Om and I Goofed Off today. That began with a pancake brunch. We are something like pancake snobs. I guess we are actual pancake snobs. We really only like the ones I make from my mother's recipe. I make them from scratch and we like them thin.
They cook up golden brown and smooth. Shall I also mention that I really like my really old stove? I like the griddle in the center (it can also be changed out for a large burner for canning). The griddle doesn't get used as much as it did when we had boys at home, but I still find it very handy.
Here's the other thing about pancakes at our house. Now that it's just "us," whenever we do pancakes or waffles we never sit down to eat them. We stand in the kitchen, get all the stuff ready (Om like his syrup warmed up), and just eat them as soon as they come off the griddle. Om likes ordinary store syrup. My stack has elderberry syrup- a gift from Ester.
We had six pancakes each. I had dandelion syrup on my second stack. I don't know if I could choose a favorite between those two flavors. Since both of us are trying to eat less, pancakes are a special treat. Does someone look happy?
Does someone look unhappy?
Don't worry, we gave her a little treat. She's always worried about her stomach.
Then we watched two movies. I picked them somewhat randomly, but they were both pretty good (if you like that genre- which we do).
First we watched Frantic, a Harrison Ford movie. He and his wife travel to Paris, and due to a luggage mixup, his wife is kidnapped and he and the smuggler hunt through the city for the wife. I expected this to be one of Ford's mediocre movies, but it was very good.
Our second feature was An Eye for and Eye, with Sally Field and Keifer Sutherland. Sutherland is the bad guy (he does those so well), who kills Field's daughter. He is allowed to go free and Field seeks justice.
Not a bad day of goofing off for a little cooking and $1.50 in movie rentals.
