On the topic of “old habits” One of my favorite foods is the “Cheese Blintz”. (For those of you who don’t know what they are…they are a crepe, wrapped around a cheese filling…and fried in butter…usually served with sour cream). When I was a kid and my mom made them, as each crepe came out of the pan they were placed on a tea towel. There were towels all over the kitchen and the crepes were laying every where. The first time I made them in my tiny kitchen…I would certainly not have room for that mess…I just stacked them on a plate with a paper towel between them. No problem. No sticking…nothing. Perfect. I asked my Mom"why did you do it that way? Her response “because your grandmother did it that way”. I’ve asked a few people who make them and everyone lays them out…all over the place…but no one could tell me why. LOL
Oh my goodness, as a lover and frequent maker of Swedish pancakes I must declare Bill, this made me laugh so hard! How absolutely adorable! I could so picture that! What a sight that must have been.
