made it casserole style so it's easy to serve. but no matter how many ways we serve it up, you just can't seem to get enough of it. so let me show you a new recipe that i think you're really going to love. in a shallow dish we beat together a few eggs with some milk, a good amount of maple syrup, a splash of vanilla, powdered sugar and a little cinnamon. if you want you could make this a bit richer by using half and half instead of milk, or a little lighter by using refrigerated egg substitutes instead of whole eggs. now get this, we dip some hot dog rolls that we've cut in half into the egg mixture and onto a hot buttered skillet, or griddle they go. once one side is golden, flip them and in another minute or so, they're done. the nice thing about these is you can make them ahead of time and keep them in the fridge or freezer and just warm them up when you need a quick breakfast. and although they're amazing, what makes them extra convenient is, you don't need to top them with any syrup since it's shall i say,

jessica rae: recently, a rash of field fires have occurred within the siouxland area, in part due to strong winds, low humidity and the dry conditions. fofomore on these nditions... dennis morrice from klem radio joins us as always. good morning dennis! is there anything farmers can do to help reduce the possibility of starting a field fire during these dry conditions? dennis: good morning jessica. when strong gusting winds are present, farmers need to be especially aware of the possibility of a field fire getting started. a recent survey was conducted by
6:37 am
extension and outreach that shows winds are a major contributing factor with the many field fires that have happened. kris kohl, an agricultural engineer with iowa state university extension says farmers need to be especially cautious as they harvest the dry crops, particularly if winds are strong. kohl says the survey shows that winds are the major reason for combine harvester fires. " " (sot) kohl1 :20 outcue: "take off." (as said): "wind is the number-one factor, especially when you're above 25 miles an hour, to having fires," kohl says. "if we are harvesting, be very careful about bearings and stuff sitting on it because if we get a fire going, it'll really take off." dennis: kohl says it might be wise for farmers to give their equipment frequent breaks to cool off and for clean up. (as said): "stop every two or three hours and take a leaf blower and blow all ofhe chaff off of things. check bearings to ke sure nothing is getting hot. bearings and
6:38 am
exhaust are the two ings that are prevalent when we have fires from combines." dennis: kohl says two years ago, there were t t major combine fires in northwest iowa which prompted the survey. this week's strong winds have contributed to several large field fires in the area, three within plymouth county. both fire fighters and farmers have been busy when those field fires occur. jessica rae: dennis, is there anything further farmers can do to perhaps prevent a fire from happening? dennnn: jessicic farmers should have a fire extinguisher mounted on their combines, and tractors. they may also want to make certain they have a cell phone with them to be able to contact fire officials, and as kohl suggests, take the time to periodically wipe away the corn stalk residue from the potential hot spots such as the engine's exhaust and manifold. and let's hope that
