“Puns are vulgar”


So says a book I own, titled Twentieth Century Etiquette. A New York Times Op-Ed writer wrote a short history of puns. A friend of his thinks that it is okay to make puns while on dates, so long as you do not discriminate on prunes and figs.

Two weekends ago Amelia and I made breakfast together. We were initially planning to make breakfast pizza and eggs on asparagus, but Whole Foods had no whole wheat pizza dough. We didn’t want to give up breakfast pizza, but we didn’t want to buy standard dough either. We decided to make breakfast pizza pancakes without the pizza aspect.

Breakfast Pizza Pancakes Minus Pizza

4 tablespoons cinnamon-sugar
2 cups mascarpone cheese
1 tablespoon heavy cream
1 lemon
2 cups mixed berries
2 stacks o’ pancakes

Zest and juice the lemon. Mix together the cheese, cream, lemon juice, and zest. Smother pancakes (of your own recipe) with the delicious mixture. Top with berries and cinnamon-sugar. Serve with Roasted Asparagus with Scrambled Eggs (we tripled this recipe and left out the bread) and mimosas. Skip the mimosas if your friends are recovering from a hangover.

Pancakes, asparagus and eggs served nine. We had a few leftover spears of asparagus and half a stack of pancakes remaining.
