Menu Plan for Fall I: Week 9, Friday

Egg Crêpes with Leeks and Ham
Salmon, Balsamic Glazed
Pasta with Olive oil and Sage
Cauliflower with Paprika

Cooking time:  40 minutes for menu          Cooking schedule: see below for instructions

        Egg Crêpes are much easier to make than the traditional crêpe using proper batter.  A bit of flour makes them easy to roll up.  This should use up the rest of the cauliflower from last week.  An easy dinner to end the week!

Egg Crêpes with Leeks and Ham

Total time: 25 minutes
   This is a cross between a crêpe and omelet, using more eggs than a crêpe but with the addition of flour to make it sturdier and easier to roll up than an omelet.  Like both, they can be stuffed with anything. Use a light filling for a first course or something more substantial for a light lunch.
