My taste buds are going crazy over these flavorful crepes. Strong enough to hold all the delicious fillings you can imagine, but thin and light like a great crepe should be. I decided to concoct a savory sautéed spinach and garlic, hummus, and pepitas combination with a drizzle of sriracha sauce on top, but feel free to use your imagination here. Best part is, the crepe recipe alone can be either sweet or savory! Or maybe you want to have some crazy combination of the two. I'm picturing a jazzy teriaki sauce with crisp red bell peppers, pineapple, and mushrooms. But seriously, get creative and these crepes can handle it.
So this week, boy oh boy. Yet again, another crazy and hectic one. Can't say I'd love to repeat it though (unless there were more crepes involved.) I have successfully had Brinner (which is a word smush of breakfast for dinner -or- Brittany's fav dinner) just about every night this week. First, Vanilla Chickpea Waffles, then bagels with my grandma's home grown + homemade raspberry jam, and now crepes. No complaints there! At least I can always fall back on the food in my life to cheer me up when all the immature boys *ahem* in my life are draining me of all my positive energy.
It's been exciting to get more settled into my new job as a personal assistant and even more exciting to have already done such a stellar job, that I've been referred to another business owner (by my current boss) to start working for him as well. Of course, I don't have the second job yet, so I shouldn't count my chickens or anything, but either way, it's nice to hear positivity and appreciation for the 100% I always give at a job. This has already been a complete 360 from my last (bartending) job where the managers didn't have a clue what working with integrity looked like or how to recognize and appreciate the hard work all their employees were doing. In any case, I'm incredibly thankful for all the new doors that are opening because as much as eating healthy does good things for your body, so does having positive people/circumstances in your life.
