Yesterday I was reading a blog post by Carol G. < Paris Breakfasts> and she was naming some ways to listen to French language. One of the ways was to tune into On Va Déguster to listen to interviews on cooking....so I did. I randomly selected one interview which had a couple of chefs who are known for their crêpes. It was interesting and it certainly will help me understand the language, at least I hope so.
As I am a lady of leisure full-time....it's great!....I decided to make some crêpes. I've made them many times in the past, but this would be the first time in quite a long time. They are so easy to make and so versatile. I made a small batch, just 6, and used the first one today for lunch.
I decided to have one filled with brown rice and asparagus spears, topped with an onion and baby portobello cream sauce. I did all the prep work yesterday, so I just had to cook the crêpes and assemble it all today. It was delish...and quite filling too.
|the mushroom cream sauce.....the yellow is a piece of butter melting for extra richness and sheen|
|if you use melted butter in the batter, make it earlier and keep in the refrig, and use a non-stick pan, it won't stick......|
|it looks thick in this photo but it's not.....|
|some of my blue and white antiques bought in Geneva, Switzerland 30 years ago.......pretty|
|isn't it looking lovely? even fresh picked chives from my garden......|
Later on in the day, I ate another one of the 6 filled with raspberry jam....yum, yum.
Now, I am contemplating how to use the remaining four....hmmmmm. So far, I've decided to fill one with scrambled eggs and salmon for brunch tomorrow; then, fill one with chicken and lentils; next, for my sweet tooth, I'm going to fill one with my homemade vanilla ice cream and top it with my homemade caramel sauce with a touch of homemade chocolate sauce. That leaves just one to go....maybe another one filled with rice and asparagus laced with more mushroom sauce since I have those left over from the first one.
Voilà, c'est tout.
