My Short Lived Adventure in Crepe Making

Hello, I wasn't going to post this, but for some reason I felt that I should.  I tried to make crepes yesterday, and it was scary. So scary that I didn't take pictures of them because I didn't want anyone to have nightmares after seeing them. No, they didn't burn; they just fell apart.

I started out making the batter and it ended up being too thin. But instead of starting over I decided to use it anyway, thinking that it would be less of a waste if I used the too thin batter. I coated the pan with none stick spray and poured my first scoop of batter into the hot pan. This one, unbelieveably, turned out better that I thought it would. It was still an eyes sore but it turned out. The next three, however, stuck to the pan. After that I decided to give up for the day and just make pancakes. Those were good, and they didn't look half bad either.

So, I decided to put off the crepe making for another time. When you feel like you want to throw the batter at the wall then it's time to take a break. Maybe next time I'll take more time and thought into the crepes. And I can make the crepes with berries that I was planning on making anyway.
