I've been a bad blogger. It's been over a month (gasp!) since my last post. I've also been a slacker with the knitting as of late. I've been so busy that I think I recently went the longest I've ever gone without knitting. I knit a bit on Easter Sunday and then I didn't knit a single stitch until late last Sunday night. That is a whole week with no knitting. Even though I do have a couple of finished socks to show y'all, they are not what I want to talk about today. Today, my favorite thing is the Batter Blaster.
The Batter Blaster is a can much like a can of Ready Whip, only it contains organic pancake batter. The Batter Blaster can be found at HEB stores near the cookie dough and the tubes of crescent rolls, though my sister-in-law tells me that in Minnesota and Florida, you find it by the Ready Whip. In any case, I urge you to find the Batter Blaster. I don't even like pancakes very much and I love the Batter Blaster. I'm just sad that I didn't discover it in time for the last New Years Eve Posse celebration. If I had, I bet I could have talked Bob out of Egg Nog French toast which was one of the more disgusting culinary experiments I've had the misfortune to witness. Instead of mixing eggs and eggnog and then dipping the bread in it and cooking it, Bob and his two partners in crime mixed eggnog and some sort of alcohol (was it Rum? I don't remember) and dipped the bread in that and then tried to cook it. The bread was both soggy and scorched at the same time. I didn't know that was possible.
Anyhow, here are two pancakes fresh out of the can. Here they are after the flip...
They look pretty good, don't they? They've been compared to McDonald's pancakes, but since I've never had a McDonald's pancake, I can neither confirm nor deny that. I can tell you that the Batter Blaster pretty much rocks because there is no mess involved (though Bob did manage to get pancake batter between the stove and the counter). When you're finished making pancakes, you just rinse the tip of the Batter Blaster under the faucet and put it back in the refridgerator. How fancy is that?
