Every year at the cemetery around the corner from us the workers place a flag at the headstone of every single man or woman who served our country. It is a beautiful and humbling sight to behold.
Flags wave in the breeze and bow when it is still to honor those who sacrificed their comfort and families on our behalf. I am very grateful for each and every one of them and for those who do so today, my son included. (Although he would say that isn't the case as he is still here in the US. Whatever.)
In honor of Memorial Day, I thought I would make a delicious breakfast that is decidedly...Welsh?! Yep.
These are Welsh Cakes. Marie posted the recipe on her blog this morning and I had all the ingredients to make them with the exception of the raisins. Mine had been invaded by ants so I used Craisins instead.
Oh. My. Gosh!
They are, as Marie says, scrummy! Delicious. Warm. Filling. Yum.
I spread a little butter on top of mine to be sure that the sugar topping really stuck. A bit of gilding the lily, I reckon, but oh so worth it.
Let's make this my Love This! Monday post for this week. Because I really do love these. So much that I ate four. Oink. Oink. (Thanks for sharing this recipe, Marie. They were a hit here at the Smith house.) Pop on over, get the recipe and make some for yourself.
I hope you all have a safe and joyful holiday.
