A Few Notes on Producing and Acting and Coconut Pancakes

Oh the life of an actor. It’s a strange career choice to make, pretending to be somebody you aren’t. Creating characters and living in them. Living chunks of your life walking in another person’s shoes. Being an actor is wonderful, chaotic, difficult, exhausting, elating and defeating, often within the same week or day. Add producing to the mix and the whole thing is multiplied a thousand fold. There is something wonderful about taking creative control, about creating your own work. It’s been a crazy month and a half of rehearsals and we are in the home stretch. If you are in the Toronto area and feel like taking in some theatre all the information is on the above poster! If you are interested in the actor side of my life you can check out the website for my theatre company http://www.snowdropproductions.com and my personal actor website http://sarahwhite.workbooklive.com.
And now, for the pancakes. I have just one picture of these delightful pancakes. I made them on a Sunday morning before a long day of rehearsals. I am taking today to do absolutely nothing so that I can rest up and be prepared for the run. Watching netflix, drinking an entire pot of tea, the good stuff. These were really, really delicious. Light and fluffy, perfect with a side of bacon right from the butcher (or no bacon if that’s your preference) and some chopped up fresh oranges.
