Scallion and Red Onion Pancakes with Ginger Dipping Sauce

IMG_7242

Or you can use chives…just scallions, just red onions, shallots, or whatever combination you want.

The recipe isn't mine – I found it on the Food Network website – from an episode of East Meets West with Ming Tsai.  If you want a copy of the recipe, here it is.  I pretty much followed it exactly except that I used a combination of the baby scallions and the young red onions. 

The first time I made these I used wild chives that were growing in among the horseradish and the asparagus.  I didn't take pictures, though.  And they were so good, I knew I'd need to make them again and this time TAKE PICTURES.

More Thrilling Bedrooms Project Pictures!!!

  Last Friday I was probably sanding down dried joint compound and then applying another layer of the stuff to the various seams in the sheetrock when Julia wandered up to join me.  She stepped into the space above and asked what it was and I told her it would eventually be her closet. Innumerable shopping spreesContinue reading “More Thrilling Bedrooms Project Pictures!!!”

A Song To Sing While Working on the Bedrooms

I'm sure you can figure out the melody on your own.  I am not a musician and I can't write music.  I've just got an English degree, and so I CAN write some mean lyrics when I've a mind to. Ready? The……blade all full of joint compound goes slap slap slap/slap slap slap/slap slap slap/theContinue reading “A Song To Sing While Working on the Bedrooms”
