Sami Taprock Breakfast ~ Shortcut Fruit Crepes ~ Pat Tracy ~ Patty & Cliff Kuehl ~ Pound Cake Day

Good 34º cloudy morning. Not as gloomy as usual! 

Yesterday morning I met Brian, Jen, Tucker, Sami, Sami's pal Ava , and Grandma Jean at Taprock for breakfast to celebrate Sami's birthday (it was Friday).
I got her this crazy "harry" card that sang...
The waitress Letty brought a whipped cream chocolate covered ice cream with a candle for Sami.
My breakfast was an omelette with salsa, avocado, and sour cream and fruit and a blueberry muffin. OMGOOOOD!!!
After breakfast Brian got Dash out of the car and he played with the kids ...

Brian walked him over to the bears that he barked at earlier. He's such fun!

After breakfast I headed to Winco for dog food. Remind me NOT to go to Winco on a Saturday. Good grief, the store was over-crowded and the wait at the cash register was LONG!!!

This recipe for Shortcut Fruit "Crepes" uses an easy and unexpected shortcut - tortillas! You won't believe how light and delicious these taste. They're perfect for filling with your favorite berries and topping with a dollop of whipped cream.
  • 2 eggs
  • 1/3 cup milk
  • 2 tablespoons granulated sugar
  • 1/4 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1/4 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 8 (6-inch) flour tortillas
  • Cooking spray
  • 2 cups mixed berries
  • 1 cup whipped cream
  • Confectioners' sugar for sprinkling
In a medium bowl, whisk eggs, milk, granulated sugar, cinnamon, and vanilla until well blended.
Heat a large skillet or griddle over medium heat and lightly coat with cooking spray.
Dip a tortilla into egg mixture, coating completely. Place tortilla in skillet and cook 2 to 4 minutes or until golden, turning halfway through cooking. Place on a platter. Repeat with remaining tortillas.
Divide berries equally down the center of each tortilla. Fold in sides "crepe"-style and top with a dollop of whipped cream. Repeat with remaining crepes. Sprinkle with confectioners' sugar, and serve immediately.

Special day for my friend Pat Tracy. HAPPY 87th BIRTHDAY PAT!!!
And it's dear friends Patty and Cliff's 67th Anniversary! HAPPY ANNIVERSARY KIDS!!!

Yes, it’s National Pound Cake Day but, did you ever think about why they call it pound cake?  Old recipes use a pound each of butter, sugar, eggs, and flour then mix and bake. It would keep for a week and was considered to many their “daily bread.” Now a-days you would add a tablespoon of vanilla extract and baking soda then bake at 375º until you done. It’s just that simple.

Here are today’s five thing to know about Pound Cake:

  1. The Pound Cake is a British creation that dates back to the early 1700s.
  2. Pound cakes are generally baked in either a loaf pan or a Bundt mold, and served either dusted with powdered sugar, lightly glazed, or sometimes with a coat of icing.
  3. In Britain pound cake  is more commonly known as ‘Sponge cake’ or ‘Madeira cake’.
  4. The German Eischwerkuchen is a recipe very similar to the pound cake.
  5. In France pound cake (named “quatre-quarts”, which means four-quarters) is a traditional and popular cake of the French region of Brittany, and as its name implies, uses the same quantity of the four ingredients, but with no added fruit of any kind.
