I discovered about two weeks ago that KFC is now doing breakfast, which I find a bit strange considering 'KFC' stands for 'Kentucky Fried Chicken' and there is no breakfast item I can think of that corresponds with fried chicken. But apparently they now do bacon roll-type things, egg and sausage muffin-type things, and blueberry pancakes.
It's their massive banner with 'BREAKFAST from 7am', or something like that, and a large stack of blueberry pancakes dripping with syrup that has sparked my latest pregnancy craving. Ever since I saw that banner a couple of weeks ago, all I could think of was blueberry pancakes. And blueberry juice. And blueberry muffins. And blueberry madeira cake. And blueberry yogurt.
So tonight, as unhealthy and unbalanced a meal it was, I made blueberry pancakes for tea. The kids were ecstatic. Scott was delighted. Scott said to them, 'Mummy is great at making pancakes, isn't she, girls?' I said, 'Betty Crocker is great at making pancakes' because I am a devout follower of Bisquick, and even have to pay ridiculously high prices to buy a tiny 500g box of it, since it's imported, but it's well freakin' worth it. And I bought fresh blueberries for the pancakes, but in the end, reverted to my mom's way of doing blueberry pancakes and used frozen blueberries instead. Somehow, the frozen ones just fry up so much more... juicily and... plumpily. Mmmm.
Now I am over my blueberry craving, but I still have a huge pack of frozen blueberries and a punnet of fresh blueberries to eat up. Fresh blueberries can go into the kids' lunches and the frozen can stay, you know, frozen, so I don't think they will go to waste. And I'm willing to bet next time I pass KFC and see those steamy stacked blueberry pancakes drizzled with maple syrup, I will quite likely need to buy another box of Bisquick and have another pancake supper, because no one has ever photographed blueberry pancakes in a more tantalizing way than KFC has.
