Today's post is going to be just a little bit eclectic as I discuss the events of yesterday. Snack Monkey ended up not having any work yesterday so he was home with me and inspiration struck him to make breakfast crepes using the crepe recipe in Cook This, Not That! Easy & Awesome 350-Calorie Meals. Now some of you may have noticed that the ingredients in the crepe are not actually listed as a recipe in the book which might lead you to wonder how I figured up the calories for it. Well I took all of the ingredients for the crepe mixture and plugged them into the recipe analyzer at caloriecount.com and entered a serving count of four servings per mixture (because the book says that the mix makes four servings). This gave me the calories on the crepe itself. I then took the ingredients that Snack Monkey used to fill the crepes (eggs, cheese, mushrooms) and entered them into the recipe with a serving count of 2 which gave me the calories on a single serving of filling. I added that to the calories per crepe and voila! I have to say, they were pretty tasty!

Had a meeting after work today, then came home and made dinner with Snack Monkey, then cleaned the kitchen and did the dishes.
