This morning I got an email from a friend, a devastating email that reminded me how very precious life is. I shed a tear for her and wished there was more I could do than just reply to the email and keep her in my thoughts and prayers. But so often in life that is all we can do – be present for people.
So today I am hugging my boys close, spreading my love with my family and friends and remembering that we are gifted with one life, so we should make it the best we possibly can.
I thought about just posting without a recipe, but I know my friend shares my passion for food and whilst I am sure cooking is the last thing on her mind, I am showing my love with a recipe I am know she will love.
These seafood crepes are for you dear friend, I hope that in time you will have a reason to smile xxx
I created these seafood crepes because I was so very disappointed with something I bought in the supermarket, I should have known better, but they were reduced and I thought “why not”, I can tell you why not…because they were stodgy and lacked flavour!
So I made my own, and it was so worth it!!! Those of you in Australia may well know the specific item I am talking about, I am not naming the brand, I didn’t enjoy it, but many people must do. I am not a food shamer. (I eat Ikea hotdogs and I am proud of it!!!!) But if you have eaten said store bought seafood crepes and been disappointed then do try this. If you have eaten store bought seafood crepes and loved them then do try these as well! I am sure you will love them.
I am off now, I am going to get in the kitchen with my boys and make some memories. Much love to friends, family and readers (who I count as friends!).
Make today count xx
