Yes, it was time for another inspiring and wonderful planning meeting with my sweet Beehives – I now know why they are called Beehives because they are as busy as bees. I know it was supposed to be something about them being industrious and sweet as honey, which they are but my little 4 Beehives (12 and 13-year-old girls) are busy, busy, busy. Not just with life which they are with school, volleyball, softball, golf, gymnastics, friends and family to name a few, but busy with movement and talking and giggling. I love these girls! Today I was so impressed with them, they each took an assignment to plan and prepare an activity that we will be participating in over the next couple of months. To give you an idea of what is in store – we have making a lap quilt for a Children’s Hospital (Sarah is to call the hospital and make arrangements among other things for us to deliver it), learning to make earrings (Victoria will be contacting another cute Beehive to teach us), horseback riding (Olivia is to call around for information and prices) and making a dream bag – a cute craft (Taylor is to call a Young Women leader to show us how). But that was only the beginning of me bursting at my buttons, you know what the number 1 thing was; seeing them at church, sitting together and being there for each other – just thinking about them caring for each other and strengthening their friendship is beautiful, it is amazing.
So what does that all have to do with crepes, well, each time we have a planning meeting; I serve breakfast. I usually cook something new, something I am hoping is delicious. It was a success in this category too. Crepes were so easy, I had forgotten – I had not made them for years. I have to admit my inspiration was Mimi’s Cafe pinterest board. This crepe recipe is almost identical to Mimi’s, there was just a few small and simple changes.
1 cup flour
1/2 cup milk (I used skim because that is what we drink at home)
1/2 cup water
2 Tbs. melted butter
1/2 tsp salt
2 Tbs. sugar
1. Add all the ingredients to a blender, cover.
2. Blend on low-speed until everything is mixed together well.
3. Place in fridge for at least an hour but up to overnight.
4. Heat medium-sized non stick frying pan on stove over medium heat.
5. Melt 1/2 tbsp. butter in frying pan.
6. Pour 1/4 to 1/3 cup of batter in frying pan and swirl around to spread thin.
7. Cook for 1 minute.
8. Flip/turn over and cook for another 20 seconds.
9. Set on plate and cover with parchment paper while you cook the rest of your crepes.
10. Serve with your choice of fillings. (we had Nutella, bananas, strawberries, blueberries, orange curd, and powder sugar available)
Enjoy. Recipe makes about 12 to 15 crepes.
