Seriously, I kind of feel like I was in the loop long before the blogging world caught on to it. In sixth grade, when we rotated throughout the year to German, Spanish, and French class to decide which language we wanted to continue with, the French teacher was the one who introduced me to Nutella. In fact, I almost went with French as my main subject because I liked the food we had that day. Because, yes, I base major life decisions on food.
Since I'm the only blogger/Pinterest user in the world who has a recent infatuation with Nutella, and a pre-PMS hankering for something delicious and sweet, I thought I would whip up some crepes for lunch.
(Another side note: I chose to go with Spanish. More variety with that food, I think.)
Nutella had been facing some heat from mothers after airing commercials that made the product sound healthy. However, they don't fool me. That's why when you add some fruit and nuts to the mix, you have yourself a nice, well-rounded meal.
For the crepes, mix 1 egg, 1/3 cup of flour, and 1/2 cup of milk in a bowl and place in the refrigerator for a little while before turning on the stove. Get a small pan nice and hot, spray with a little bit of vegetable oil, and pour just the slightest bit into the pan, swirling around to cover the pan evenly. Flip once it's cooked almost the whole way through, and then stick it on a plate to add your toppings.
This particular recipe made four crepes, perfect for one person (however, judging by the food baby in my stomach and the Saturday afternoon lazy fatigue, it was maybe a little too much).
Can you tell which was the first one I made?
They were delicious, except for the cutting board that I used to cut the bananas on was the one that was used last night to chop garlic. Every few mouths had a bit of a garlic-y undertone, which was interesting. Oh well, nothing a little more Nutella can't fix.
