Crepe Sandwich

Mike and I made these the other day and I have to say they were quite tasty.

Susanne's Crepe Recipe
1 1/2 C. Milk
3 Eggs
1/4 C. Melted Butter
1 C. Whole Wheat or White All-Purpose Flour
Dash Salt

Mix ingredients in blender. Add the butter first then flour so the hot butter doesn't cook your egg.

I used the ingredients for a California sandwich and tweaked it a bit, but really anything that would be good in a Pita Pocket would work.

1 Avocado Sliced
1 Tomato, sliced thin
1 Cucumber, sliced thin
2 Tbsp. chopped Basil or Cilantro
Salt & Pepper
Alfalfa Sprouts
Pepper Jack Cheese
Deli sliced Turkey Breast

Chive Spread
1/4 C. Greek Yogurt or Mayo (or 2 Tbsp. of each)
1 Tbsp. Finely Chopped Chopped Chives (I used scallions, they're cheap)

Place the cheese and meat within reach of the stove. Pour batter on med-high skillet. Pick up the skillet and rotate it while tilting it to thinly spread the batter. According to Mike flip it when the edges are browned and start to curl.....As soon as you flip the Crepe place cheese on one half of it and layer meat on top of the cheese. When your crepe is done fold it in half so the cheese and meat are sandwiched and remove from heat.

Now smear it with chive spread. Place remaining ingredients on one half of your crepe (which is really a quarter of your crepe). Fold it in half again so it's quarter sized and eat:)

Tip-When you remove it from the stove it's good to have some parchment paper on your plate so you can fold it around your crepe. It's easier to pick up that way, otherwise I eat it with a fork.

Tip-Have strawberries and whip cream on hand for dessert crepes:)

P.S. I meant to post that I conquered the world of granola not that I concurred the world of granola.............it's pregnant brain. I knew it was spelled wrong but even my 5 minutes of searching dictionary.com didn't fix my problem. I also maintain that it's more important to know you're spelling it wrong than it is to spell it right.

Sorry it has been awhile. Really I just don't have a lot to post most of the time.

The Happenings:
-Ruth has finally started calling me Mommy or Mama. It's infrequent but it does happen.
-She sometimes calls Mike Dadoo.
-She can put her boots on all by herself. On occasion she struggles which results in the most fantastic meltdowns.
-Mike Aced his last test:)
-The temperature is currently 75 degrees and I'm wearing flip flops........there are tornado warnings for today and the weekend.
-I'v concurred the world of homemade granola.
-New baby moves on a regular basis, which didn't help when I had a yucky kind of stomach flu.
-Ruth is still in the 90's in all her stats.
-Mike and I are half way through season 3 of Murder She Wrote on Netflix.
-I'v taken to buying Coke Zero and hiding it around the apartment so Mike doesn't dump it out:)

The End.
