Weekend Recap

Today is the first day of spring!  Yesterday's weather felt more springy than today, but I am just thankful that winter is over.  Caleb and I have had such a fun weekend together.  Here is some of what we've done:

When I got home from breakfast with a friend Saturday morning, 
Caleb had surprised me and left flowers on the table!

Busted out our picnic basket for the first time

Fresh strawberries to eat on our picnic in the park

 Grilled out with our new grill

Success at the used bookstore:  The Help for $1!

Had a lazy Sunday morning and ate homemade crêpes

Got free Georgia Peach ice at Rita's!

Basically we just enjoyed being together.  I hope all of your weekends were equally wonderful!  And here's the recipe for crêpes.  These are so easy and are perfect for spring and summer with fresh fruit and yogurt.

Simple Crêpes
1 cup flour
1 Tbsp sugar
1/4 tsp salt
1 1/2 cups milk
4 eggs
3 Tbsp unsalted butter, melted

Combine all ingredients in a blender.  Purée until mixture is smooth and bubbles form on top, about 30 seconds.  Let batter sit at least 15 minutes at room temperature.  Heat a 12-inch nonstick skillet over medium heat.  Lightly coat with butter.  Add 1/3 cup batter and swirl to completely cover bottom of skillet.  Cook until underside of crêpe is golden brown, 2-3 minutes.  Loosen edge of crêpe with a rubber spatula, then with your fingertips, quickly flip. Cook 1 minute more.  Slide crêpe out of skillet and repeat with remaining batter.  Coat the pan with butter as needed.
