It's a Crepe Day to Be Alive!

It's Saturday, a perfect day for a time consuming breakfast. My family loves to be spoiled for breakfast on Saturdays and today I decided to try something a little different- Crepes! Oh, my! They were out of this world delicious. I used theBasic Crepe recipe and it turned out lovely. I would give this a five star. The kids had theirs stuffed with a bit of blackberry jam and mixed berries. Dustan hates raspberries, so his was stuffed with strawberries. I had one of each. Wonderful!

There is a lot of things going on in the house today- A good friend is coming over to help Dustan with some electrical work so we can hang a dual micro/vent over my stove. It will be wonderful to be able to cook without having to open all the windows and STILL have to listen to the ear piercing smoke detector.

The second plan is to clean out the new sewing room. I lost my sewing room when we gave Marcus his own room for his birthday. We threw all my sewing stuff into a new, teeny, tiny space and it is a mess. We have to get it cleaned out today because I have family coming in and my sewing room doubles as a guest room. There is nothing like company to spur one on to complete all those undone and put off projects. I do have to say that I am looking forward to being able to sew next week. I miss my machine.

I can't believe you're leaving me hangin' like that! Aren't you going to share the recipe???

Oh, by the way, I read on another blog that they're making a movie out of "The Other Boleyn Girl". Now I really need to read that book before the movie comes out.

Have fun cleaning!

The recipe is in a link in the text. Click on the recipe name. I changed the colors a bit so that the links would be easier to see.

I am not so excited about the "The Other Boleyn Girl" movie. I don't care to have great stories that are told first in books, re-told in movies. They always do a crummy job. With the exception of "Wizard of Oz". That was a horrible book that they somehow made into a great movie...perhaps because they changed most of the story...

Oooooooh ok I see the link now. I will have to try that soon.

I somewhat agree with you on the whole book/movie thing. Usually, 99.9999999% of the time the movies just suck.

But...the book Where the Heart Is by Billie Letts was made into a movie and it was exactly as good as the book. At least I thought it was. Did you ever read that book?

And..I've heard that Chronicles of Narnia is WAY good. We haven't seen it yet. We're a bit behind on our movies.

Later tater.
