Orange Crepes

It was Cooper and Hamish's first day back a day care today, after having them home for the past three weekes l felt completly lost at about 2.30. The house was deadly slient, I missed their tiny feet running up and down the hall way.

So as a special treat l decided to make them their favorite dessert, the crepes are the perfect treat and only take a few minutes to make. The boys including Will love their's piled with fresh mangos and l couldn't agree more!.

Makes 15 Medium Size Crepes

250g Flour
600ml Milk
2 eggs
1/2tsp Salt
Zest of one Orange
2 tblsp of Orange Juice

Combine all ingredients together and whisk until combined. Cover the mixture and let it sit for 10 minutes.
Heat a lightly oiled frying pan over medium high heat. Pour or scoop the batter onto the fry pan. Tilt the pan with a circular motion so that the batter coats the surface evenly.
Cook the crepe for about 2 minutes, until the bottom is light brown. Loosen with a spatula, turn and cook the other side. Stack the finished crepes by putting wax paper between each one. Keep covered with a dry cloth until ready to eat.

Just thought l would also share the art smock and library bag l made for Cooper. The art smock fabric was chosen by Cooper l tired to get him to choose something else but he had his heart set on it.

It's been a while since l've gotten my sewing machine out so l was a little bit rusty, but l think they turned out ok!
