corn fritters aka I forgot that I really dislike frying things

We have been a bit backlogged on eating our farm share, we went out of town for a weekend and really got behind, leaving our household of two with eight ears of corn. To dispense with four of those ears I tried my hand at some corn fritters. They turned out pretty tasty plated up with some wilted tat soi and some ginger garlic chutney for the Hubbs. And I was quickly reminded how much I dislike frying. eating fried sure, making it no.

Savory Ricotta Kale Pancakes

Holy yummy breakfast. I found some super fancy ricotta on sale at the coop and bought it with no real plan for it. I have been intrigued by the concept of ricotta pancakes, mostly cause it packs a bit more protein than regular pancakes. In my world pancakes are kind of a waste, they just make me more hungry.

I based the pancakes on a recipe that I found here, I omitted the sugar and added a touch more than a pinch of salt. Once that was all together I added one bunch of kale that I had wilted with a chopped onion and a bit of garlic. They turned our fluffy and wonderful.

One finished and one half-way there.
