Cranberry Crepes

“I think careful cooking is love, don’t you?
The loveliest thing you can cook for
someone who’s close to you is about
as nice a valentine as you can give.”
Julia Child

Cranberry Crepes

One of my favorite food items is a crepe. They’re light and delicate and you can have them as an appetizer, entrée or a dessert.

When I was in Davis a few weeks ago, once again I ate  at Crepeville in old town Davis. They serve every crepe you could image. I’ve tried quite a few of Crepevilles’ crepes and every one has been delicious.

For the longest time, I’ve been looking for the right crepe pan. I happen to find the right one at a lovely culinary store in Davis. Never having made crepes, I was a little nervous with my first try. But, thanks to this perfect pan, the crepes came out perfect.

Keeping with the Thanksgiving leftover tradition, we have turkey for a few days after Thanksgiving. By Saturday we are pretty sick of turkey, so I decided to give this years leftovers a French touch. I took some of the leftover fresh oranges, apples, fresh cranberry jelly and whip cream and made Cranberry Crepes.

We survived another Thanksgiving dinner. All the turkey was divided up amongst family and friends along with all the side dishes, including the pumpkin pies.

Our Black Friday is never spent shopping. Mostly because we have spent the last two weeks shopping and cooking and all we want to do is relax and enjoy the peace and quiet.

Friday evening we spent watching the National Dog show on NBC. As dog lovers, we enjoy watching televised dog shows. If you missed the show, there was quite a lineup of contenders.

The top dog to win the National Dog show title this year was Charlie the Skye terrier. The four-and-a-half-year-old pooch from Ocala, Florida, beat out 1,700 other dogs.

The moment he entered the ring, I turned to my husband and said, ‘Wow…!  “What a beautiful dog. He’s definitely heads and tails’ above the competition. Now that’s what I call the best of show.”
