Out to dinner

Tonight I made reservations...out to a local steakhouse, where I will most likely
order the bone in fillet Mignon - no cooking tonight!

This morning though I made crepes, with sugared bananas for filling - I love crepes because I wake up very early anyway, so I just blend up the batter and pop it in the fridge - then when everyone else is up the batter has sat long enough so that the bubbles have settled, which makes it easier to make the crepes. I use a medium saute pan, a little butter and about 1/4 cup of batter per crepe. I eat mine with just a little butter and sugar, but I usually toss some fresh fruit with a touch of sugar to fill my daughters:

Easy Crepe Recipe

  • 3 Tbs melted butter
  • 1/2 cup water
  • 3/4 cup milk
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 cup flour
  • 2 Tbs sugar
  • 1 tsp vanilla

Blend in a blender and refrigerate for at least 1 hour and up to 24. Use about 1/4 cup of batter per crepe. Butter a medium saute pan and heat over medium heat, pour in batter and swirl around to coat bottom of pan, cook for about 30 sec per side. Take off and sprinkle with a little sugar and fold in 1/4s.

For banana filling:
cut up a reasonably ripe banana and sprinkle with 1 Tbs sugar and 2 tsp lemon juice, fill crepe
you can serve with whipped cream if you want
