Crepes


Once a week, I make the effort to cook up a breakfast beyond cereal. Today, I made strawberry-cherry filled crepes. I debated if strawberries and cherries go well together. My logic was they would because they were the same colours. It worked out in the end. It’s my version of crepes that satisfies my sweet tooth.
