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.

“St Michael's Care gave the very best care to my friend. The home is so clean and has caring staff, cannot praise the home enough.”

Edward Oatley MBEAugust, 2017

“These are quotes from a letter I sent to St Michael's Care last week after my mother aged 103 died after having spent 6 years in the home.
"You have allowed and enjoyed mum expressing her personality, she has felt totally at home, she felt at ease with whoever was with her she has been able to express her thoughts and views as you made her feel "at home" with all of you."
"Thank you for enjoying her, encouraging her to do her washing, enjoying her moans and laughing and joking with her. You helped all of us understand the needs of the elderly."
"She constantly said how happy she was with all of you. We could go on and on and that is your strength. We will miss her, you will miss her but her memory is there for all of us."”

“My mother was under your care between Dec 2018 - March 2019.
The staff were on the whole very good and treated my mother with dignity and kindness. Unfortunately, the staff did not know my real mother's personality because it was affected by a terrible brain tumour. Thank you to everyone that cared for my mum and now she is at peace away from all her suffering.”
