the morning of the swap meet

So the boys left early this morning for the annual Super Bowl Sunday Swap Meet at the fair grounds.  Shaun's advice to Country was to make a list of things you are looking for so's you don't forget things you need.  Sounds like us girls when we are headed to the flea market or BellBuckle!  Boys.. and car parts... I was invited but since my normal getting up time is 4:45 A.M. during the week I thought I'd opt out on the 5 A.M. alarm.  Wouldn't you know once he got up I couldn't go back to sleep.  My thoughts were that I deserve a special breakfast on the Swap Meet Sunday. 

I made a small and easy batch of lemon curd from THIS recipe (that I halved).  Let it sit in the fridge for an hour while I started laundry and sang songs as loud as I pleased.  Then I found an easy crepe recipe in my Better Homes cook book.  I popped some bacon in the oven, got out my skillet and warmed it for the crepes, sliced blueberries and got out my teeny sifter for the powdered sugar.  The crepes are fast and fun to make.  You just pour the batter into a warm slightly greased skillet and let it sit for a few minutes and they are done.  I placed one on a plate, spread out some lemon curd at one end, added fresh blueberries , flipped the other side over to cover and gave it a sprinkling of powdered sugar.  By then the bacon was done and I proceeded to have the most girly breakfast I could think of while savoring every bite.  Of course Katie Bug got a little of the bacon.  Sweetie pie.

This is my current favorite song to sing as loud as I please.
