Merry Christmas and Happy New Year to you all!
I began Christmas morning making crepes for my family. I used one of my brand-new, work gift-exchange non-stick skillets! I love the rhythm of making crepes: That moment when the pan is exactly hot enough and seasoned, and the crepes just smooth out over the bottom, are cooked and flipped and end up light and fluffy and lacey. We filled them with nutella, homemade lemoncurd, and ham and cheese.
Next I made pies for my mother's party later in the day. Have yet to hear how they went.
Thanks to my parents, who bought me lucious copper-bottomed stainless steel pots for my brand-new stove! (What does it mean when your parents start buying you traditional wedding gifts for Christmas? Have they given up?)
