Happy Ground Day! And for Catholics, happy Feast of the Presentation Day. (Formerly know as Candlemas, but at some point blessing all those candles lost its status and no longer warranted a whole day. Plus, a Feast Day is just better.) In honor of Candlemas, here's the anecdotal recipe for Grandpa Emile's Pancakes, or EPs, as my cousins would say. They are really crepes and best done in a blender.
Beat 6 eggs and add 1 cup milk and 1 cup flour. Beat until smooth. Makes enough for 4 people. (or 6people if they are light eaters.) For every additional person who comes through the door, throw in another eggs. When you've used up a dozen eggs, it's time to start a new batch.
Rub your hot pan all over with a cube of butter, and pour in enough batter to cover the bottom of the pan while turning and tipping and coaxing the batter to the edges. Flip if you like, but it's so thin, it cooks right through. Just remember to roll or fold the less browned side to the inside. It's just prettier like that. Jam, syrup, or sprinkle with powdered sugar and squeeze a fresh lemon over it.
