Is there anything better than pancakes topped with granola? I should think not. Last weekend we were doing a ton of eating out so instead of my usual Friday night culinary masterpiece, I opted to make a nice breakfast for Saturday instead (read: non-cereal). I found a nice and easy pancake recipe from my Tupelo Homey Cafe cookbook (should you ever find yourself in the the Asheville, North Carolina area I definitely recommend dining there). One of the things I like most about pancakes is that there are innumerable ways to make them (they're like eggplant in that regard, another food I absolutely love).
When I visited the DMZ in Korea, I posed for a couple of pictures but I felt wrong. I felt wrong to be posing for pictures at the place that is the most heavily fortified border in the world. The place where two sides are still technically at war. The place that more than 60 years later, keeps two countries but one people apart. In neither picture am I smiling. The one taken outside that shows North Korea in the background, I look slightly relaxed. But the photo taken with a South Korean solider who almost looks fake for how rigid he has to be while on duty, I have a serious face.
