One of the blogs I list is Home On The Range (aka, mausersandmuffins). Brigid is a gifted and imaginative cook. I admire that.
The cooking around the ERJ ranch tends to be a little more basic, although at times it is no less imaginative.
Kubota and his friend were whipping up brunch. I was grinning like an idiot because it reminded me of those days in the prime of my life....camping with the Boy Scouts.
The menus were vast:
- Scrambled pancakes
- Pancakes poached in bacon grease
- Pancakes tatare
- Pancakes carbonara
- Pancake slurpies
- Pancake lumps
- Pancakes: Baked Alaska
- Pancakes with poison berry sprinkles
- High fiber Pancakes
- Pancakes with twigs and pine needles
- Pancake soup
- Pancakes al dente
- Silica augmented Pancakes
A few of the lessons Kubota and his friend learned today were
- Don't drop water into the bacon grease
- You cannot flip a pancake until it is at least partially cooked
- Don't drop pancake batter onto the floor
- Don't drop eggs anywhere
- Don't use the liquid from the milk jugs sitting in the recycle area
- You don't have enough syrup if you start with more pancake batter than pancake syrup
- Poached pancakes cannot absorb as much syrup as scrambled pancakes
- You cannot cook pancakes faster by turning up the heat....unless you favor Pancakes: Baked Alaska
Successes are claimed by a thousand fathers. But we 100% own our failures. That is why we learn more from our failures than from our successes.
The old Boy Scout motto: Be Prepared (pack a Girl Scout).
