since I last posted.
It seems like just yesterday when I wrote about that yummy
Chicken Salad on a croissant. But it was over eleven days ago!!!!
these Vegetable Pancakes.
They don't look like pancakes though, do they?
Because this is what they are supposed to look like, according to the cookbook.
See, those are called patties over to the left there...or pancakes...either way...they are flat disks that are solid.
My Vegetable Pancakes don't look flat.
Or solid for that matter.
Because in fact,
we had our own little pancake boy stay a few days with us....
Little Boy Blue,
Come Blow Your Horn!!!
The sheep's In the meadow (although the sheep looks oddly like a beagle),
The cow's in the corn.
But where is the Little Boy tending the sheep?
He's under the haystack...
Okay, onto the Vegetable Pancakes....
It seems as if this is a breakfast dish, but Tim paired it with a grilled chicken breast last night. I paired it with turkey sausage links.
This recipe comes from a cookbook I just picked up for a few bucks called Glycemic Index Cookbook. I don't know what glycemic means but Ima look it up soon. I just loved the simple, healthy recipes inside.
Grate up the sweet potato,
and chop up the green onions (scallions).
Throw your onions and other grated vegetables in a large bowl.
Add the egg white and then form into eight patties.
One moment please while I excuse myself...one moment...I'll just be a sec....
Just simply form this mixture into patties.
Clearly they weren't pattiefying so I threw the veggies back in the bowl.
So I tried to form patties again on the platter.
To no avail.
So then I put on my thinking cap and strategized.
put them in the heated pan
real quick this time,
trying to trick the veggies into thinking they were a patty.
Cook a few minutes over gentle heat on one side until golden and then flip them over.
Then pat them down with the back of a spatula.
So far, so good, right?
Cook for a few more minutes on that side.
Transfer patties/pancakes to a plate....
That don't look like no patty.
Look like a mess is what it look like.
Re-read instructions and get out your NON-STICK pan because that's
what it says to use. Non-stick, NOT cast iron.
So I start anew with my non-stick pan!
They don't look too bad.
We're rockin' and rollin' here!
Okay, so I wasn't successful with completing a patty look.
These were still obviously very tasty.
Lots of sweetness in these pancakes with the sweet potato and the carrot.
The zucchini and scallions were such a nice contrast to that sweetness too.
And it does plate up nicely with Canadian bacon
or what I have here...turkey sausage.
see those scallions,
the green zuchini,
the sweet potatoes and carrots....
Now Tim plated his up with a grilled chicken breast.
But I loooves me some real Maple syrup on sausages,
and these organic turkey sausages were fab!
This will probably be one of my top ten go-to dishes from now on.

all fun weekends must come to an end.
And our fun several days spent with
Little Boy Blue came to a closing when his mommy Goodness, and his daddy GreatGuy came to pick him up and take him home.
Tim and I were sad to see our yittle bitty baby leave to go back home and have fun with his momma and daddy.
That doesn't look like ice cream?
It's frozen ice cream onion ring yogurt twirled flavored ice cream.
Wink, wink :):)
See ya next time!
Have a good
