It may have passed some of you by, but three days ago it was Shrove Tuesday, known in this country as Pancake Day. And when we English folk say ‘pancake’, we mean ‘crepe’. Obviously.
The Philosopher and I were out on Tuesday night and couldn’t devote the kind of enthusiasm necessary to our first Pancake Day adventure, so we postponed it a few days. I hope the Pope doesn’t mind too much. We also wore our pajama pants. It seemed appropriate somehow.
Anyway, we bought some ‘pancake’ mixture (just add milk!) because we wanted to follow the way of many Brits (and it was on sale!) and got to work. The Philosopher, ever mindful of imminent starvation, was concerned that 6 crepes wouldn’t be enough and might lead to unknown horrors – even death – so we tried to be creative with filling…fillings.The crepe batter turned out to be sweeter than we were hoping, so the whole mushroom/grated zucchini/cheddar cheese combo was a bit of a flop.
What’s your favorite crepe filling?
