During the month of January 2011, we had some unusual weather that kept many in my neck of the woods at home. Snow is not a common sight in the Sandhills area of North Carolina. When the forecasts call for accumulation of the white stuff we crowd the grocery stores for milk and bread. I have not researched why these two items are important and it becomes the topic of several jokes during the winter storm events. If you have read my previous blogs you’ll not be surprised that milk and pancakes are the two items I prefer to have with or without snow outside. During the most recent winter weather I decided that I needed to make some pancakes, but I wanted to have some fun making them. I contemplated with the idea of making snowflakes. After I got the hand of dribbling the batter on the griddle, I was able to produce some snowflake-like pancakes. Although they looked unusual, they must have been cooked correctly, because they were devoured immediately after I shot a few pics. I also put together a snowman without any issues and remembered that I was hungry and quickly made some traditional round pancakes. Inspired by the snow and enjoyed inside the warmth of my house. Very much worth the effort!
I am including more photos than usual for this posting. Consider it a special centerfold edition!!!
