Pumpkin Ratatouille Pancake - Friday evening little love

Pumpkin Ratatouille Pancake - Friday evening little love

Pumpkin Pancake
Friday evening it is. I decide to curl up in front of TV with DD watching Ratatouille. Happy faces. TV screen and my DD’s company – together they make me feel a little less lonely on a Friday night. Then came scores and scores of recipes, cooking, French recipes are after all French to me. Bah! It all made my bong belly think “Wow Ratatouille, I didn’t know they made them like that.”. Hunger came calling next.

“Ma – Khide” , the French cooking and the bong kitchen inspired a cross connection. Then the pancake was born. The common thread was the pumpkin and flour, both of which were aplenty in my pantry as well as on TV.Time to roll up the sleeves to breathe life into the Pumpkin Pancake or shall I call it my ‘Pumpkin Ratatouille Pancake’?
