I talked to my son Sakae in Portland last night. He was telling me how suddenly it's gotten cold and wintery up there. He said he likes the plaid wool shirt I sent him for his birthday.
I woke up this morning to the sound of rain tapping hard on the skylights. It feels like winter in Santa Monica, too.
It's a perfect day for pancakes. There is still some Anson Mills buckwheat flour that Glenn Roberts sent me to try. Buckwheat flour is made from uncooked groats. Anson Mills makes a very dark and earthy buckwheat flour. The darkness comes from the black hull in the flour. The hull is rich in Lysine, an important amino acid. I like the flavor of dark buckwheat flour but when using four that contains the hull, you have to be sure that the buckwheat is not sprayed with chemicals.
