Black Forest Macarons for The Darkest Month

Black Forest Macarons #5

Apologies for the doom and gloom, dear reader. Now that I've recovered from my post-Sales high (more on which below), the January blues are kicking around like a houseguest who's overstayed their welcome.
Only yesterday, I woke up, while it was still dark.  Thinking it odd how refreshed I felt, considering it must only be 2 a.m., I turned on my torch and checked my snazzy new bedroom clock.

**Post Edit: The middle butterfly on this clock had fallen off the wall when I got up this morning, obviously too depressed by the lack of light, to bother defying gravity.**

Breakfast Club: Blueberry Buttermilk Pancakes & Easy-Peasy Lemon Curd

Blueberry Pancakes with Lemon Curd & Yoghurt

Greek yoghurt is my 'breakfast gravy'. It meshes granola, fruit, cereal and smoothies. It's more versatile and more satisfying than regular yoghurt, as it's higher in protein. So it was fairly easy to come up with something to submit to this month's Breakfast Club, hosted by Sarah over at Maison Cupcake.

These pancakes are nice enough with maple syrup, but teaming them up with sour & salty strained yoghurt and sweet but tart lemon curd, makes for a fresher, more satisfying breakfast, with more texture and variety in each bite.
