in thread The breakfast of champions is...

That's pretty much it. Spherical pancakes. Put whatever you like on'em or in'em. Though I think there was a sort of creamy lingonberry sauce at the windmill cafe restaurant place that I had them at. It's funny that we've had a couple of ębleskiver pans for a while now, and just recently they started hawking them on those "call now and get'em for $19.95 (+ postage and handling!)" commercials under the name "Pancake Puffs." (prolly cuz 'merkins can't pronounce ębleskiver) And in case you need a perl-approved recipe: Viking Balls.

    Well, in my limited experience, Vikings know breakfast.

    My MFA advisor back at (one of my) grad schools had a ridiculously beautiful Icelandic wife who made trad Icelandic breakfast-y things for a bunch of us, once. This included some kind of pancake roll-up deal that had crystal sugar inside. I still remember those, 25 years later.

[Eily]: that's not what I'd call a silent h :)
[LanX]: see soundfile https://en. wiktionary.org/ wiki/human# Pronunciation
[Your Mother]: Just Another Perl 'Acker.
[LanX]: I pronounce it 'juːmən'
[Your Mother]: Hey, let's not bring antisemitism into the conversation.
[LanX]: for centuries posh English speakers tried to approach French, that's where all the trouble starts
[Eily]: Just another Perl ą coeurs
[Eily]: (perl with hearts, 'Acker with a French accent is pronunced like ą coeurs)
[LanX]: IMHO 'ju' for 'u' happens in English where they can't pronounce the French u (or German ü)
[LanX]: and I'm sure I read that *hotel* used to be pronounced 'otel by the English upperclass
