So I realized two things over the weekend.
First, I have become a pro at making crepes. The first time I made crepes they turned out highly sub-par and I am pretty sure half of them tore and the other were highly deformed. Highly deformed means large holes. Large holes means the fillings WILL leak out.
But I am proud to say I have masted the art of crepe making. Yes!Second, brie is the most buttery, delicious, melty cheese. And brie stuffed in a crepe with spinach and artichokes and then drizzled with a sweet honey sauce is roll your eyes back good.
Really, I think you will all agree with me on that one.
Oh, and something else I am also just realizing?
It is the first full week of May!
Really, how the heck did that happen.
Time is flying before my eyes. I really wish I could just hit the pause button. My life, and pretty much everyone else’s lives around me, have been go, go, go. Non-stop.
In less than a month we’ll be packing up and heading to Oregon for the summer (oh someone please help me find a way out of this one!). Wait I take that back we’ll be heading to Oregon for our second round of winter.
Please tell me you guys have fun, laid back summer plans?
Lots of cold ice cream on hot day’s? Grilling up good summertime food? Enjoying the HEAT and the SUN!
I will live vicariously through you guys, K?
My mom loves crepes. Which is why I absolutely had to master crêpe making. Which in all honesty I am making sound much worse than it is. Really it’s pretty much like cooking a pancake, except you gotta swirl that pan so you get a nice thin crêpe. Then you just carefully flip and your done, in like two minutes. Pretty simple. Your first couple may be flops, but after two or three you’ll get the hang of it!
And really you gotta make the crepes so you can eat the filling. Spinach and artichokes and brie!
Then the honey sauce. You gotta do the honey sauce. It’s warm and sweet and is SO good with the brie.
Oh yeah, the brie. It’s melty, it’s buttery and it is so crazy good with the honey. And the crepes. And the spinach. And the artichokes. Oh, Oh , Oh and I am pretty sure if you make these for your mom (or you tell your kids to make them for you) you’ll be her new favorite child. Unless of course you are her only child, in which case you will have cemented your place in her heart for many years to come.
Final thoughts? Brie + crepes are awesome, but they are even better with some honey! ….Oh, and time NEEDS to slow down! Like way, way, down!
