So sadly Beau doesn't like to cook much.
It takes a lot to get him into the kitchen.
But, there is one thing that he always makes...pancakes.
Why is he always the one to make these, you may ask?
Because I burn them.
Can I admit something to you? I sometimes do it on purpose.
I find that he is MUCH more willing to make food if he knows that I am terrible at it.
That's been my trick in getting him to make pancakes AND eggs.
Good strategy, huh?
Anyhow, we had delicious pancakes and homemade strawberry syrup
for breakfast the other morning.
I don't usually have fresh strawberries at home, only because they are ridiculously expensive.
But, the grocery store was having a buy-one-get-one-free sale this week and I had to jump on it.
So I made my first ever homemade strawberry syrup. Not only was it amazingly delicious and easy, but it made our house smell absolutely heavenly. Seriously, I wish my house could smell like that everyday. Mmmmm.
Want to make your own homemade strawberry syrup?
In a saucepan, add 1 cup of water and 1/2-1 cup of sugar (I used 1/2 a cup and it was perfect). Bring to a boil. Slowly add in 1 1/2-2 cups of mashed strawberries. Bring back to a boil and then reduce heat to low an simmer for about 10 minutes. If the sauce needs to thicken, add a tsp of cornstarch mixed in a small amount of water and add to saucepan for the last minute. Use over pancakes, angel food cake, or anything else you like. Enjoy!
