Scallion pancakes

Captain's Log, Supplemental

My husband and I joined a local organic produce co-op, also called a CSA (community-supported agriculture program) that delivers a huge basket of fresh organic veggies every week. We’re loving it—the produce is so much better and cheaper than the supermarket.

We don’t get to choose what vegetables we get, and I ended up with six leeks. I made clam chowder one night, but couldn’t figure out what to do with the other leeks (we weren’t partial to leek and potato soup, although I did half-heartedly suggest it).

Then I hit on the idea to make Chinese scallion pancakes, but using the leeks instead of green onions. I’d never made scallion pancakes before, but my husband and I love them when we get them from Chinese restaurants.

I found this recipe and decided to try it.

They turned out REALLY GOOD! I made them thin and used a little less oil than the Chinese restaurants use (they pour it on), and while they weren’t quite as good, they were close. Captain Caffeine and I just kept snarfing them up as soon as they came out of the pan. It was a filling but not very balanced dinner that night.

  1. Those look delicious! I'm going to have to click over and get the recipe.

    Snickers looks so cute and pitiful waiting for crumbs. lRayley does the exact same thing though. I think he can actually hear them falling through the air because he's always there by the time they hit the floor. lol.

  2. Aww, Snickers reminds me of my Lizzie (who is always scrounging for crumbs, too!)

    These do look yummy. Since they're pancakes, do you put onion syrup on them? Garlic syrup? (I'm just kidding, you know...)

    Thanks for the photos and the link to the recipe!

    By the way I am loving reading Sushi for One? with the Zondervan Breakfast Club! Awesome. Can't wait to get your book!

No Cold Bums toilet seat cover

Captain's Log, Stardate 08.22.2008 I actually wrote out my pattern! I was getting a lot of hits on my infamous toilet seat cover , and I wanted to make a new one with “improvements,” so I paid attention and wrote things down as I made the new one. This was originally based off the Potty Mouth toilet cover , but I altered it to fit over the seat instead of the lid. Yarn: any worsted weight yarn, about 120 yards (this is a really tight number, I used exactly 118 yards. My suggestion is to make sure you have about 130 yards.) I suggest using acrylic yarn because you’re going to be washing this often. Needle: I used US 8, but you can use whatever needle size is recommended by the yarn you’re using. Gauge: Not that important. Mine was 4 sts/1 inch in garter stitch. 6 buttons (I used some leftover shell buttons I had in my stash) tapestry needle Crochet hook (optional) Cover: Using a provisional cast on, cast on 12 stitches. Work in garter st until liner measures
