Do you have Ukrainian breakfast faforite? Share! 🙂
Here is our Ukrainian 🇺🇦 breakfast favorite - Kabachkovi Oladky, zucchini pancakes! Smachnoho, yum! 😋

👨‍🍳👩‍🍳 INGREDIENTS
FOR THE PANCAKES
3 medium zucchini, shredded
Salt, freshly ground black pepper
3 large eggs, beaten
½ cup all-purpose flour
1 tablespoon extra virgin olive oil
1 cup crumbled feta cheese
3 scallions, finely chopped
⅓ cup finely chopped dill
1 teaspoon baking powder
4 to 6 tablespoons vegetable oil, more as needed
FOR THE YOGURT SAUCE
⅔ cup plain yogurt
2 cloves garlic, finely chopped
½ teaspoon salt

👩‍🍳👨‍🍳 PREPARATION
FOR THE PANCAKES
➡️ Place zucchini in a colander over a bowl, and mix with 1/2 teaspoon salt. Allow to drain for five minutes. Transfer to a cloth kitchen towel, and squeeze hard to extract as much moisture as possible. Squeeze a second time; volume will shrink to about half the original.

➡️ In a large mixing bowl, combine zucchini and eggs. Using a fork, mix well. Add flour, 1/2 teaspoon salt, olive oil, feta, scallions, dill and 1/2 teaspoon black pepper. Mix well, add baking powder, and mix again.

➡️ Place a cast iron skillet or other heavy skillet over medium heat. Add 2 tablespoons vegetable oil and heat until shimmering. Place heaping tablespoons of zucchini batter in pan several inches apart, allowing room to spread. Flatten them with a spatula if necessary; pancakes should be about 3/8 inch thick and about 3 inches in diameter. Fry until golden on one side, then turn and fry again until golden on other side. Repeat once or twice, frying about 5 to 6 minutes total, so pancakes get quite crisp. Transfer to a plate lined with paper towels, and keep warm in oven. Continue frying remaining batter, adding more oil to pan as needed. Serve hot.

➡️ For yogurt sauce: In a small bowl, combine yogurt, garlic and salt. Mix well, and serve on the side or on pancakes.

Interested in dinosaurs? Then visit Badlands Dinosaur Museum at the Dickinson Museum Center in North Dakota. Badlands focuses primarily on exhibits of fossils, fieldwork and research programs, and public laboratory preparations for new specimen additions to its collection.
Though they are adding more exhibits in the future, you can currently view a variety of Tyrannosaurus, Triceratops, Edmontosaurus, and more ice-age mammals! They also accept volunteers for their fieldwork crew in the Summer, so you can be involved if you're interested in digging for dinosaurs! www.thetravel.com/worlds-best-dinosaur-museums-essential-bucket-list-visit/?fbclid=IwAR2yHFrTjR6l...

🇪🇺 🇺🇦 #EUUkraine Thank you Donald Tusk for your continued strong support of Ukraine during a time of political transitions in both Ukraine and the EU!
During his recent visit to #Ukraine for the 21st EU-Ukraine Summit 🇪🇺🇺🇦, the President of the European Council Donald Tusk said: "...Your courage and determination have won the respect and recognition of many Europeans, and today there are more and more allies to the Ukrainian cause among them.
In my eyes, you are all heroes... The European Union should be proud and grateful to have such a partner..." europa.eu/!gm76wU
During his visit, Donald Tusk visited Eastern Ukraine and the crossing bridge of Stanitsa Luhanska. He noted that the tragedy there continues, with disastrous humanitarian consequences for local Ukrainians trapped by Russia’s war.
"...Only a few days ago, the EU unanimously extended the economic sanctions against Russia for another six months. The sanctions will remain in place until the Minsk agreements are fully implemented..." europa.eu/!xw46nQ
