Yes,I love. (recipe for crepe two-ways)

Precious Joy
Precious Joy

This is always difficult. Talking about love and all. It’s easier for me to just show it or feel it. Be it thru a song, a meal or a sucker punch.
Just like right now, I really have nothing to say. Literally even.
I tried preparing what to post in advance but still nothing. My head is filled with Dan Humphrey and Four Tops.

So instead I’m sharing a poem from a Chinese artwork. This is an almost ethereal longing spreading all over me. This for is far better than the wedding vow “’till death do us part.”

Jiang Cheng Zi (Su Shi)
For ten long years,we two have been separated by life and death;
I say I do not yearn, yet I cannot forget.
Your grave separated us by a thousand miles, leaving me unable to pour out my grief.
You would not recognize me even if we were to meet; me with my face covered in dust,my hair streaked with frost.
At night, I fly home in my dreams,
I see you through your window, brushing your hair and painting your face.
We watch each other without a word, only with tears making thousands of streaks.
I suppose at the grave every year, the bright moon shines in the night,on a hill with short pines.

Maya Crepes Two-ways

Basic Crepe:

2 large eggs
2 tbsp melted unsalted butter
1 cup full cream milk
1 cup Maya Original Hotcake mix

Beat eggs slightly,then add butter, milk and hotcake mix. Beat with a wooden whisk until mixture is free from lumps. Heat an 8-inch non-stick pan or flat skillet and lightly brush with oil. Over low heat, pour 1/4 cup of the mixture into pan. Quickly tilt from side to side to spread batter as thinly and evenly as you can. Cook until set. Flip to cook other side. *Do the same for the remaining mixture.

chocolate drizzled crepe

Sweet: Chocolate Drizzled Crepe
Drizzle with chocolate syrup after tilting from side to side. Wait until set, then flip to cook other side.

Ham and Cheese Crepe

Savory: Ham and Cheese Crepe Packets
Right after tilting from side to side,arrange a slice each of ham and cheese in the center. Cook until crepe is set. Form a packet by folding all four sides towards the center making sure you cover the ham and cheese. Brush the last fold with butter then flip to cook the “seal”.

I love to eat but I love cooking even more. I wasn't exposed to a wide variety of food growing up and I wasn't invited or asked to help in the kitchen either HOWEVER my desire to eat a satisfying meal urged me to learn how to prepare and cook.
