11:44 am
good any time of the day well if you want to do something just a bit different for your family... howard has a unique spin on the classic dish. take a look! "carrots are one of those vegetables that we seem to take for granted i think it's because they've always been so plentiful, they're so reasonable, and are they ever versatile. i mean just think of all the dishes that have carrots in them. everything from fill-you-up soups to hearty roasts. after all, what's a salad bar
11:45 am
without a good carrot salad, or a dessert table without a big carrot cake slathered with cream cheese frosting? but the star today is a dish that we would probably never expect to find carrots in . our pancakes. all we do is mix together a generous amount of shredded carrots, a bit of finely chopped onion, some eggs, oil and some flour to bind everything together. now to give this its big flavor, we add in some grated parmesan cheese, and a handful of seasonings along with a bit of baking powder, which helps these puff up. once this is mixed, we'll spoon them onto a hot griddle (or skillet) and cook them just like we would any other pancake. for a few minutes on each side. these are more of a side dish type of pancake than they are a breakfast one, which makes them a welcome addition to any meal. i do hope you'll go online and get the recipe for our, "crazy carrot pancakes." and if you're thinking, why do we call these crazy? it's because they're crazy easy, crazy good and i haven't met a person who isn't crazy about them. i'm howard in the mr. food test kitchen, where today we found a "crazy new way" for you to say . "ooh it's so good!!" " jessica rae: if you would like a copy of that recipe you can send us a self addressed

after more than 30 years serving his country... richard rabb is still serving his community. this time, as a bus driver for the sergeant bluff- luton school district. "so it's been a very, very interesting life," said rabb. richard spent time in the navy and the air force. enlisting right after high school, he says he's greatful to got to serve. but, it was his experience in the cold war and vietnam that made him the man he is today. "when i first got out of high school, i midly, i was probably too much trouble and it was probably the best thing that ever happened, that i went into the navy. it didn't take too long and they and i've been respect our our flag. i'd definitely do it all rabb. little did he know, he would eventually dive into submarine school where he would train to drive nucleur subs... unique military

for duty in the cold war, the u-s became involved in the vietnam... and he was put on standby for both. "at that time, we was just... a deterrent is what we were. if things were needed we were there and we were there on a nuclear sub. obviously there wasn't that much that we could do there that was going to justify, but at the same time the cold war was going on and we actually had 41 submarines that were built for the cold war and we were just a deterrent because nobody knew when things were going to change with russia," said rabb. decades later, richard has started a new fight... to help other veterans get the benefits they deserve with the help of american legion in sgt bluff. he also feels its his mission to be a support for the men and women who've been through what he has. richard says, "cause there's a lot of guys that have a lot of stories to tell and they really don't tell their families, they really don't tell anybody. it just kind of hangs in there to where it's burried in their mind and a lot of times, a veteran talking to another veteran is just a lot easier to do. you both know where you come from, you've both been through the training and it just makes a lot of difference." richard keeps the memories of the men he fought with
11:50 am
close to his heart... and his mind. "the reason i wear my pow hat a lot is [because] i've got a classmate from 1964 that was in the army and he was over in vietnam and first time out he had gotten shot...and they couldn't get to him and they went back to get him the next day and he wasn't there," said rabb. as he proudly honors the veterans that never made it back... and those who need a little support back at home. in sgt. bluff, bria bell abc 9 news. jessica rae: richard says he'd love to pass along the military richard says he'd love to pass along the military tradition to the younger generation in his family. he has two teenage grandsons who are starting to ask about his time in the military. he hopes maybe they'll want to follow in his footsteps. jessica rae: scott's up next with a final check of our forecast. stay with us. jessica rae:
