these taste much better than the photo makes them look; they're not burnt. rachel was hungry for a midnight snack and we have an abundant supply of mashed potato flakes in the cupboard, so i made her latke -- aka potato pancakes (or a cheap imitation thereof), adapting a recipe from a instant mashed potato flake manufacturer website:

.75 cup flour
1.25 cups instant mashed potato flakes
2 teaspoons baking powder
1 teaspoon salt
2.5 cups (soy) milk
2 eggs
.25 cup shredded carrot
.25 sweet yellow onion, chopped
2 Tablespoons oil

mix dry ingredients, add wet ingredients
heat frying pan
fry about 2 minutes per side, until egg is safely cooked

serve with applesauce

makes about eight big pancakes

this is one of chips' staple recipes, during the four years that anna lived in another city, chips cooked this for dinner about once per week. except he made them from a box-mix, probably this one.

nanna anna: I never thought you'd ever get nostalgic for your dad's cooking!
sean dreilinger: actually, i consider this cooking therapy a form of recovery honey, those look like cow pies… BUT THEY TASTED SOOOOOOOOOOOO GOOD!
