More cookery for y’all

Here is me and Red trying to make pancakes:

And here, in case you missed it, is Shea and Andy's original video of the same recipe:

Wow...good job. But I am a little confused by your bacon. I thought bacon was universal. I wonder what your bacon is called over here? Canadian Bacon? How did your blueberries work out? Part of the deliciousness is that the blueberries burst open releasing their tasty goo.

Even though I'm Canadian, I'm not very fond of the Back Bacon or as we call it Canadian Bacon. Reminds me too much of ham. Which is funny because I like pork chops. Whatever.

Great jobs you guys! *Asterisk is an egg master. You can cook me a couple of sunny side up's any time! Not one yolk broken. I'm impressed. The pancakes however ... how DID the dried berries work out? I would think they'd still be a bit chewy. Next time, I recommend trying banana pancakes. Mmmmm. Delicious.

I realize this was a recreation of Shea's Mom's secret recipe but it started to look like a full English by the time you were done. I almost asked where the chips and beans were.

And I love the reference to Usual Suspects. Nicely done. Can't wait for the next recipe. Oh! Wait. Does this mean it's my turn to make something? Hmmm, I'll have to find a dish to make...

Anonymous shea said... thats was great. Man your pan cakes were so round. FLIP IT BABY YEAH!!! ... and where were the beans? ha

you guys did a great job. I ate mine with honey instead of syrup. Well sometimes i mix the two but i feel i have more control with the honey.

Avid Andy: Universal bacon? That sort of thinking could get you locked up under the Prevention of Terrorism Act these days, surely to Christ?! What kind of crazy, mixed-up world do you think we live in? Re the blueberries: I actually don't like thing that spurt in my mouth, which is why I avoid foods that contain currants, raisins, sultanas...

f/Ball: Well, I guess it seems not. Make love, not bacon. Would that be a great vegetarian campaign tagline?

MSP: Not this time around, but it could maybe be arranged.

Karen: I do like a nice piece of bacon. Yeah, I'm pretty good at doing unbroken over-easies, and I tend to make those more often than sunny-side-ups. The berries were okay, if a touch durable... Yesterday we tried it without bacon and with Red's trademarked sauteed potatoes instead. Very nice. Good catch on The Usual Suspects, you genius!

Shea: I rarely eat baked beans, to be honest, unless they come with a breakfast in a cafe (and even that's becoming less commonplace). Y'know, I think we did an okay job of it.

Mmmm...pancakes! My favorite breakfast meal. You are really an expert in cooking that food.

The video allowed me to learn a lot about pancake cooking. Plus, it's totally entertaining and interesting. I've watched each the videos thrice...just so you know.

Good job!
