School Breakfast

I finally got to go grocery shopping. I'm not sure I got a full list of ingredients for any one thing except crepes, which I made for breakfast this morning. Ever since I learned to make them, they've been one of my favorite breakfasts. Crepes, sausage, and Perrier were my hangover cure in college. I don't make them as often anymore, but they're still my favorite sweet breakfast. The recipe I use for sweet crepes is:

1/2 C all-purpose flour (I use half wheat, half white, but it makes them a little heavier. Adding a little more milk helps, but it's never quite the same)
1/2 C milk (soymilk works, too)
1/4 C luke warm water
2 large eggs
2 Tbl spoons unsalted butter, melted
1 1/2 Tbl spoons sugar
pinch of salt

After mixing the ingredients together it's best to let them sit for half an hour, but if you absolutely can't wait, it's not the end of the world...I think it just comes out a little lumpy.

Unfortunately I had to eat my crepes while on the phone in the kitchen instead of with everyone else. I've been dealing with auto insurance all morning. I hope, for your sakes, that you never have to move from a place where you don't have a car to one where you need a car immediately, because it is really not convenient.

I would like to tell you that I got the car, but the reality is that I only sort of did. In fact, I bought the car and then it broke down at the gas station. So they had to lend me a car while they replaced the battery. Supposedly they're dropping off my actual car today.
