If that is a sandwich, you need to try again.

I'm thinking that my property taxes will drop this year.

Blueberry pancake? Either way, looks yummy.

I don't think that's a potato pancake.

Chef Mojo said...

Berry stuffed griddle or pan cake.

Looks good from here. No mean feat, that.

I always thought there was something familiar about Axl Rose's style of dance, but I could never put my finger one it.

Until today, when a saw recent video of Davy Jones where he claimed Axl Rose stole his dance step.

Jones was right!

Hate to say it, but I think we're ready for 3 word captchas in cunieform and Sanskrit.

If Made by Meade, it's probably sweet potato.

WV "ofixime" Just think Hatman.

Rusty said...

Is that a crepe pan?

And what is that thing anyway?

I'm adding Meade's blueberry pancakes to my bucket list.

Is this what pastors and parents have poured into us?

A policy pancake.. that looks better than that protesting pie from the other day.

Ann Althouse said...

The pan is an old fashioned cast iron griddle.

It's well over 50 years old. Maybe 70 or more.

Lem said...

Speaking of Most Valuable Pees..

Braun's sample taker says there was nothing unusual with taking the sample home overnight.. he did it many times before.

Ann Althouse said...

The food item is half of an unusually large blueberry pancake, and caplight is correct that Meade made it.

He makes blueberry pancakes almost every morning.

When I was about six, the girl across the street of the same age had been born a leap year baby.

When we got into arguments, the meanest thing I could ever say was, "Oh yeah, well you're not even two years old!"

Freeman Hunt said...

I still don't have to listen to her because she's only eight today.

Ha-HA!

The Steelers cut Hines Ward. That is sad. Hines had the moves on the field and on the dance floor.

Oh Man, this is AWESOME being in this time warp thing with you guys innit. It's like time holding still while the whole universe clockwork mechanism thing it's based on catches up.

I've notice one good Blogger change..

If I may..

When you search the blog now you get (not infinitely) but multitudes of hits.

My retarded brother was born on the 29th, and so turns 13 today.

Happy birthday, Timoteo.

I was going to guess that it was a calzone. The word means trouser leg in some Italian dialect or another though I can't establish that it is a word used in that sense in modern Italian.

Cast iron pans work pretty well for pizzas and calzones. Put that griddle in a 500 degree even for about 30 minutes, dust with a little corn meal, and put the pizza or calzone on it and pop it back in the oven for 5 to 15 minutes, depending.

You can also build a pizza in an oiled and cold cast iron frying pan and then put it in a really hot oven. Takes a bit longer than you would need with a hot griddle.

This is not a new idea -- cast iron pizza pans have been available for a long time. We have a Le Creuset one.

So I get out a box of Q-tips and it says on it do not insert in ear canal so there went that plan.

They make them the perfect size to suggest a specific function and then tell you not to do that.

I made a thing as a teen that was pretty good for a scrawny kid. It was a simple pancake from a mix but it has egg and milk and butter and those are all good things, and then jam is spread half way when the pancake is flipped. The result is a semicircular pancake PopTart. I made it about ten times.

We used pancake mix because it was convenient and because it seems specialized and scientifically exacting, like chemistry, and we could trust companies to handle that better than we could do ourselves. We preferred the product tell us what to do, we would comply, and the result guaranteed. We didn't think about it to realize we had all the things that go into pancake mix already, flour, sugar, salt, baking powder, if we did realize that it wouldn't have mattered, the convenience products with their instructions on the back were the way things were done and those elemental things were measures of last resort.

Ah. Well seasoned , then.

I wonder if the new left-hewing comment format was done to improve how Blogger works on more devices like smartphones and tablets.

That's a common problem that usually results in a watered-down look and feel. This is definitely a step backwards, at least for regular computer users.

I just read on BigHollywood that Andrew Breitbart passed away last night.

I said the same thing... about my arms and my genitals.

John M Auston said...

I'll be the first to say it. You just KNOW there is much celebrating on the Left today. It's who they are

Breitbart dead. RPI, Andrew. Rest easy, happy warrior . We'll get'em for 'ya.
