Pancakes for Dinner

Even those who dine on meat regularly enjoy a dairy meal on occasion, and since Tuesday marks the 9th of Av on the Hebrew calendar, a holiday known as Tisha B'Av (a day of mourning over the destruction of the Holy Temple in Jerusalem), and it is customary for Jews to eat dairy on Tisha B'Av, below you will find a great dairy recipe, delicious for a religious holiday or anytime of the year and certainly enjoyable during the summer months. 
 
As to why it is customary to eat dairy on Tisha B'Av, well, I've heard several explanations over the years, all interesting and speculative.  It probably has something to do with Israel being the land of "milk and honey," but custom is custom, and no one knows for sure.
 
COTTAGE CHEESE PANCAKES
 
Pam or other cooking spray
1 cup unbleached flour
1/4 teaspoon baking soda
1 teaspoon baking powder
4 eggs
1 large cottage cheese (16 oz.)
2 tablespoons olive oil
 
Spray griddle with cooking spray and use stove burner at medium heat.  
 
Mix together flour, baking soda and baking powder. 
 
In a separate bowl beat eggs and cottage cheese until smooth (can use electric mixer).  Gradually beat in the flour mixture.  Add olive oil.
 
Use a ladle or large spoon to drop batter on to hot griddle.  Flip pancakes when you begin to see bubbles.
 
Serve with sour cream or yogurt and/or blueberries, strawberries or other fruit.
