I’m having some fun at my hubby’s expense!
Hubby get’s this craving once in awhile to have pancakes for supper. I don’t make them often as it means there won’t be any vegetables for that meal. I don’t think my hubby is so different from a lot of folks in that he prefers his meat and pasta/potatoes above all else. It becomes a struggle to keep vegetables as an important part of the diet.
If you are about to announce a meal which consisted of lobster,rice and salad, which one of the 3 would you mention first? Would you be having lobster for dinner or salad? Meat is a prevalent goal in meal cooking for MOST American’s.
I thought I would casually grab some of what my man calls ‘weeds’ (meaning anything wild and green) to add to a few pancakes for an experiment. It was really clover and a little alfalfa. I tried to blender them separately, but it didn’t make them any smaller. I mixed two handfuls in enough dough to make four cakes. He eats more than I do so his share would be 3.
He didn’t miss a thing. He asked a little hesitantly and perhaps hopefully “are those for you?” “No” I said “I wouldn’t think of letting you miss out”. Silently I decided I would eat 3…maybe, leaving him with one to avoid mutany. No experiment is any good without a control, so I took a small bite which was absent of any coverings or decorations. It was a rather timid bite that by chance included a large leaf. …ickkk! The next bite was larger to make sure that, with the law of averages in play, I wouldn’t get more pancake than leaf. Hmmm – it was quite OK.
I have a motto: “Butter makes it better; Honey helps”. When both of those were added, it was undeniably good. In the 3 cakes I ate 1 1/2 handfuls of weeds enjoyably! Hubby? He didn’t complain, but did ‘t dare encourage me beyond that by clapping or anything :))
Think how you could use this for a rolled-up whatever. LOL!
