Supper:

At Aldi grocery store today, Adam saw a frozen gyro kit.  "Ugh," I thought. "I can't believe my husband is buying supper in a box!"
But the gyros were actually very good. We added onion and lettuce. The meat was good, the cucumber sauce was yummy, and even the pitas were fine.
Sorry to show you an eaten portion, but I wanted you to see the meat -- it's lamb.
Strawberries were on sale for $1/box, and I mentioned to Adam that Anna had asked what crepes were. So Adam made crepes for our dessert.
Here's the recipe for the batter (from Cooking at Home, by Jacques Pepin and Julia Child):

1 cupe flour
2 large eggs
1 egg yolk
3/4 cup milk
1/3 cup melted butter
2 tbls sugar
large pinch of salt
3/4 cup water

Use a blender to make a smooth batter. The pan should be at moderate heat. Adam used a pan with a sloping side, which is helpful when flipping them. Brush the pan with butter. It should be non-stick. Cook each crepe over high heat for 45 seconds - 1 minute, until lightly browned. They should look a little like beige lace. Cook on the second side for 30-45 seconds. Cool on a wire rack. They will be delicate, but will become more sturdy as they cool. Allow to cool to room temperature before using. You can freeze them also. Yield: 12-15 crepes.
Heavy whipping cream with some softened cream cheese & sugar:
These were SO good.
Adam made crepe mountains.
