C is for Canned Pancake Batter

Oh yes I did.

I was watching Unwrapped on the Food Network, an episode loosely themed around "unusual containers". The push up sushi triggered a light gag reflex, but Batter Blaster (organic!) excited me a whole lot. (Beware the theme song if you follow the link.)

It took me a few tries to locate Batter Blaster at my local supergrocery, mostly because I couldn't for the life of me figure out where in the store it was likely to be (cheesy dairy case, as it happened). Once found, however, it was everything I hoped it would be: Fast, easy to use and the pancakes taste normal, ie delicious. They were slightly less fluffy than scratch pancakes, but not by a lot.

The can informs me that I can also use this wonderful product for waffles (heart!). I'll try that next weekend and report back.

D is for Duck

Duck achieved!

It turned out all I needed to do was ask someone in the meat department. Fancy that. They led me across the store to the freezer case and, et voila, I now have a duck.

Of course, I have no idea what I'm going to do with said duck yet, but, well, it's frozen solid, so I figure i have a couple days to make a plan.
