Well we greatly enjoyed our American pancakes during half-term, but that was then and this is now. Weekday breakfasts in term-time are taken on the run, with a 6am rise and a 7am bus to get to lycée for 8am. Pancakes don't fit that schedule. Nothing sociable fits that schedule.
But Saturday. That's a different matter ! So begins the new habit of Saturday brunch. Pancakes.
(We may even introduce bacon or sausages at some point.)
