Birthday & Cooking!

2 Mondays ago was 2/21......my beautiful mothers birthday! We spent almost 3 VERY FUN hours in the kitchen of Mia Cucina taking a cooking class!! Crepe making.......omletta {as we call them in German!}! We grew up eating these.....the kind my grandparents made were thicker & made with buttermilk but these were yummy too AND I've never made one myself so it was fun to get my hands wet!

Marcy-Owner & Teacher had us practice flipping them without using a spatula......everyone did pretty good!
i
Several ladies from mom's work joined her for the class. We paired off into 3 groups to make 3 different crepes recipes!
PERFECT!
Roasted Pears & Blue Cheese- these were baked and then rolled into a crepe.....HEAVEN!
Indian Spiced Chicken & Creamed Spinach Crepes
For desert- Crepes Suzette Cups with Ice Cream & Orange Butter Sauce!
DELISH!!! We all left STUFFED & HAPPY! A fun afternoon & even better......a fun few hours spent celebrating my mom's birthday!
I won't divulge her age but she looks AWESOME for the 2 numbers she represents!
LOVE YOU M-O-M!
