Shrove Tuesday may already have been and gone, but Simon our Executive Chef has given us a recipe for a tasty Pancake. Maybe you could practice your Pancake making skills now so they will be perfected by next year!

8oz Plain Flour.
A Pinch of salt.
3eggs.
1 pint of milk.
2oz Melted butter or vegetable oil for the pan.

Sieve flour and salt into a bowl, add the eggs and half of the milk and whisk and gradually add remaining milk. Whisk in butter and allow to stand for 1 hour. Heat a little oil in the pan, pour a small amount of mixture into the pan, moving the pan to ensure the bottom of the pan is covered. Cook for one minute before turning over and cooking for a further minute until lightly golden brown.

“My mother had a short stay at St Michael's but she was looked after and cared for excellently. Mum was very poorly but nothing was too much trouble for the staff at St Michael's. It was a very caring home and kept spotlessly clean. There was plenty going on and the social team didn't leave those out who were unable to leave their rooms even if they went in and had a chat or read a book with them. Receptionist very kind and helpful.”

“My mother was admitted for respite care and stayed for another six weeks. The staff quickly got to know her likes and dislikes and managed her path to good health with humour and great patience. Mum was encouraged to participate in the many activities, which meant that for the first time in many years she was socialising. Her medical treatment was properly maintained and whenever I visited her she was clean and well groomed. St Michael's care does exactly that, care! Thank you.”

“My step mother was admitted to St Michael's after a 10-week spell in the Hospital. She had previously been in a residential home.
We were very anxious as one hears such horror stories about some nursing homes, but our fears were soon put to rest. From the reception staff to the cleaners, carers and nurses they are, without exception, wonderful. Sadly she was very frail when she arrived and was only there for six weeks before she passed away. The care she received for the last part of her life was, without a doubt, the best she could have received anywhere. Our heartfelt thanks to all concerned.”
