  2. Put the egg πŸ₯š in there and stir the flour/egg mixture
  3. Add milk πŸ₯› little by little until you have a smooth batter
  4. Let the batter rest for Β½ hour

Romance of this recipe: I love memories and it was only on this day that I found out that Sarah Gertrude Millin, Granddad Millin’s cousins wife, who is a famous South African author, also lived on the diggings of the Vaal river.

I lived for months in Hotel Riviera-on-Vaal in Vereeniging in the bridal suite with an oval whirlpool bath πŸ›€πŸΌ while Lee was managing the hotel.

Every morning I could be found in the pool πŸŠπŸ»β€β™€οΈ doing my lengths. On one sunny day there was a dragonfly that was flying with me like a little helicopter. It was a wonderful experience and I have never forgotten it.
