The best crêpes ever!

This weekend has zipped by so fast that it's hard to believe that it's almost the start of yet another work week!

I organized the 2nd Annual Art Expo in our neighborhood. We had fused bead art, paintings, baked goodies, beaded jewelry, friendship bracelets and marbled cards. The kids enjoyed receiving accolades for their handiwork and they literally glowed from renewed self-confidence. Like last year, we had a raffle and the prize was a smaller version of the Wisp scarf that I had knitted earlier this year. Two guinea pigs, a swarm of wasps and a shy bullsnake also put in an appearance and added to the overall excitement.

We rushed to the Louisville Farmers Market soon after the Art Expo because we had heard so much about the new crêpe stand, Crêpes a la Cart. We had always walked around it before as the lines are just too long but by 1 pm or so, it's usually so hot that most folks have eaten and gone home or given up on the long line. We shared a lunch crêpe with mozzarella cheese, asparagus and all the veggies they had left. The vendor called them interactive crêpes and encouraged us to add our touch. We added just one thing! Watch the video to find out what!



Sunday saw us dreaming of a hike in Chautauqua Park. I had underestimated just how popular the area is because everyone and their dogs were there. Parking? Dream on. We headed up Flagstaff Road instead and went on a short stroll. We parked at Realization Point, took the Ute Trail to Sensory Point and back via Rangeview Trail. Just over a mile long, this walk was lined by wildflowers - only two were new to me - and the views of the Front Range on the way back were spectacular. (Photos from this walk are coming soon!) Given that Boulder Falls has been closed since late March due to a tragic accident from falling rocks, this short hike is the next best option for out-of-town visitors, especially at this time of the year. It's short, it's easy and it won't deplete whatever oxygen they have left in their lungs.

How was your weekend?

Perfect for that kick... :)
I think a dosa-tava should work as well! These do look great! Do you think you might be able to deconstruct and actually give us another recipe?

What did I do this weekend...Oh, well... we went to see Jog Falls, went to the beach, saw an 850 year old temple, got drenched in the rain, took a train thru Karnataka-Goa Konkan (oooh delicious paddy fields...)...Yes, i think that just abput covers it. Oh, of course, enjoyed Udupi food! :D

Thats perfect! Organizing a art Expo is something great! For some tech reason I was not able to see the video and couldn't guess anything from the comments ;) Crepes with cheese and veggies sounds inviting! We just moved to a new house and the weekends are filled with sorting out things and aranging. Looking forward to next weekend to get enough rest :)

How wonderful that you organized this art fair in your community! I love the crepe video, and especially that wooden paddle used to mow down the batter.

What did I do this weekend? I tried a bunch of new recipes, and finished knitting a scarf for myself (it is blocking now). Very low-key but fun anyway.
