And you must have CRS! I think it can be blamed on too much time on the road?

I thought I had seen that abbreviation before, but I can't remember.

Re: Food that you love

Des plois

In French, we called them des plois. They are buckwheat pancakes. They are yummy. They come out looking almost grey because of the buckwheat flour.

Also, if my mom made regular pankakes, they were known as des crepes. They were thin. We would put butter on them, and sprinkle brown sugar, then roll them up and enjoy the goodness.

Something I like to do is find the middle ground between yummy and healthy. I make my own pancake mix that has red whole wheat, white whole wheat, and all purpose white flours, plus a bit of flax meal. The pancakes come out great, and they are much healthier than just white flour pancakes, and yet are fluffy enough and not solid bricks like 100% whole wheat flour pancakes. I do the same thing with making bread, and now I'm thinking about making my own tortillas. I seriously need to stop eating so many white flour tortillas! Rice is yet another such item, where the brown rice is just real heavy, earthy, and just not right for certain dishes; so I will sometimes mix it half and half with white rice to take the edge off the "brown-ness" of it. Only hassle is the two grains have different cooking times. I also like to make rice by using 2/3 white rice and 1/3 quinoa mixed together. They both cook the same time, so I can just dump them in the pot together and it's ready in 20 minutes. The quinoa gives it a very pleasant nutty flavor and just a bit of chewy/crunch, and yet the character of the white rice remains.

Getting back to pancakes, I also like to mix different maple syrups together. I get the good stuff (grade A 100% maple syrup) at Costco, and then I get a bottle of the cheap "fake" maple syrup, like Log Cabin, Aunt Jemima, etc. (basically just maple-flavored high fructose corn syrup), and then I mix them half and half. My parents did this when I was a kid, and I just continued the practice in my adulthood. I'd just use the good stuff, but it's expensive!

Re: Food that you love

Although I have not made these sandwiches in many years, I used to like them. Now that I am writing about them, I may just go to the grocery store and get the ingredients.

This sandwich is known as the Fluffernutter. Put peanut butter on one slice of bread. Put Marshmallow Fluff on the other piece of bread. Put them together, and you have a Fluffernutter.

The next sandwich is with peanut butter and sliced bananas. YUM.
