Technically, the carbs were Sunday, but that was Blog Jog day, and they were overlooked. Since Om has to watch what he eats, and I have to keep fighting the weight issue when I'm not hiking, we don't do this very often. But, Sunday was a chilly, rainy, November day. As a child, the first fall day that really felt nasty was always pancake day. So, I made a batch. We like them thin. I put cranberries in them. Om likes his with warm store-bought syrup. I had dandelion syrup on mine.
We stood in the kitchen and ate them as they came off the griddle. That's not very "romantic," but it's wonderful to have really hot pancakes!
Now for the capers. Oh, you thought I meant the kind you can eat? You should know by now that I'll try to get a twist in the title! The capers are the kind you "cut," as in fooling around. There IS a reason I was doing this, as part of a video application for a job. I don't think I have a chance in the world of getting it, but I'd regret not even trying for a long time. That's all I'll say right now.
So, Om helped me make two little videos. The temperature was about 30 degrees, so that's good for the skiing, but we're a little short on snow yet. Yes, this is a joke. Don't worry if you are confused.
But, with a good camera angle it sure looks like I'm flying down that grassy slope.
The next caper looks much more suitable for the day. However, please recall my report on the temperature. I was FREEZING! Om said he was too, but I didn't feel very sorry for him- he had on long pants, coat, gloves, hat.
OK... you should go cut some capers of your own now.
