Savory Pancakes with Vegetables
1/4 cup self-rising flour
1 egg
4 tablespoons milk
Pinch of salt
1 onion
Vegetables of your choice such as spinach, chopped asparagus, etc.
Sour cream or plain yogurt, optional

Chop onion and toss into a sauté pan until pieces brown and become translucent. Add vegetable(s) until cooked and soft.

In a bowl, combine self-rising flour, egg, and milk. Keep mixing until the flour dissolves and the batter becomes a thick yet a bit runny. Add salt to season.
Pour pancake batter directly over vegetables. You may want to swirl the pan so that the batter coats all the sides. Wait until you see tiny bubbles in the middle of the pancake. Then flip with either a spatula or if you’re really dandy, with your skillet flipping skills.

The second side will take less time cook. After you press down on the pancake and none of the batter runs out, remove immediately and serve as is or with sour cream, plain yogurt, etc.

A pancake is only a pancake if you use real maple syrup. I am fortunate to live in Maine with my very own maple trees that I can tap. When I worked at a children’s camp a staple was chocolate powder for the pancake mix. I had kids from all the other camp sites come over for breakfast.

I too have happy memories of my Grandpa’s pancakes. It’s hard to get a pancake to taste like his. Thanks for bringing back some wonderful memories.

If you notice a hole in the upper left-hand corner of your Farmers' Almanac, don't return it to the store! That hole isn't a defect; it's a part of history. Starting with the first edition of the Farmers' Almanac in 1818, readers used to nail holes into the corners to hang it up in their homes, barns, and outhouses (to provide both reading material and toilet paper). In 1919, the Almanac's publishers began pre-drilling holes in the corners to make it even easier for readers to keep all of that invaluable information (and paper) handy.
