It's that time again! The 5th Annual CafeAnonsBall!

Yes, friends - if it's Shrove Tuesday then it's time again for all of us to celebrate our "CafeAnons" - all of you who drop by, drop in, and drop out of the cafe all year long and we never learn your name.  This is our fifth year celebrating all ya'all who hang out and sometimes wipe out while spooning up the pudding and dodging flying pies.

Here are links to the CafeAnonsBalls from the last four years:
So pull up a chair and find your favorite table and let's celebrate that you are welcome - those we know and those we don't know - or don't know that we do know!  You know - and of course, so does Someone Else.

To start off the celebration, we'll begin with the classic by U2 - for sometimes it's not just the people but also the streets that have no name.

And since it's the last day before Lent, it's time to get all our Hallelujahs in before sundown! To help the cause - well, must be seen!


6 egg yolks
1/3 c. buttermilk pancake mix
1/3 c. dairy sour cream
1/2 tsp. salt
6 egg whites

Beat egg yolks until thick and lemon colored. Fold in pancake mix, sour cream and salt until well blended. Beat egg whites until stiff but not dry. Carefully fold into yolk mixture. Drop by tablespoonfuls or more onto hot, well greased griddle until golden brown both sides. Makes 6 servings.

And to close out the evening:

It seems that there are fewer and fewer attendees each year. At least there are fewer comments. Perhaps we are all just getting comfortable with each other and sitting back with the butter beer and watching the show rather than actively participating.

Thanks for putting on a great party/ball for us every year! We really appreciate it.

Oops, I guess I should post this as an Anon!

Pray forgive my ignorance, but the picture of the pancake souffle does not match the instructions. The picture implies they were baked in ramekins; the instructions ring in a hot griddle. If you bake you get a puffy souffle, right? If you griddle, you get what - a fluffy pancake? Will you make it plainer for those of us less intelligent?

I supposed you stuff it into a round cup and top it with a tuff of butter? :)

What intrigues me in the pic, though, is the - what is that? A spoon that got stuck in the dishwasher?

I think it is a Gellerspoon - designed to help get the last bit of souffle out of awkward places.
