Last month my friend Syble and I took a day trip to South Georgia on a quest for fresh fruits and vegetables to till our freezers or in Syble’s case her canner. I don’t do much canning. Pickles are about my extent of canning, but she puts up beans, peas, and tomatoes. We found just what we were looking for Silver Queen corn, cream peas, pink-eyes, butter beans, tomatoes, watermelon, Athena cantaloupes, and peaches. I love peaches and last year for some reason I did not buy any and I regretted it all year. So this year I picked up a box.
Farmer’s markets are all the rage right now. It seems that home grown and organically grown are important factors for shoppers today. I know that it is for me. For the last four summers I have done some of my vegetable shopping at Waldrop’s Farm. Until this year it was just a small stand beside the road. You would just drive up, choose what you wanted, and leave money in the jar. Now it is quite different and I love it! Just look at what Allen built.
These are absolutely the best pancakes that I have ever made. The tangy taste of the pancake with the honey and butter is perfect!
This is the third time today that I have prepared pancakes. I know I am a crazy cook! Not really. I just walked out of the door without my camera this morning. I’m really glad that I forgot it otherwise I would not have made this combination.
In class today I used one of the variations of pancakes on the Bisquick box that makes a light and fluffy texture. I added very large frozen blueberries which thawed as I mixed the pancakes. As they came off the griddle I dusted them with powdered sugar. They were devoured by the starving teens that were left with chins that sparkled with sugar dust.
