Saturday Morning with ZE FRANK!

*All misspellings and puncutations are to emphasize my false FrEnch AccEnt! If it is capatilzed in the middle of a word, emphasize that letter!


Oh hohoh!!! (Said in my most snotty french accent)

We are a PBS family around here (no commercials) However, on Saturday morning you have to find an alternative and I personally prefer the Mickey Mouse Club House. Why? Because that song is catchy, and the other reason would be ZE FRANK!

ZE FRANK is a dog, who just happens to be a chef (a French Chef no less) he gives healthy snack ideas...

So, in honor of ZE FRANK, I decided to post our Saturday morning breakfast, because it was oh sooooooooo ZE FRANK! Oh lala!

Abby requested CREPES... and before you go zinking dat crepes are too difficult an' fussy, simply...ze are not!

FIRST: You put 2 eggs, 1 1/2 cups milk, 1 cup flouEr, 1 Tablespoon of Oil and a dash of salt! Whip it up with a wisk and VOILA! You have crepe battEr! (I can't figure out how to do an accent grave)

Zen, you put a few Tablespoons of your batter on a skillet... medium heat.. Oh ho ho!!! Roll your skillet around to make ze circle. (Don't worry! It will not be pErfEct!) It will look like dis!


Zen, you will make a little fresh berry sauce (don't worrEy! Jam will do!) You take frozen fruit, add a little orAnge juice and sugAr and if you want your sauce a little zickEr you can add some corn stArch! You bring it to a boil.. snap snap and it is finIshed! It will look like dis!


Zen, you simply take your crepe, add ze sauce and top with powdEred sUgEr, and Whip cream and VOILA! Zuddenly you are a FRENCH CHEF! And, your breakfast looks so....... oh lala! Yet, it iz not!

(Sorry about ze dIrty plate.. I did not get our ze cAmerA until round two!)

Your childrEn will smile with GLEE because who does not like WHIP CREAM FOR BREAKFAST, NO?

Be careful with ze wee one's because fruit crepes are VERY messy... VERY.....

Enjoy your CREPES! It is a fun festive idea, No?

Crepes are my 8 year old daughter's FAVORITE breakfast. She wishes I would do it more often and they really are easy. Not any more work than pancakes. We've done the fruit sauce, but we also like to butter them, then squeeze lemon juice on them and then sprinkle them heavily with powdered sugar (got the idea from IHOP or some pancake place). MMMMMMMMM good!

Yum! I love crepes. My husband makes really good ones. He served his mission in Norway and so to him they are just Norweigan pancakes.

We fill ours with a thin layer of sour cream and a grated walnut/sugar mixture, about equal parts of each. I know, sounds a little odd, but soooo good. And hey, Jon's dad IS French, remember?!

Your Frrrronch es magnifIque!

I am so copying you. My kids will be FREAKING out. I am not a cook (I don't like the time it takes... I know that is a lame excuse..). But I think I can handle this one. You made it sound so doable!

I love your french...what a nice mom you are. I avoid any breakfast that requires prep so I will tell Aric about this one.
