In a large bowl, whisk eggs. Add water, sweetened condensed milk, rum or vanilla, melted butter, and stir. Whisk in flour slowly, so no lumps form. Do not overmix; stop as soon as the flour is completely incorporated.
In a crepe pan or large nonstick skillet, melt 1 teaspoon of butter over medium-high heat. Have two clean plates ready. When butter bubbles, quickly pour in one ladle (about 2 tablespoons) of crepe batter and roll the pan around so the entire bottom is covered in a very thin layer. Cook the crepe, shaking once or twice to prevent sticking, until most but not all of the batter on top has set, or the bottom is golden brown, about 2-3 minutes.
Slide the crepe onto a plate, cooked side down. Quickly invert the plate into the pan, flipping the crepe. (If you're feeling brave, you can use a thin bladed spatula or palette knife to flip the crepe over.) Cook another 1-2 minutes, until golden brown. Slide onto the second to cool.
Continue with remaining batter, adding more butter as necessary, stacking crepes on top of each other on second plate.
There are so many different ways to serve these, savory like I made or sweet. Spread a crepe with cream cheese (plain or flavored), sprinkle with fresh cut fruit, roll up, and serve with whipped cream.
I put an old photo on one of our tables and Paul knew right away it was his Peepaw, who passed away 3 months before he was born. We talk about him a lot. And look at old photos. It makes me happy that he knows him, after all, he was named after him.
I hope to make this cake, to be perfectly honest, I have orange marmalade that we're trying to use up:
P.S. I have a sweet tooth just like my dad did...oh, my mom is feeling better!
My first attempt at Fair Isle...a cream alpaca yarn for the snowflake.
I'm using the leftovers from this hat I finally finished crocheting. We are on the trampoline in this photo...sunny and 50 F.
The socks above are a gift from Hannah... my fav right now. Little River Sock Mill, made in the USA. ❤ And a better view of my hat!!
This is Olivia's dragster. She designed it, cut it out of wood, sanded it painted it blue and won first place (for the fastest one!) in her whole class. No one thought it would win because it was so thin, they assumed it would break. Paul can't keep his little hands off it.
