Birthdays in the convent are quite celebratory centering a great deal around the meals. Today one of the sisters is having a birthday, so instead of eating breakfast in silence as we normally do, there will be much laughter, chatter and many exclamatory “Oohs” and “Aahs” as her meal is brought to her.
In this case she has selected a special puff pancake filled with fresh fruit, breathtakingly beautiful as it comes to her piping hot straight from the oven, all puffy and golden, with a whipped cream garnish and a crisp side of bacon curls.
What a happy entrance into the beginning of her new year. It’s hard to believe that so little effort could have produced something so impressive and delicious.
