I've been following BSD more than ever lately, and, in between "the scandal" and the "BOT" posts there are a few of us (in reality, I think more than a few) who can and are trying to find a way to get excited about our new football coach and a new era... or simply stated: looking forward to a fresh start.
I don't follow professional football, but when I heard our new coach was coming from the New England Patriots, I wanted a foodie post that would be classic New England... something to ease us into "the new guy". Clam Chowder was too easy. I decided on Johnny Cakes, for two reasons:
1) Several years ago while vacationing in New England, I fell in love with these things, ate them every morning for breakfast for a week and I think I gained 10 pounds!
2) Since they are easy to make, and contain no rising agents, you can whomp up a batch tonight and fry 'em up in some bacon fat first thing in the morning (which makes them perfect to take to future tailgates)!
Besides that, these will take your mind off your problems!
You can find the recipe for these amazing corn cakes at Jessedotsmom's foodie blog.
Let's hope BOB is as good as my Johnny Cakes!!!
For the Glory,
