On the grand scheme of @mix's post on crepes, thought I'd share a Brayon recipe for ployes from north of here. Tis simple, more of a transporter of tasty things; cretons, molasses, maple syrup, baked beans et al.


2 cups buckwheat flour (farine de sarrasin in French)
1 cup white flour
3 teaspoons baking powder
1 teaspoon salt
2 cups cold water
1 cup boiling water

Mix dry ingredients.
Add 2 cups cold water to the dry ingredients and mix well.
Let stand 5 minutes.
Add 1 cup boiling water and mix vigorously.
If batter looks too thick, add a little bit of cold water.
Pour batter as you would a pancake in cast iron skillet (the best) or I have used a breakfast plate to cook mine (you can make more than one at a time) and they came out very good. Let the ploye cook, you will see little holes come up everywhere, the more holes, the better your ploye is.
When you see that the mixture is not liquid anymore, your ploye is ready. Only cook on one side, a ploye is NOT to be turned to cook.
To really have good Ployes you have to mix your batter between each ploye.

Every once and a while I note the little things that make a city awesome.

Example is this "dog parking" outside of a grocery store in Lisbon, by a fire hydrant. Trés cool.

@yangwao post on the hydroelectric dam reminded me of a small hike we did years ago on the headpond of a local dam. The levels were lowered that year to allow repairs, and we were able to hike out to an island, normally accessible only via canoe.

I have passed by the rock pictured below over many years and the tree keeps hanging on, eeking out living in a harsh surface.



Anyone playing around with the barnacle idea?
