Owl Momma and the owlettes were over at the house. I had just prepared some batter for pancakes when they arrived. I mentioned to Owl Momma that pancakes are my nemesis - they never turn out. They are either burnt on the outside and mushy on the inside, or just never cook. So, she gave me a lesson in pancake making (although would not vouch for the taste as I did not use her "perfect pancake" recipe - which she needs to give me if she expects me to use it...hint, hint).
Then, I realized I had nothing to put on the pancakes so I grabbed:
1 bag of frozen strawberries
1/4 cup sugar (or more to taste)
1/4 cup water
Put it all in a pot and boiled it down until the berries were mushy. Then, I used the immersion blender and blended it up. Let it reduce down some more and then put it on the pancakes.
