Oh… I’m hurt! Yesterday morning some wise guy hinted I should take better care of myself! How rude! So, instead of chasing the kids, I loaded them into our duallie BOB and spent an hour chasing my dreams… of getting back in shape.
Thanks a lot, Miro, your poem was truly inspiring and I feel good about myself even though I cannot move my limbs!
For tolerating mommy’s slow jogging, the kids were rewarded with farmers cheese pancakes. There are tons of variations of this recipe, and my favorite one is actually soft and savory, with semolina. But the kids prefer this sweet stuff. Who would have expected THAT!? If you haven’t seen farmers cheese in your usual supermarket, you can always find in European grocery stores (or you can make it yourself).
FARMERS CHEESE PANCAKES
- 425 g farmers cheese
- 3 eggs
- 50 g flour
- 1 tsp vanilla extract
- 1 tsp baking soda
- ¼ tsp salt
- 2 tbs sugar
Yields about 20 small pancakes
Combine all ingredients and mix together with a fork. Once everything is incorporated, make pancakes with your hands. Shape pieces of dough into golf-ball sized balls, and then flatten with your palms.
Preheat the frying pan and grease it with oil.
Bake the pancakes till golden brown on each side on mid-low heat, covered.
Traditionally served with sour cream, honey, or jam.
