Advent blog-a-long day 5
Quirky traditions. Do you have any? Earlier this year I had been craving this topping that my Grandfather used to put on pikelets, and I couldn't for the life of me figure out what this stuff was. The best I could do to describe it was "it's like a golden-syrupy-buttery-stuff". I finally asked my Mum what this stuff was, and she informed me it was indeed a golden-syrupy-buttery-stuff. My Grandfather would mix his Golden Syrup and butter together to form a paste and would smear it all over his pikelets.
And so a new tradition was formed in my household. Every time I make pikelets (which is quite often!) we now have golden-syrupy-buttery-stuff. I love that even though my daughter never got the chance to meet this most wonderful man, she knows a little quirky something about him. Oh, and he also liked cheese and jam sandwiches. Not quite going there.
