Saturday Centus – Wk#157 – Prompt: “Melt butter in a large skillet over medium-high heat” – 109 words – “Fever”

03 May

“The Art of Pancakes”… What a title for such a simple recipe yet I was lost in thought as the broadcast droned on.

Melt butter in a large skillet over medium-high heat,” the voice continued.

How many times in our lives have we been lost in those mundane moments?

She stirs. I gently stroke her head still too warm. Her eyes again close.

The voice, “Cook until golden brown.”

The night had been long as anyone with a fevered child knows. My eyes slowly closed…

“Mumma?”

Her call brought me back to my senses. Her temperature was returning to normal.

“Can I have pancakes?”

“I know just the recipe.”

    You have captured a classic childhood moment here with these words.

    Gosh. I miss my kids being little.

    And now I want pancakes, too!

    Cute use of the prompt.

      Thanks for the comment.

      People who care about and for children can look back at many shared memory-making moments. While I’ve never had children of my own, I have had hundreds in my classes with an age range of four to twelve. They have given me many good memories. 🙂

      Thanks for the comment.

      Children can give us many moments to remember, sometimes sad but mostly happy. 🙂
