Pancakes for breakfast (FOR Daddy!)
Andrea made sure she had her alarm set for early enough; but she was so excited that it had barely beeped before she turned it off - and better that way, not to wake Anna Min.
It would be the first time she tried to make pancakes (or, as she'd read those were refferred to in the USA, 'crêpes'); so she'd carefully prepared herself the night before, making sure the recipe was detailed enough, and that they had all the ingredients. She stirred the mix easily enough; it gave her a little pause to try and determine if it was with the right thickness, but she decided it would show when she started cooking them, and carefully turned the stove on, placing the pan with just an as small a drop of oil in as she could manage, then watched it heat.
Taking a deep breath, she poured a small ladle of the mix into the pan and tried to make it spread that it would make a circle. Only it didn't work quite as she'd seen it happen... It because sort of... angly, and with holes. She frowned at it, and watched it concnetratedly for when it might be cooked enough to turn it.
And the flipping of it turned to be more difficult than it seemed when it was done by somebody else too, but after a few tries, she succeeded. By which time that side of the pancake was almost burned.
Andrea gritted her teeth, then carefully turned the burner lower.
She was going to make good pancakes, she was!
And she got the hang of it by the fourth one. Turning the heat down was an intuitive, but good idea. Her pancakes became more normal-looking; she even started to learn how to guess when it wasn't too early to start turning them so they stayed in one piece. And she
In about a quarter of an hour, she'd gotten down to actually letting her attention stray while the pancakes were cooking.
She even made sure to go and check how much of the chocolate spread they had, so she'd know whether to keep it all for daddy or there would be 'nuff for everyone...
So when Remus finally made his way downstairs for breakfast before going to school, there were enough for everybody, and mostly? For him.
