The march to the end of DiS! 1972 continues with 71. Seafood Crepes.
And it is a march because I want to get all of these done by March 1st and I am rather without inspiration. And I have no stories (dating or otherwise) to tell. But it is National Drink Wine Day!

I didn’t expect to post nothing but Ramona, but she really is tops when it comes to the consumption of wine. I have a date tonight (lucky you, it may suck!) so I will be sure to knock back the Pinot in Ramona’s honor.
OK, let’s get cooking!
I liked this card a lot because so much of it could be prepared ahead of time. I made the batter the night before and made the crepes and sauce early the day of.
I completely impressed myself with the crepes and was surprised at how easy it was! The food processor made this soooo easy. This is the same recipe that was used in 118. Crepes Suzette (which I didn’t make. Some guy did). It helped that I bought myself a little non-stick skillet at the grocery store. It was worth it. It’s the perfect size for grilled cheese sandwiches, or reubens.
They were perfect little crepes! I made a big stack with the wax paper in between them, but for some reason I don’t have a photo of that. Oh well.
Making the sauce was a breeze since I now know how to make a decent white sauce (the key is always add extra sherry!). The recipe called for shellfish, cooked or canned. Didn’t specify what type. I love shellfish. But I am cheap. So used I imitation lobster. It tastes and looks exactly like fake crab. I think the packaging is just different.
This is the mixture that went into the crepes:
And here it is, all stuffed, rolled, and topped with the remaining white sauce:
OK, I am kinda proud of my presentation with this one:
Seriously, scroll back up. I did good! I’m just missing tomatoes. And check out my Melon Balls/Lime Sherbet. That’s on point–although they didn’t have lime at the Giant so I had to go with orange (fun fact: I hate my Giant. So I am going back to Safeway. They’ve done some remodeling since I moved).
Anyhoo, this was tasty. Would make again. Maybe with actual shrimp or crab or something.
Lastly, I want to give a shout-out to another wine lover, Big Ang, who lost her battle with cancer.
That’s a good life lesson. I hope heaven is full of mimosas, money, and diamonds, Big Ang. Cheers!
