Every now and again, all a girl wants is breakfast for dinner. There’s something pretty soothing about whipping up some eggs, frying up some bacon or stirring up some grits AFTER a long day. Make no mistake, breakfast for dinner requires planning and orchestration…if it didn’t, we would just make the breakfast foods we love for breakfast, right!? But, who really has that kind of time in the morning? Between dogs tapping their paw at the door needing to pee, making lunches, putting out the trash and the recycling, locating missing items, finding a clean…nevermind, and maybe, exercising, most of us are lucky we have time for an Eggo, let alone Eggs Benedict.
Can I get a witness?
It was my turn to cook on Tuesday and I made Breakfast for Dinner…Buckwheat pancakes with real butter, thick SLAB bacon (have you seen my fish oil?) and maple syrup. We also had a fruit salad in the lovely traveling salad bowl and, vodka-ginger liquor-blood orange cocktails...we needed a proxy for the orange juice.
I used the buckwheat pancake recipe I posted a couple of weeks ago and, I must say, they were as good as they are down the shore - I was worried because you know how everything tastes better down the shore.
So, first I assembled all the ingredients.
Then, I mixed the wet ingredients...then the dry ingredients, incorporated them...
Cooked the flapjacks on the griddle and…ladies and gentleman, I present Uncle Bill’s Buckwheat Pankcakes!
These are some good pancakes...really.
