A rainy day put me in the mood for pancakes so that’s what we had for dinner along with the usual accompaniments.
4 batches of Alton Brown’s “Instant Pancakes”
Cheddar and scallion scones
Fruit salad with watermelon, papaya, pineapple and grapes
Homemade blueberry syrup plus real maple syrup and “pancake” syrup
Snickerdoodles for dessert
10 friends gathered for dinner this week (7 adults; 3 kids).
Rather than bake a whole ham I carved the meat from a leftover Easter ham and reheated it. I added a bit of orange juice to the pan and covered it tightly with foil. The ham didn’t dry out and had a hint of orange.
Ted made the scones from a Cook’s Illustrated recipe. They came out great.
My goddaughter V and I made the cookies. She had been pestering her mother about making some. One thing led to another and Ms. V joined us for an afternoon of baking.
