We sent them well prepared. This is for the girls.

The best thing about today was finally talking to H&E on the phone and getting an email from Elisa. 

                        ” I am in California and this morning we went blackberry picking and then we made finished pancake.  The plane was way too long we watched the Olympics on the tv on the plane. Last night we got here at 3 pm* your time. Harriet and  i woke up 8 NY time and played Rat a Tat Cat.”

* I think she meant 3 am.
Finnish Pancake
   (always finished)
2 eggs
2 cups of milk
1 tablespoon sugar
1 cup of flour
1/4 teaspoon salt
Sift sugar, flour, and salt. Blend with remaining ingredients. In a 350 degree oven place a deep pie dish with 3 tablespoons butter to warm. When bubbly, pour in  batter and sprinkle with 1-2 Tablespoons sugar. Bake for 35 minutes. It puffs up and turns golden brown on top. Cut into wedges and serve with berries and a dollop of sour cream.
. . . . .
The second best thing about today was Fish Truck happiness. Billy and I shared a huge bowl of mussels with garlic and tomato for supper. Or maybe it is  that my friend Tom sold me a three-pound bag of garlic cloves today for planting this fall and the whole house smells amazing. 
 . . . . .
And the third best thing about today was my walk up the hill after supper.
 Now just sleep is on my schedule, at least for one night. Hope you are having a happy weekend.

  1. I love Elisa’s email. If Tom could eat flour, I would make a finished pancake for dinner–it sounds SO GOOD.
    Funny about the Beverly Hillbillies!

  2. We have a few Beverly Hillbillies downtown here in SF. We use only the King
    Arthur basic flour ~ who knew that man was a baker too? Hope the girls have
    a great time here and let me know if you need anything like museum tix.
