….Pancakes are one of the favorite dishes of the whole family. When the savory smell of oil spreads, my husband often comes to the kitchen first. He says that they are delicious to eat as soon as they are taken out of the pan, so he sits next to me and eats them. It is always heartwarming to see him enjoy them while talking about the old days. I am grateful that cooking ends before I know it while reminiscing about my cooking time, which can sometimes be boring. The savory pancakes are a dish that is hard to resist, even when the oil splashes around. It took quite a lot to take out all the leftover ingredients in the refrigerator. Little bits of leftover ingredients here and there are the best for making pancakes. We’ll use a couple of different kinds of vegetables, and you can add your own as well. These pancakes remind me of my mother. When I was young, she often made them like mixed pancakes. They were so tasty! While she was cooking the pancakes, we all eagerly watched what she was doing. Once she brought them to the table, we ate them very quickly! It was our childhood spent with our older sister and brother. It’s definitely a fond memory for me. The nasturtium brought from @hyunmi_leey’s house was beautifully spread out, so I used it as a garnish.
