Crepes

The children of Whoville all love to eat Crepes.

Their names are Thing 1
and the Beaner and Cool
Fashionista and New Kid.
Trust me, they rule

Eating Crepes on a chair
or a table or floor
They don't care where they eat them
They always want more

They would eat them with foxes
And even with Apes.
They would eat them in t-shirts
or wearing their capes

Would the people at your house
Like eating crepes too?
Make them today
This how to is for YOU.

Ingredients: Water (not hot, cold is fine)
Milk (2%, Whole, Skim, doesn't matter)
Salt (Iodized...it's better for you)
Flour (White, Unbleached)
Oil (I use Canola~ oops not pictured but VERY important!)

Pour 1/2 cup water into BlenderAdd 1/2 cup MilkAdd 2 EggsBlend WellWithout turning off the blender, Add 1 cup flour and 1/2 tsp saltAdd about 1 Tbsp. oil

Blend well, scraping sides of blender (be careful, don't scrape while the blender is blending.)Heat small non stick skillet on stove. Spray with cooking spray.Pour small amount of mixture into skillet, pick up the pan and roll the batter around to cover the bottom of pan.Cook until the shine is gone from the top of crepe. Layer carefully on a platter.There are so many ways we like to eat them. Butter and sugar. Raspberry Jam. You could even make it savory with sausage and scrambled eggs. How about PB&J. My favorite is with Nutella and sliced bananas.

One of the Whoville favorites is butter and powdered sugar. Another favorite is cherry pie filling and whipped cream.Crepes are a huge favorite in Whoville and get requested on a regular basis for both breakfast and dinner. Try them on your family and friends, they won't be disappointed. And neither will you!

You're the best!! What a great mom! How did you learn to be such a good cook! Oh, I know, Cycle guy taught you! And, also, supply must meet the demand! Some time CG will have to tell how he makes "slam cakes"!! You have so many good recipes, you could cook for me any time! Even something different from enchiladas!!

I forgot to comment on your poetry! You are way talented. I love to read all these neat things you come up with. You have to be a good Mom to come up with all this good kid stuff!! Maybe you should work in, say, a children's library!! lv u

Ohhhhh, crepes are our family favorite too. My daughter Annelise use to make them every Saturday morning. Then she left for BYU and it was back to cold cereal. However, she has been home on her off semester and she has not made them lately. Your post has reminded me of how much our family loves to eat crepes and I think that will be our meal tomorrow morning.

I ADORE crepes! And this seems so stinkin' easy. My favorite is when I put vanilla icecream in the middle topped with hot fudge and whip cream. Totally sinful....
