Remember when I said I had ideas for any leftover crepes you might have? WELL.
I am a woman of my word. I’m also a woman who likes: (1) caramelizing things, (2) warm, fragrant herbs, (3) sweet and savory combos, (4) big hunks of brie–the more rind, the better, and (5) occasional decadence.
I mean… Damn.
I can only show you a photo, but this is one of those times when a photo doesn’t feel like enough. Let’s pretend you can hear the crackling/bubbling of melted sugar and smell the burnt (in a good way!) sweetness, lush ripe fig, and toasty, woodsy thyme.

Today, I organized the dickens out of my closet.
Then, I did this in front of said closet:

Then, I organized my pantry and did the same thing there.
Recaulked the tub. Very similar scene.
Finally, I made these crepes for lunch. Ditto.
Sometimes it doesn’t take much to feel awesome, and a lunch like this–it really isn’t much. The crepes part may be a little time-consuming, but it’s worth it. Not to mention that I’d much rather make 1,000 crepes than spend literally even 8 precious seconds organizing shoes. Boooorrrring. This lunch, though? Not boring.
Remember when we made crepes? Do you have leftover ones? Did you find yourself saying, “These are fresh-tasting and delicious but far too healthy and booze-free?” Yeah? I knew it. We are friends for life.
Here’s something to consider for your next weekend breakfast. Or weekday, I suppose. If you have time to make a breakfast like this on a weekday I’m way, way jealous, by the by.
Sometimes I drag my laptop into the kitchen with me–sometimes for recipes, sometimes for some tunes. I love me some tunes. I don’t know what it is about cooking, but iTunes spits out just the most brilliant shuffle-driven playlists EVER when I’m cooking. If technology is going to have a human-murdering uprising spree… We’ll probably have a pretty good soundtrack, which means I’m like 80% okay with it. Ahem.
So I made you some crepes for breakfast, filled with fresh, delicious end-of-summer sweet corn and zucchini. And a fried egg. Oh, and I thought I’d share this rather killer playlist my computer magically concocted for me while I was making them. Sometimes I swear my iTunes has a humanlike, aesthetically attuned brain and it’s better than mine.
