    Sunday Morning - Cottage Cheese Pancakes

    More like Johnnycakes since they have flour in the mix. 😄 I used my new 12” non stick Ninja pan and four just fit.

    Sunday Morning - Cottage Cheese Pancakes

    These are pretty spectacular. I’ve tried different recipes for these and this is as good as any. I’ll post my recipe screen shots below. Notes: re the cottage cheese…400gm = 1 2/3 C. Also…I used olive oil instead of canola. I also cut the recipe in half and that yielded eight 4” pancakes...

    HOT!

    About 65F now here with mild cool rain showers. It’s been crisp in the mornings, big fluffy clouds at mid day and showery in the evening. Love it.

    What tea did you have this morning...or afternoon?

    Well…Taylor’s makes it, but Yorkshire is a separate brand, or something. I have the Yorkshire Gold (which is very different from their standard Red) in both bags and loose leaf. I would strongly recommend the loose leaf and will only buy mine from TeaDog which gets the fresh stuff directly...

    What tea did you have this morning...or afternoon?

    Got a free sample of this (sample price is usually $4) with my last order. It’s Colombian Bold Breakfast Blend. They grow great coffees in Colombia and apparently teas as well. I don’t get all the chocolate reviewers yap about but it’s very robust with a fine malty black tea character. Here’s...

    What tea did you have this morning...or afternoon?

    Well, well, well. What have we here? Second cuppa this morning is Upton’s River Shannon Breakfast Blend. And with this one they hit a home run right outta my preferred flavor zone…or something. This has a profile very akin to Thompson’s Irish Breakfast…bold, smooth, brisk…outrageously...

    , Mr T…if you’re thinking of ordering tea, THIS is the one that I put on a pedestal above all others… https://www.teadog.com/taylors-yorkshire-gold-loose/

    What tea did you have this morning...or afternoon?

    Another new one here…Upton’s Scottish Breakfast Blend. Surprisingly this tastes just like their description, so I’ll just post that. “Blended from select teas of India, Sri Lanka, and China to appeal to those who favor an eye-opening experience in the morning, this broken-leaf tea yields a...

    I think you were maybe in the melons section instead of avocados.

    Wow, It's Hot!

    Yeah, we’ve bounced up to 95 F once thus far but that’s not uncommon here in the Spring. The wind changes from onshore offshore and it pops up for maybe a few days. But our Summer and continuous warm & fair days don’t really arrive till after the 4th of July. We’re almost exactly (within 30...

    The Feeling of Freedom after Both Doses of Vaccine

    To me, Fauci ultimately is a true Great American Hero. Not only for his YEARS of dedicated service through multiple administrations of both parties, but for his successfully navigating the bizarre political scene during Covid by not playing the game. He could have, and arguably should have...

    What tea did you have this morning...or afternoon?

    OK…now I’m trying Capitol’s ENGLISH Breakfast Tea. Interesting. It’s actually quite similar to the Irish Breakfast Tea in overall profile, being quite malty. Is that heavy on the second flush Assam then? It’s quite nice. Much more flavor forward than other English Breakfast Teas. Not...

    What tea did you have this morning...or afternoon?

    Tried Capitol’s blend of Irish Breakfast Tea. VERY interesting. It’s not like any other Irish tea I’ve tried…and I’ve tried most all of the teas blended and sold in Ireland & N. Ireland. It’s very, very malty. More so than any other. It’s very nice, just different. I bet it’ll be good iced!

    Wow, It's Hot!

    We have high 60’s to mid 70’s with 50% chance of rain every day predicted for the next 7 days. About a week ago it was up to 95 F and in the 60’s just a few days later. Ahhhh. Springtime in Oregon’s Willamette Valley. If you’re real quiet at night…don’t make a sound…you can hear the...

    What tea did you have this morning...or afternoon?

    Good stuff. I’m having a tall mug of the Yorkshire Gold. And I can tell the difference in my cup between their loose leaf and bagged tea. But it might be just the difference between the specific AMOUNT of tea I use that changes the flavors slightly. I know guys that have done a side by side...
