Logic should indicate if the cherries on my tree are not yet ripe, neither are yours. But then, whoever says I think logically before allowing my fingers to type. Gotta love Mom's who come bearing fruits for jelly making no matter what.
Sorry I totally flaked out on this! I guess that I have my mind on other things!
Recipe entries were done by midnight GMT Sunday night. There are 5 recipes entered. You have until the 8th to prepare and judge the 5 entries. I will reopen the recipe thread on the 7th and 8th for your votes.
Steve's post made me wonder how all of you pancake chefs handle feeding a crowd.
When I make pancakes it is normally for one or two people at a time as they wake up and stagger into the kitchen.
I just stand at the stove for an hour or so and flip until they stop begging and whining.
I have always been afraid to make them ahead for fear they would get cold or sweat and become soggy.
How do you handle it?
My wife and I usually host a couple of large parties every year. The most we've entertained for was at our daughter's graduation. That was just over a hundred people. I probably wouldn't do that again, as it was constant running and I didn't get much opportunity to talk to folks. Most of our big parties are no more than 25-30 guests. I find that it's always better to serve things you can cook in advance and reheat.Steve's post made me wonder how all of you pancake chefs handle feeding a crowd.
How do you handle it?
I have an hour and a half until a dozen hungry neighbors show up for breakfast, so I am flappin' and flippin' right now. Photos will be posted a little later.
By the way, I think it might be good to send our votes via PM to the mods, so they can post the results on 7/8 or whenever. Early posting of results might skew the vote otherwise.
Just my couple cents.
Oh, that didn't work at all. Here's how it's supposed to be laid out:
Top of column B = Pancake 1. I then place Pancake 2 in column D, then Pancake 3 in column F, and so on.
The rows are labeled with the following categories from top to bottom - Taste, Texture, Aroma, Visual Appeal, and Versatility.
There are ten points possible for each category, with the sums auto calculated at the bottom of each column. I'll email the spreadsheet in on Saturday, to PF, unless someone can tell me how to attach the file to a post.
Good luck to everyone. And i won't add fresh, wild blueberries to my own recipe, as we have the best blueberries on the continent, and that just wouldn't be fair to the rest of you. And if it isn't fair, then it's just not worth doing.
