Get ready for a long weekend...

I think for many people Memorial Day weekend begins on Friday. That makes for a nice long break and many areas have festivals and art shows and other fun things to do. I hope you are among those with local events.

I, like a lot of others, don't post daily. We all have so many fun blogs to catch up on and leave comments, that it can get a bit daunting. But this time I'll veer away from this custom, as I wanted to let you know that I decided to call the restaurant mentioned in Thursday's post. I spoke to the person that answered the phone, because the managers were unable to break away. I explained the situation and she was very apologetic and assured me that all the proper measures would be made to correct the situation. Well, that was step one. We will see what happens. Thanks for your input.

Since lunch yesterday wasn't up to par, I felt like a special treat was in order for us. You may know that I avoid all sugar and flours, but that didn't keep these crepes from being absolutely delish!
I use arrowroot (cornstarch) in the recipe instead of refined flour and for a light filling, I spread on an all fruit spread (no added sugar), folded the crepes into quarters and topped with fresh sliced strawberries. This crepe recipe is found in Dr. Gott's No Flour, No Sugar Diet book. There are lots of other delicious recipes.

Since there are so many things going on this weekend, I just might take a bit of a break and enjoy the sunshine and shows and such. So just in case you're wondering, that's where I'll be. Now if something really fun pops up, I just might have to tell you about it. In in any event, we'll talk soon, so enjoy your weekend and have fun and be creative.

Yum, I should share some of my clean eating recipes. No refined sugars or white flour. It is all unaltered food. These look wonderful and I bet the corn meal is a nice touch to the flavor on these. I do a baked chicken finger that is coated in almonds, parsley, and whole oats. We dip in horseradish sauce. Very good.

Bad weekend for us (I am sure we will make light anyway). 120 people are out of jobs at DHs work. He isn't ready to retire and try to find a job at 65. I used to work there too, but retired when I got married. So, I know a majority of these people personally. It is so sad. They will be working through the transition anywhere from end of June to the end of December and then they are on their own. Some people will go right away. It was a hostile take over. It sucks. I am just glad we didn't buy a home and are still renting.

Love you, have a wonderful weekend. Enjoy your delicious looking cooking.

Susan - I think you should have a blog give-away for some delicious crepes... already made... not the recipe... ;) Hope you find something fun to do this weekend and we get to hear all about it!

Those crepes look so good! I'm glad you spoke to someone at the restaurant you wrote about - and I hope they clean up the way they do things.

I hope you have a great weekend!

YUMMY those crepes look so good. How long have you been doing the no sugar and no flour thing? Just curious on the basis for this? I hear this all the time.

You did the right thing by letting the restaurant know about your experience. A good restaurant owner wants to know. The crepes look yummy. The last time I had crepes was many years ago on a Paris street corner...forgot all about them.
