Just a follow up to my last post… I had to share this picture – such better representation after a second try… and a Saturday morning special le petit-déjeuner (breakfast) request from my two boys, Brendan & Dane… love that they already dig the divine délicatesse. Since we’re not in France, I’ll bring as much French as I can to them (until someday, when we can do the real deal…)
Forget the toast and cereal. On Fridays, Saturdays and Sundays, we have more time to be cultured in our kitchen. Crêpes it is. I’m amazed at how filling these can be, as they appear to be so delicate and light. And, what a great way to start the day. mmm.
I don’t mind the mess I make getting these ready. Jeff and I often joke that I create all the dishes. Maybe. But at least he helps out. Regardless, we constantly have dishes drying on the counter and dirty ones in the sink. And, we run our dishwasher at least once a day. It’s a never ending cycle. I envy the chefs on the cooking shows. They have all their ingredients measured and chopped for them. They cook with the best cookware and with high end appliances. Their food always has the best presentation. And, they never seem to have to clean up their kitchen messes.
Back to my proud photo – here’s my crêpe with blueberries and confectioner’s sugar. Served with a cup of illy café au lait on the side. Heureux le petit-déjeuner pour vous!
Oh, and thanks to my sister (who loves and appreciates cooking and fine food just as I do), I will be making crêpes in my very own crêpe pan very soon! I got a birthday gift card to Sur La Table and had so much fun browsing their site for kitchen goods. I can’t wait to use my new pan! And, thanks again, sis!! (I also bought a wooden crêpe turner, a scalloped ceramic baker and a cheese plane.) Au revoir…
p.s. thanks to babelfish for such a great translation service.
