up with daddy and have breakfast together before he heads out the door with a sloppy kiss from Jolie. On saturdays, however, we try to sleep in. In the last 15 months I haven’t slept past 8 am, but I’m learning to embrace it.
Jolie and I have started a new tradition. We make blini. Blini are Russian crepes, or thin pancakes.
It requires more than a just add water mix. I don’t use a recipe. My mother-in-law told me how to make it once. “About 4 eggs or so..” a bit of this, that, until you get the right consistency. I tried measuring this time so I could share a recipe but I’m really lazy. Here is a recipe similar to what I do, although I would double it!
The first blin is never perfect, and you have to eat it to make sure the proportions are right. Wait until the edges get a little crispy.Smother in Nutella, sprinkle some powdered sugar and lemon juice, or add a dollop of сметана (sour cream). They are also tasty by themselves!
