Is your mouth watering??? Mine is. There is nothing like a crepe with Nutella, strawberries, and whipped cream. It's our Saturday morning tradition, that is, until I picked up running :(  Now it's more of a Sunday morning breakfast tradition. At least until church is at 9:00 instead of 11:00.

6 eggs
2 cups milk
3 tablespoon butter, melted
1 1/2 cups flour
1 teaspoon salt
1 tablespoon sugar

Notes / Directions
Put everything in a blender and blend till smooth.  Heat skillet to medium heat.  Pour on and use a spoon to spread and thin them out (thinner is better).  Once the bottom is browned and the top is no longer liquid, flip and gently cook other side.

Serves 4-6 people. For 2-3 people, half the recipe.
