I know - really gross. This is my first attempt at pancakes in a cast iron pan. Okay...it's a little reenactment. I immediately tossed the mess and pulled out my good ole teflon, but quickly after doing so, I thought, "damn, I should have documented this experience." So I pulled the evidence from the garbage and staged it...scary that it looks quite close to the original disaster.
So now a new goal for Feb. By March 1st, I want to be able to make perfect pancakes in a cast iron pan.
Last night Alex made this amazing and very complicated dinner. You know, the type that basically uses all available kitchen tools, bowls, and pans. It was wonderful, but afterwards the reality settled in - DISHES! SO MANY DISHES! So we ran the full load that was already in the dishwasher, then loaded the dishwasher up with last night's dishes this morning...which are running now while all the dishes from this morning's pancake mess wait their turn...don't get me wrong...I actually don't mind doing dishes...on occasion...as a novelty....but I wonder throughout this project if I will find myself choosing food based on the amount of mess the preparation will make.
Three days left!
