PAN CAKES WITH STRAWBERRY SYRUP


This Sunday morning I woke up with a bad headache. Lingering in bed I said to myself: "self ! you have two choices either get up and brave the day or pull the covers over your head and go back to sleep". I chose to get up only because I don't like being sick. I put on my comfort attire the long pink ,warm puffy robe and big pink puffy slippers and went downstairs.  Put the coffee on and set the table. What should I make for breakfast???. I saw the fresh large delicious strawberries that I've purchased a day before  on the counter. I decided to make pancakes with strawberry syrup. My child hood comfort food. (When we were kids and didn't feel well my mother also gave us toast smeared with strawberry jelly and tea with milk).  For this recipe I used 7-8 large strawberries enough for my hubby and I. The recipe is very simple, wash,  hull and cut strawberries ( I used 7-8 large ones). Place them in a small pot  add 1 cup sugar, 1/4 cup of water and two tablespoons of rum (alcohol evaporates as it boils but stabilizes the color) bring to a bubbling boil, turn heat down and simmer for 10-15 minutes, mash with with the back of a spoon. By the end of our breakfast I was glad that I chose to get up and did what I did and felt much better for it.

These were surely a perfect Sunday morning breakfast! But... when you were feeling a bit under the weather, wouldn't it have been the natural thing to do for your husband to make breakfast?
