  • Reader² [Editor] It’s kind of like del.ico.us or Flickr but for books.
  • iTunes Tip: The “Perfect” equalizer setting [Editor] On the off chance that this blog is your sole source of news; Apple released a new version of iTunes this week. Along with the first iTunes enabled cellphone from Cingular/Motorola and more importantly, the iPod Mini replacement…. the iPod nano. Yum!

  • The Signal [Editor] This is a podcast by fans of the cult favorite TV show, Firefly. Firefly came out back in 2002, quickly gained a devote following but the dorks in charge of FOX killed it after showing only 11 of the 14 produced episodes had been made. The Singal’s goal is to pump up support for the movie follow-up to the tv show, Serenity. I just started listening to it this week and have nearly caught up to the current shows. Probably my favorite one so far is the one where they interview Gina Torres. Although the interviews are cool my favorite segements are the “learning chinese” bits; they lend a whole new insight into various scenes in the series. All the more I have to say about that is 易爆的大象腹泻 1.

Oh and in case you’re wondering about almost total lack of posts this week… We’re going into our next beta at work (much extra crudola to deal with). Additionally, I’ve been trying (and pretty much failing) to write an online, registration form for a local sci-fi con2 that captures the data we need and accepts payments via PayPal. *sigh*

Spinach and Egg Pancakes

This is a favorite of Manzabar’s and mine. It is a recipe that goes good with a nice salsa to top off the pancakes. It roughly makes six regular pancakes altogether. This is similar to a recipe in a low carb cookbook but I added some extra goodies.

Spinach and Egg Pancakes

    Ingredients:

  • 8 oz spinach
  • 1 small leek
  • a few sprigs of parsley
  • 3 large eggs
  • 1/2 cup flour
  • oil for cooking
  • 1/2 cup parmesan cheese
  • salt, black pepper and nutmeg for taste
  • 3 tbsp water
    Directions:

  1. Chop or finely shred the parsley, leek, and spinach. Add eggs and seasonings to the chopped vegetables. Blend in the flour, cheese, and add in the water. Leave to stand for about 20 minutes.
  2. Cook pancake mix in a lightly oiled frying pan. Cook until golden brown underneath then flip and lightly cook on the other side.
  3. When removing the pancakes and drain on kitchen towel and keep warm until finished with mixture.
