Breakfast for Dinner
We used to do this back home sometimes – make breakfast food for dinner. And breakfast food as kind of like desert so that’s especially good. I thought of this idea, but I did have one reservation. If would mean that I couldn’t try to get Mya to stay and tell her she could have breakfast with me in the morning. Have to think of a new line there.
Anyway, I decided to make Belgian-style crepes. With the French influence in Canada, this is popular and you can get some good materials. I’ve always felt that in a crepe, the most important thing is the pastry or pancake if you want to call it that.
I have a local bakery and I picked up some very good ones. Light and fluffy. So I started with that. I filled them with a variety of things… spiced apple, blueberries, strawberries, I used sweet cheese in some. Then of course I covered them in whipped cream and toppings consistent with the inside. I put some fresh fruit on the side too.
It was breakfast time so we had orange juice. But it was also dinner time so we had vodka. I believe the “orange juice” the guys were having was a lot more vodka than oj. We also had Bloody Marys, which work for all hours of the day. I like to use Absolute Peppar with a liberal amount of tabasco, a little Worcheshire, and a some Guinness on top. I had some leftover Guinness from that keg we had the other night. It’s rare that you can find a use for stale Guinness.
Everyone loved the food and the concept, but Ted was a little taken back by the spiciness of the Bloody Mary’s. The Asian girls tend to like spicy stuff. Mya came which I was happy about and she was very friendly. But she didn’t stay the night with me. I still don’t know what’s going on with that girl…
