Wandering Wanda has returned (however briefly) to the Homeland.
And as usual your Cruise Director has some photo documentation of the exciting events that Mr. Bo outlined in detail earlier.

There was of course the field trip to Cold Spring Tavern.
(l to r: Debbie, Ron (str8strm), Cat, John (TIMEMACHINE), Glen (beekeeper) and Nancy (latke chef), Bam, and Kevbo (in hats). Apparently our new friend Greg was with his other friends at the time. He was very busy dividing his time and chili between the CA Streamers and The Vintage Group.

I did see the rowers on an early morning walk but they were too far away to hear any comments yelled from shore.
Recognize anyone???

But we all ran to the safety of our Airstreams and locked our doors.

Ron was seen exercising and trying to build up stamina for the challenging contest that Debbie had arranged for us later in the day.

All in all it was a great Spon Rally at Lake Cachuma.

And that's how I spent my summer vacation.

Love, Bam

There Goes the Neighborhood

About 30 minutes after the Streamers starting pulling out, the Body Snatchers (SOBs) descended upon us. Has anyone heard from Greg? He's there alone. R

Acorn Pancakes

QUESTION: Do you know of any recipes using acorns?

Here is some information about eating acorns or rather acorn meal. The tannins have to be removed to avoid the bitterness.

ACORN PANCAKES

Break an egg into a bowl. Add:
1 teaspoon salad oil
1 teaspoon of honey or sugar
1/2 cup of ground and leached acorns
1/2 cup of corn meal
1/2 cup of whole wheat or white flour
2 teaspoons of double action baking powder
1/2 teaspoon of salt
1/2 cup of milk

Beak all together. If the batter is too thick to pour, thin it with milk. Pour pancakes into a hot, greased griddle and cook slowly until brown on both sides.

Serve with butter and syrup or wild blackberry jam. Delicious!!

PREPARATION OF GROUND ACORN MEAL
  1. Pick up several cupfuls of acorns. All kinds of oaks have edible acorns. Some have more tannin than others, but leaching will remove the tannin from all of them.
  2. Shell the acorns with a nutcracker, a hammer, or a rock.
  3. Grind them. If you are in the woods, smash them, a few at a time on a hard boulder with a smaller stone, Indian style. Do this until all the acorns are ground into a crumbly paste. If you are at home, it's faster and easier to use your mom's blender. Put the shelled acorns in the blender, fill it up with water, and grind at high speed for a minute or two. You will get a thick, cream-colored goo. It looks yummy, but tastes terrible.
  4. Leach (wash) them. Line a big sieve with a dish towel and pour in the ground acorns. Hold the sieve under a faucet and slowly pour water through, stirring with one hand, for about five minutes. A lot of creamy stuff will come out. This is the tannin. When the water runs clear, stop and taste a little. When the meal is not bitter, you have washed it enough. Or, in camp, tie the meal up in a towel and swish it in several bucketfuls of clean drinking water, until it passes the taste test.
  5. Squeeze out as much water as you can, with your hands.
  6. Use the ground acorn mash right away, because it turns dark when it is left around. Or store in plastic for freezing if you want to make the pancakes later.

Mr. bo,
That seems to be a rather complicated procedure, can we just "acquire" such acorn meal from you?

Not sure...we were able to get some logistic out of the way during our meeting...but someone brought out the Ta-kill-ya tasting...the rest is kind of a blurrrrrrr.....

My guess is March, since there seems to be a down time from any rally activities...

Anybody wants to chime in? bo? wanda? soon to be b-day boy?

anyone there....
