The inevitable egguito! (With a sidekick of slather)
Sunday brunch I served up a bunch of these rolled around a variety of stuffings. I hadn't done these in over a year and I was jonesing to. Their inception was waking from a dream that I was making apple banana omelets. So at 5:00 that morning I got up and made my first batch of slather which got rolled into egguitos.

Slather is apples and bananas (and any other fruit you want) caramelized down in a sautee pan with butter of course. Once nice and brown and gooey, add some yogurt or coconut milk (I prefer yogurt) and some cooked grain like oats or brown rice or sticky white rice. Spice to taste with things like cinnamon, nutmeg and clove. Set aside and wait to be blazzeled!

This stuff will make you wonder why you've never seen fruit omelets before anywhere.

The egguitos are just eggs, milk or a substitute whisked with a fork of course, you weren't thinking of using a whisk were you? (Don't get me started)

Put egg mix into greased hot skillet pancake batter thin and treat like a flapjack. Then after the flip, add your stuffing and roll up after warm.

A little more milk than you would assume and it gives the eggcake
a nice shiny slick popping outer skin and a nice fluffy inside.

This day I added fresh cilantro to the "batter" and cooked on the flat griddles. I tested a first one on our regular cast iron skillet but couldn't get the spatulas under them without ripping. The griddles were a challenge to melt lard on then pour the egg mix on without making a mess. But I persevered. Also after pouring it is important to cover the egg so the top will cook a little by steaming. I had to lay an overly large glass lid on top of these to kind of work.



The options this morning were a curried spaghetti squash, super veggie root sautee and the slather. The slather was made with fresh apples, bananas and peaches from the freezer. The root sautee seemed to be the big winner.

There, Richard was also.

The 3rd variation and failure at popping a bad boy buggy axle apart.

But doesn't it look like a cool hover craft.

Here's what finally worked.
A bottle jack from my '86 Toyota 1-ton some clamps and lots of steel.
Most importantly was the not give upedness and the collaboration between two people.
Huge thanks to Mike. I would not have gone this far. Odd how that simplest of tools the lever still just keeps working.

Sofia after a hard day's work.
We've all had our go and "the slouch"seems the only proper way to use this comfy device.

3 toms returning after Tom had left empty handed.

This is the way we grind the deer, grind the deer, grind the deer...

The battle continues with what to do with that deer?

If you don't look closely at the picture above, it seems like Jason is comfortable and happy turning his arm into sausage.
