Pancakes Friday 5

RevGals Pancakes Friday 5

Today seemed like a good day to play the 2nd Friday 5 of this new year 2009 and besides, I love the subject, from Sophia. I'm going for both real and ideal examples.

1. Scratch or mix? Buttermilk or plain?
real: Bisquick or any kind of buttermilk mix and
ideal: 1/2 buttermilk, 1/2 buckwheat (both mixes)

2. Pure and simple, or with additions cooked in?
real: pure and simple and
ideal: cultivated or wild blueberries mixed in

3. For breakfast or for dinner?
real: anytime of any day for any meal or snack and
ideal: breakfast or brunch

4. Preferred syrup or other topping? How about the best side dish?
real: Country Kitchen or Eggo or similar syrup and
ideal: Grade B Vermont Maple Syrup (a preference that marks me as an outlander) plus lots of lightly cooked bacon. Whipped cream is a nice addition and a whole lot of sweet cream butter goes without saying in either case

5. Favorite pancake restaurant?
real: any restaurant or eating establishment anywhere and
ideal: we don't have them locally, but I always enjoyed the Village Inn when I lived in Utah and when I visit Arizona

i love your real vs. ideal answers! wonderful play--i miss Village Inn, there aren't any in NW MO (not that I know of anyway). wonderful play!

Very creative. I miss Village Inn too!

Mmmm, it all sounds so good! Cook's Illustrated is published in Vermont and they recommend Grade B. (But I have to plug the Maine maple syrup.) Word verification: hoonolf, which sounds like what I might say after eating too many pancakes.

Oh, I forgot all about buckwheat pancakes--I should see if I can track down a mix at Henry's or Trader Joe's.

sweet cream butter... yum!

Rev Dr Mom said...

Definitely with you on the grade B maple syrup!

Sounds good. I like the way you wrote for both "real" and "ideal." That took some thought!

It's good to see your blog and not just you on Facebook!
