Birthday Crepes and Updates!


What's better than Birthday Crepes?  Not many things that I can put a finger on or a fork in!  My Fiancé whipped up a fantastic batch of crepes for me on the morning of my 30th Birthday.  His present for me was a charming little crepe pan and a great little recipe book titled, "The Best 50 Crepe Recipes."  The short list of recipes I will be trying soon are:  Chocolate Crepes, Whole Wheat Crepes, and Shrimp and Avocado Crepes.  This little book doesn't just have basic crepe recipes but also recipes for crepe fillings.  Bon Appétit!  

For those of you that have caught it from above...Yes, I'm engaged!  Jason and I recently took a trip to Las Vegas in April and he left as my boyfriend and came back as my fiancé, and I could not be happier!  How did he propose?  We dressed up for a night out, and he took me to a French Restaurant called Alizé at the top of the Palms Casino.  Does he know me or what?  He truly swept me off my feet that night.  The meal was amazing and one of the many highlights was that we both tried escargot for the first time.  Some of you might be gagging right now, but I've always wanted to try it, and honestly it wasn't bad at all.  It was drenched in garlic sauce and quite delicious, but I'm not sure I'd go out of my way to order it on a regular basis.  The entire experience was amazing! 
 
We had a fantastic time in Vegas and I loved to pretend I was in Paris when I looked out our hotel window at Bally's and saw this every morning...

Congrats! It's been awhile, but it was fun to "catch up" with you! Those crepes look awesome...I'm tempted to try making them myself.

So nice that you've kept me on your blogroll! Thanks!
