Dutch Pancake with Vanila Mousse and Cucumber, Grape Fruit Salad


MMM pamplemousse, I remember as a young child finding this word to be the most amusing of any of the words in my vocabulary, it has such a humorous sound to it. Any ways I love this fruit it has a taste and colour unlike any of the other citrus fruits, when paired with something sweet there is nothing I would rather have as part of my breakfast. MMM breakfast, the most important meal of the day, I am a firm believer that the way in which you greet each morning will play a strong role in the way the rest of your day will play out. Some of you night owls may disagree or you may just substitute morning with afternoon but the fact still stands that there is no better way to start your day than with a delicious meal. The great thing about breakfast is that you can get away with eating more calories because you have the rest of your day ahead of you to burn them off and the energy certainly helps to keep your spot in the rat race. This recipe is one that developed very spontaneously my girlfriend and I where grocery shopping and we wanted to create a recipe for the book so we wandered through the grocery store picking up ingredients that we thought would work well together. We brought them home and this is what we came up with.
