Scenes from Supper

greenbeansI am not feeling terribly inspired to write this morning.  Trying to find my inspiration and nursing a bit of a headache.  These weather changes really aggravate me!  Cold or hot- make up your mind!  So I will post you a few ‘”foodie” pictures from last night’s very delicious supper of Tandoori Lamb and sides.

And here are the beginnings of dessert.  I made crepes.  I whipped up the batter and it chilled while we ate supper.  Then I offered up strawberry, blueberry, peach, Nutella or citrus sugar for filling.  Served with homemade whipped cream.  Very delicious.  And I had enough crepes left over (see notes below) for today if we like

I have more pictures to post but will save them for later.  Oh…and here is a glimpse of my new prairie skirt.

I LOVE it.  I ordered if from Urban Prairie Girl (etsy- DUH)

Oh yeah, one more thing ~ in honor of Thoughtful Thursday I will leave you with this:

‘The creative person is both more primitive and more cultivated, more destructive, a lot madder and a lot saner, than the average person.’  — Frank Barron


Notes on Crepes:

For immediate use: Stack crepes as they are baked and keep covered. Store at room temperature.

To refrigerate: Wrap stacked crepes well in foil or plastic wrap and store in refrigerator for no more than two or three days. Let the crepes stand at room temperature about an hour before filling or serving.

To freeze: Separate crepe layers with wax paper and put in a tightly sealed container. Crepes will freeze well for up to four months but handle with care as frozen crepes are fragile and will break easily.

Allow crepes to thaw completely before unwrapping and separating to prevent tearing.

Filled crepes may be frozen but use discretion in selecting fillings. Choose foods that normally freeze well and remember that crepes absorb liquid easily and become soggy.

Thoughtful Thursday

A new idea for my blog.  Every Thursday I will post something thoughtful, thought-provoking or timely.  Doesnt mean that is all I will post…but it will be my starting point. And I got the delightful idea from a book I just received as a gift: Minutes from the Great Women’s Coffee Club timeliess wisdom from remarkable women by Angela Beasley.  I highly recommend and THANK YOU Nicole!!! For this and the tea and precious little angel.  You are a dear!

Anywho I thought I might share a quote, though or impression on Thursdays. Here is the first go at it.

I had found that motherhood was a profession by itself, just like a school teacher or lecturer.

~ Ida B. Wells

Ida B. Wells (July 16, 1862 – March 25, 1931) was an African American civil rights advocate and an early women’s rights advocate active in the Woman Suffrage Movement. She was the co-founder of the NAACP, a journalist, lecturer, educator and writer.
