rolie polies move on one more generation

Zach can make rolie polies, just like his mom, just like his grandma. These are crepes, or Norwegian pancakes, or whatever you want to call them, and they're not easy, even when you've made them a lot.

Zach had to make the recipe at home as part of a class at school, document it with pictures, and report back via email to the teacher. I showed him how on the first one and he finished the rest of the batter--no burning (of him or the crepes), throw-aways, or any hesitation at all. He got the technique, the swirl of the batter in the pan, and figured out how to avoid cooking a crepe with holes (a problem with your swirl technique). And he even shared his stash with the other kids for breakfast.

I am impressed!

I am so impressed that you blogged!!

Zach is awesome. He has some sweet skills in the kitchen. Next time he comes over do you think he'd cook for the Williams???

I'm convinced they're so good because Zach reads the recipe out loud with the deep resonating voice of a professional book reader. (:
