Because I am still a bachelor, I made more Food The Boy Won't Eat for dinner tonight. It was my version of a kind of giant pancake thingy from the Tassajara Bread Book crossed with something a friend had in a restaurant in Vermont when a bunch of us went camping up there in 2002.

I'm not quite sure what to call it, so I think it's being advertised as apple thingbob. *g*

Please forgive approximate measurements: I did it all with my hands.

~1/3 cup unbleached white flour
~1/3 cup whole wheat flour
~1/4th tsp salt
~1 tsp baking powder
~2 tbsp brown sugar
1 egg
1 pat butter (melted)
cinnamon & cloves to taste
enough milk to make it runny, because it is a pancake thingy, after all.

Preheat oven to ~375 or so. Pour batter into hot, buttered, oven-safe frypan and cook until it starts to bubble. lay thin slices of apple on top and sprinkle with a little more brown sugar. Stick in oven. When it starts to smell good, pull it out and sprinkle grated really sharp cheddar cheese on top. Stick back in oven until the cheese melts. pull out. Slice. Consume with gusto.

It probably makes enough for two to four, depending on how hungry they are; I've still got half of it left, I didn't have anything else with it, and I *stuffed* myself. The end product was a warm, deliciously scented, slightly bottom-scorched apple pancake thingbob about 2/3rds of an inch thick.

I think it would be even better with just a teeny bit of maple syrup on top, and it would be good for breakfast, too.

To make two bold statements: There's nothing sentimental about a machine, and: A poem is a small (or large) machine made out of words. When I say there's nothing sentimental about a poem, I mean that there can be no part that is redundant.
