I’m posting at Fatal Foodies today, where I say Fat Tuesday, Schmat Tuesday. Meanwhile, over here, I’m using the term Pancake Day, because it’s a tradition to use up all the sugar and fat in making rich foods–like big fat pancakes.
The L.A. Times has a series of Mardi Gras recipes. Crawfish and gumbo (okra–yecchh) which didn’t appeal to me, but this one grabbed me hard: Crepes WITH NUTELLA! It also has bananas (which I have not got) and cognac sauce (if I had it, I’d drink it, you get me?), but, toppings aside…. Crepes! With! Nutella!
If you don’t know what Nutella is, I pity you. Go thou forth and have some–so long as you aren’t allergic. Nutella is heaven’s own blend of chocolate and hazelnuts. I would eat my keyboard, if it had Nutella on it. Good stuff.
