Grand Gesture

Actions may speak louder than words.  We will see.

At theold folks home, we have a new chef.  Make that "chef" in quotation marks. She came a couple of Sundays ago, with fanfare, a nice welcoming speech and all.  We have had some nice dinners since.

But she can't make pancakes. I sympathise for I cannot make pancakes either.  Always too large, or too small, burned or pasty.

But the pancake I was served this morning was weird.  Small, thick as a biscuit, burns spots, but not brown.  I just looked at it and said, "impossible" and rolled out of dining room.  It was a grand gesture, but got me nothing to eat.  (I had already had cereal, and I am sixty pounds overweight, so no damage was really done.)

So, will news of the grand gesture reach the cook? or the administrator?  Stay tuned.

Pancakes are hard to make, especially the larger ones.  I had to take 'lessons' from a friend before I got them right, and with that, can only make the Silver Dollar pancakes.  That was ok because my son used to eat them without butter or syrup.... just as a finger food!  I figured as long as he was happy, who else mattered??  LOL...   Perhaps an anonymous note to the new chef suggesting perhaps she should skip pancakes......  and buy a waffle iron instead!!  Good Luck, Chuck!!

My guess is probably not, but I'll wait to hear. Margo

PROBABLE WON'T MAKE MUCH OF A DIFFERENCE BUT HOPEFULLY THE REST OF THE THINGS WILL BE VERY TASTY

It's funny. I've never thought of pancakes as "hard to make". I guess I was taught the secret art of pancaking as a youngster. Mine always come out light, fluffy and evenly brown. The secret to making them all the same size is to use the same number of spoons full of batter each time. LOL

If the other meals are better than they've been, you've comeout ahead.  Maybe she'll get better at the pancakes, or give up on them.  Patience! - Karen

Pancakes are hard to make.  And when they aren't made right they do taste really bad.  Hopefully she will get better at making them.
