Sick Day PB&J

Audrey woke up this morning saying her tummy didn’t feel good. While her temperature was barely 100-degrees I figured it was better for her to stay home than send her to school only to have to pick her up halfway through the day. For lunch I decided to surprise her with these PB&J Crepes she’s been asking me to make her. We saw them one day on an episode of Food Network’s “Giada at Home.” It was the first time I ever attempted to make crepes. The ones in the picture were the last batch so they turned a little more brown than they maybe should have. I think they turned out pretty good, though. None were ripped or doubled-over in the flipping process! The only changes I made to the recipe were frozen raspberries & blackberries instead of fresh blueberries and skim milk instead of whole. Audrey ate 2 and is ready to go back to school tomorrow!


p. 230: Grilled Peach & Blueberry Pie

Grilled pie? Yes, grilled pie! If you’ve ever made a “rustic tart” (which I haven’t) you’ve made a pie suitable for grilling. Just put it all on a heavy-duty foil tray instead of a baking sheet, cooked over indirect heat in a covered grill for 30 minutes and you’ve just grilled pie! What a thing of beauty…if I do say so myself!
