Breakfast at Auntie Jane’s

Auntie Jane is such a wonderful person.  She’s Gretchen’s aunt, and she is great fun to be around.  I first started hanging out with her in the summer, and last week she invited Gretchen, Jan, and me over for breakfast!  I was so excited!  It’s always a blast when we get together because we’re a bunch of foodies and get excited over things like cookware (I just bought a set of Paderno pots and pans.)

Auntie Jane made crepes and a mushroom, onion, and spinach puff pastry tart.  Her secret to crepes is using half and half cream (I’ll have to ask her for her recipe next time.)  She stuffed the crepes with a filling that was made with peach jam, vanilla yogurt, whipping cream, and cream cheese.

Thanks, Auntie Jane!

Breakfast with Jan #1

Being back home is great.  In between all the mad writing, I’ve been eating.  My mom made TONS of food (she’s cooking as I write this) and I managed to snap some pics of her food.  Unfortunately, I never did get to the chestnut cake before my sister dug into it, so I’ll have to get a pic of that next time she makes it.

This morning I went to Jan’s house for breakfast.  I missed our breakfast dates so much!  Today’s menu included scones with whipped cream and jam, baked apple oatmeal, and cafe au lait.  We had a good time catching up, and planning our next breakfast date.

Cafe au lait.

Light, crisp scones!

Thanks for the wonderful breakfast, Jan!  You never fail to impress me!
