crepes for the wheat impaired

I have discoverd a great crepe recipe.

You mix:

2/3 cup gluten-free flour combination (see below)
1/2 tsp. salt
1 1/2 cups milk or non-dairy liquid
3 eggs
2 tablespoons melted butter

Put in the fridge for 1 to 2 hours.

Then you cook the batter in a seven-inch pan as you would regular crepes. They're really easy to work with. If you're sensitive to eggs due to the gluten-intolerance, I'd still consider giving them a try. My husband has a sensitivity to eggs due to the long-term damage caused by the gluten, but he can eat them if they're combined with other things. (So things like cakes aren't a big deal.) Because crepes are folded around and topped with other things, and you only get so much egg per crepe, he does fine with them.

*Gluten-free flour:

1 cup rice flour
2/3 cup tapioca flour
1/3 cup potato starch flour

About a week ago we had curry chicken crepes, which were fabulous. Tonight we had blueberry crepes with a really amazing spiced sauce, e.g. brown sugar, butter, cinnamon, nutmeg...


Mostly spent the day with Avadore (he's feeling pretty needy today) playing horses and robots and cars and things like that. I'll get a bit of writing done tonight after he goes to bed. It's an early bedtime for him tonight -- I don't think he slept well during his nap and he seems really tired today.

I did do a bit of reading before I took my nap that's related to the story I'm currently writing. I had some further ideas about the course of the story.

And I still need to do some editing on "Bison's Child", but that'll happen sooner or later, I suppose :).
