The best thing I can say about today’s pancake competition is that it’s over.
Oh, OK. It wasn’t that bad. As usual, I was humiliated (can’t flip pancakes, toss ‘em or decorate ‘em), but at least my husband, former Eagle food writer Joe Stumpe, won the tossing contest, so I got a prize, too.
Emcee Jon Callen of Edmiston Oil was pretty entertaining, too. He talked about how the Wichita Downtown Lions have been putting on the annual Pancake and Sausage Day for so long (the 51st one is April 16th and benefits Youthville) they can do it in their sleep.
“If you get a bad pancake,” he said, “that could be the reason.”
