What to do, what to do, with those pancakes....

..... left over from breakfast. The ones that you made lovingly from buckwheat, egg, butter, ginger, cinnamon. The ones left on the serving plate. Oh what to do with those?

Bag 'em, freeze 'em, then toast 'em. How good is that??

I say, if Pilsbury can do it, so can I!!!

Take your left over pancakes

Cut up some parchment paper

Stack the pancakes between the parchment paper

Put them in a bag

Toss them in the freezer.

When you are feeling like a tasty pancake(s), just grab your bag out of the freezer, take your pancakes and pop them in the toaster. This only works if the pancakes are not the size of Texas. I usually make three to a pan in a 12" cast iron skillet. The parchment paper makes it easy to grab individual pancakes. They tend to stick together other wise.

Quote of the day:
The Garden
By WE Benton

A rose and a ragweed, side by side,
Stood enjoying the sun.
Each of them sharing the selfsame soil,
Neither envied the other one.

Both would be gone and forgotten so soon.
What matter their color or birth?
Together they'd wither and fade and return
Again to the dust of the earth.

Would we could walk in the garden more.
There's something the caretaker knows:
Nature plays no favorites there
Whether ragweed, thistle or rose.
