Well it must be spring here in Alaska we’ve seen lots of geese are rolling through on their way north. Other sure signs of spring are popping up too, like the tulips I planted last fall, the seagulls are back and I think I even saw some little swallows flitting around out there. We had an owl in the woods on Friday, which prompted my husband to get up and go make sure the chicken coop was shut, surely the owl wasn’t after our chickens was it? I don’t know, the coop was shut so I’m supposing it was after voles and shrews.
You know what else says it’s spring? The absolute abundance of eggs. We get a lot regularly but I think the warmer weather has really got them laying more than ever. Is that even possible? I don’t know but we’re eating a lot of eggs these days and selling as many as we can too. My customers are happy, so are the birds and of course I am too, so its all good.
If you have a lot of eggs these little zucchini pancakes are a great way to use them up, and the first zucchinis of spring too, if you’re lucky enough to have any yet. We still have three feet of snow in places, like our kids garden boxes, so our zucchini days are a bit farther away. But regardless these are a great way to use a few abundant crops together and make something quasi unusual and completely delicious. Even your egg dis-liker might be interested in them. Make them now, remember them when zucchini season has you crying “UNCLE”.
