We planted peas a few weeks ago and even though the weather has been very unpredictable and cold, they have managed to keep on growing.
This was a fun quilt to make. The blocks were simple as was the applique. This pattern is called Fantasy Garden designed by Nancy Rink.
Crepes are a tasty treat in the Spring. They can be eaten for breakfast, lunch or dinner.
3 eggs 1 ¼ flour
2 cups milk ½ tsp. salt
3 Tbsp. butter, melted
Mix all ingredients in blender until well mixed. Heat a medium non-stick frying pan over medium heat. Pour ¼ cup mix into pan and rotate pan until bottom is completely covered with batter. Let cook until crepe begins to brown and use rubber scraper to flip crepe over and continue to cook until light brown. For sweet crepes add ½ tsp vanilla and 1 Tbsp. sugar to the batter. The crepes can be filled with pie filling, pudding, fruit, whipped cream, or a cream cheese filling. Sprinkle with powdered sugar.
For dinner crepes fill with meat, gravy, cooked veggies, cheese or a cheese sauce.
My friend gave this recipe to me a few weeks ago. It's easy to make and pretty tasty. Thanks, Jayme. I think I'll try putting some diced asparagus in it sometime.

I enjoyed this murder mystery. The main character is a percocious eleven year old girl who enjoys dabbling in chemistry. I hope in future books she gets along with her sisters a little better.
My friend, Susan, made this little snap purse for me. The opening is made using a metal tape measure enclosed in a fabric casing. It easily opens and snaps closed.
