Here's how to make your own tie blanket:
- Get a piece of fleece fabric about 8 inches bigger around than you want your blanket.
- Cut out the corners in 4"X4" squares.
- Cut 1" thick and 4" long slits along the four sides of the blanket.
- Tie each slit in a thick knot.
- You're done!
Ploye is a Canadian pancake that is only cooked on one side. Unlike most pancakes, they lack eggs or milk. Traditionally they are made with both wheat and buckwheat flour. They are eaten all day like bread.
1 cup buckwheat flour
½ cup wheat flour
2 tsp baking powder
½ tsp salt
1 cup cold water
½ cup boiling water
Mix the dry ingredients together. Add in the cold water and let the mixture sit for 5 minutes. Now whisk in the boiling water. Preheat a large nonstick pancake pan to medium heat. Scoop a few tablespoons of the batter onto the pan and spread it out. Cook until a bunch of holes form on the top and the top dries. Do not flip, but remove the ploye from the pan and serve.
