And will any guests be there? The backyard is kid friendly now. The best time to show up might be 9:45. I suggest we go with one of the recipes Lupe added in the Syrup Saturday Constants post (wrong post but who cares). If I don’t hear from anyone we will have Pork Chop Oatmeal and Applesauce Pancakes. Sander Syrup (the same as Mollet syrup but with Mapleine) will be served of course.
Check out the blueberries
The banana was for the babies
The usual crew – no visitors 🙁 . I need to start cooking earlier because the babies want to eat early. I would like to have a few ready for them when they start yelling. So Blueberry pancakes…we used a major brand complete pancake mix and a can of blueberries. They were OK but nothing special. We did not have blueberry syrup; we used just a little maple syrup because the pancakes were pretty sweet already. They made good snacking throughout the day.
The last of the fried mush
The last of the fried mush w/ syrup
All the regulars were there (Greg, Lupe, Jack, Henry, William, Charlie) and the mostly regular (Lauren). We also had a visitor. Sydney spent the night and syruped with us. She stayed for a good part of the day and was a big help with the kids.
This is the second time since we started seriously syruping that we have had fried mush. What did we learn? Well the basic recipe is good but last time I tripled it and this time I doubled it. I don’t know what is best. Doubling gave us enough food and allowed me to stop cooking in a reasonable amount of time. However, it might have been nice to have a little extra to snack on the rest of the day. On second thought, I don’t need to snack all day (I am a tad fat) so maybe doubling was best.
Another thing we learned is to put something like plastic wrap on the top of the mush before we refrigerate it. That will leave it without a hard top. The hard top makes it difficult to cut through without damaging the pristine slices.
I remember growing up that everyone always had trouble getting the correct consistency. I will have to say that I have not had that problem. Maybe I just have a good batter but I think it is all the Love I put into it.
NOTE: I showed this post to Jack and told him that I put pictures of what we had for breakfast today. He asked ‘why’.
That almost rhymes. This is a good place to include recipes that we have tried on a given Saturday or you can suggest one here.
Is this a good idea? Any suggestions?
