I'm bad for not blogging for the last two months. Sometimes you just run dry. And nobody reads this anyway. Especially when I don't put anything new in here. So I'm back. Next week is Thanksgiving. The best thing about a holiday like this is sleeping late and really not feeling compelled to do anything. Working at home the temptation to do work is pretty powerful. You're in the office so why not get something done. But on holidays…nothin. Don't want to lift a finger.
So I start the day with a big leisurely breakfast. It's just one of my favorite comforts. So I'm going to share. Here's one of my favorite recipes:
Corn Meal Pancakes
Put one cup of white or yellow cornmeal in a bowl and add
1 teaspoon of salt
1 to 2 tablespoons of maple syrup
Stir in 1 cup of boiling water, cover and let sit for 10 minutes.
In another bowl beat
1/2 cup milk
2 tablespoons of melted butter
Add these to the cornmeal along with
1/2 cup of all-purpose flour and
2 tablespoons of double-acting baking powder.
Give a few good strokes and fry em up on a cast iron skillet.
Cover with hot maple syrup.
A few sausage links on the side make it great. And coffee.
And lay around in your robe and stocking feet near a sunny window.
