A Pre-Valentine's Day Breakfast with Crepe Recipe and the Boy's FinishTheir Valentine Cards

Crepes and Heart Shaped Valentine Pancakes
I found this package at Wal-Mart
(of course normally I would never buy these but they were so easy and good)


These pancake shapes I have had since I first got married almost 26 years ago
(The two with the handles)

The pancakes were pink and had tiny chocolate chips

I put fresh strawberries and kiwi in the crepes
my hubby couldn't get enough

The boys sat at their art table and finished their Valentine cards

Cody helped Dusty do his
Cody would ask who you want to give this one too? Dusty would reply
"Momma"
I ended up with 10 Valentine's
Gotta love it!

Colten finished quick

Colby enjoyed his

Cooper was giving one to everyone

Dusty gave Daddy one too and a big kiss


Hello again,

   Are you ready for Valentine's Day? Well I guess we are today we had a sorta a pre-Valentines Day. I made pink Valentine pancakes with chocolate chips and crepes filled with strawberries and kiwi. The pancakes were a  bought package and good too. I always make just about everything so for me to buy these pink pancakes was kinda hard...I even had put them back twice and then said what the heck...the kids will love them and they did and so did hubby! So I am glad I made the purchase. The crepe recipe is:

Ingredients

  • 2 eggs
  • 1 cup  skim milk
  • 2/3 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1 pinch  sea salt
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons vegetable oil
  • 1/4 tsp of vanilla

Directions

Mix the eggs, milk, flour, salt and oil. Mix on medium speed until smooth. Cover and refrigerate 1 hour or over night. Heat a skillet over medium-high heat and brush with oil. Pour 1/4 cup of crepe batter into pan, tilting back and forth to coat the surface of the pan, I use a large skillet.  Cook 2 to 4 minutes, turning only once until golden brown.  Continue until you have used all your batter. Fill with puddings, creme, vegetables, fruit, etc.

The boys had bought these cute mailbox shape boxes full of Valentine's. They were able to get all theirs done and in time for the Valentine's Day Party at school tomorrow. This is always a fun love filled holiday. Let me know what is planned for your Valentine's Day. Cyber Hugs, Dawn Gallop

I wish I was one of your kids! So much fun you all have! I have the same heart things with handles and well I've had mine since I got married too probably! I've never used them tho..well the boys used them for play doh once. I will have to remember to get creative with pancakes. I am going to try those crepes. Brent loves them but I've never found a good recipe!! Thanks for sharing!!

Happy Valentines Day to you and your family!!
