Get a can of corn, drained (or kernels from two cobs). Then get half a tomato, 2 spring onions and a handful of fresh herbs like parsley/basil etc and chop up finely. Grate 80-100g of your favourite cheese and mix all of it into the batter with lots of salt and pepper. Heat a pan on medium heat, add 2 tsps olive oil then pour in half a cup of batter. Cook until bubbles come through the top then flip and cook 2-3 minutes more. Repeat until all cooked. Can stack on a plate or serve as ready. Have onion jam and a good mayonnaise on the table as condiments. Tip- a poached egg on top and some bacon on the side is delectable. To have it ready with the pancakes start cooking the bacon when batter half gone, and have a pot of simmering water with splash of vinegar ready, to pop the eggs in when starting to cook last pancake. Brunch pancakes with VJ Belyuen Housing Project Alice Jorrock of Belyuen has four generations of family living in her house. When asked if she wanted to be a part of a housing project she welcomed the idea. As a result, a new outdoor living structure has been built as part of an initiative between the Belyuen Council and University of Melbourne. Men from the Jorrock family worked with architecture masters students to design and build a structure for outside living. The project is lead by Dr David OBrien who said 11 students who are particularly interested in indigenous housing were included in the Belyeun project with logistical help from Yil li Rreung Housing. OBrien said it is part of a larger initative called HomePLUS which aims to improve the sustainability of housing by working with and empowering indigenous people to develop homes that focus on their specific needs. T h e s t r u c t u re built at Alice Jorrockss place is a steel frame with a high roof ,wide bench seats and kitchen bench space. We can cook outside and eat outside said Alice. The building took eight days to complete and members of the Jorrock family were involved i n b u i l d i n g t h e dwelling. My son Hen ry and Patrick and also my grandson helped to build it said Alice. Jacinta Jorrock, a granddaughter of Alice said that she helped to choose the colours and paint to structure. OBrien explained the skills exchange aspect of the initiative was important. He said the aim is that recipients felt they had input into the planning and therefore ownership of the completed building. We are always trying to understand the needs and aspirations of communities. When asked if she liked the new dwelling in her front yard, Alice replied It is really good. There is more shade.
