Time, Father Dragon, Ultra sound, Zoey and Boney,

A friend recommended I listen to this piece of music. I was impressed with it. Such a powerful sound and evocative of so  many things.

A very powerful sound. The pictures are good too. This came about because Father Dragon has risen again, do you remember his blogs? These are pictures of Father Dragon's Caves

Re Matt's ultra sound etc. he is booked to see the doc next week so we will then find out, hopefully, what is wrong and whether anything can be done.

Today, Friday, Zoey is coming to see us and bringing lunch too. Clever dog. She is bringing ladydog with her as well. Zoey certainly works as a therapy dog. Matt particularly loves to see her. There is a chance we may get to see Boney in the spring which will be fun. Of course seeing his owners will be more fun.

I saw this recipe and couldn't resist. I love crèpes although I am not sure about bought ones. I bought some once before and Matt wasn't keen. Mind you they are sweet and for this recipe it wouldn't matter. Also, once again, bought lemon curd? It is pretty easy to make your own and it is so delicious. However, buying these ingredients does make it simpler to make.

Lemony Crêpe Casserole

Reminiscent of a classic bread pudding, this sweet-tart crêpe casserole has a beautiful lacy top and
tender-but-sliceable center.

2 (8-ounce) packages cream cheese, at room temperature
3/4 cup store-bought lemon curd
1/4 tsp kosher salt, divided
1/4 cup unsalted butter, plus more for greasing
24 (10-inch) store-bought crêpes
1 medium Meyer lemon, very thinly sliced and seeded
1/4 cup pure maple syrup
1 Tbs powdered sugar

1. Preheat oven to 350°F. Beat cream cheese, lemon curd, and 1/8 teaspoon salt with an electric mixer on medium speed until smooth, about 3 minutes.

2. Grease a 13- x 9-inch baking dish with butter. Arrange 1 crêpe on a work surface. Using a small offset spatula, spread 1 1/2 tablespoons cream cheese mixture evenly over crêpe, leaving a 1-inch border. Fold crêpe in half, and then fold in half again. Place folded crêpe in prepared baking dish. Repeat with remaining crêpes and remaining cream cheese mixture, overlapping folded crêpes in baking dish. Bake in preheated oven until crêpes are heated through and edges are golden brown, 15 to 20 minutes.

3. Meanwhile, melt butter in a large nonstick skillet over medium-low. Add lemon slices, sprinkle with remaining 1/8 teaspoon salt, and cook, stirring occasionally, until lemon peel is softened, about 7 minutes. Stir in maple syrup, and remove from heat. Spoon lemon sauce over casserole. Dust with powdered sugar, and serve.

  2. Hi Jo - glad Matt enjoys Zoey .. and that he'll be seeing the doc next week ... take care and the idea of lemony crepe casserole is a good one for a winter's day. Yes I do remember Father Dragon ... glad he's coming round again - cheers Hilary

    1. He does, very much Hilary. I love crepes anyway.

      Yes, he is definitely stirring.

  3. Did your local station carry the Hans Zimmer Live in Prague concert over the holidays? It was quite entertaining.
    I saw that recipe, but have never seen crepes in the store. Of course, I have never looked for them. Thought that might be a nice spring dessert.

    Curious to know what Matt's test show.

    1. If it did, didn't see it Denise. Never heard of Hans Zimmer before, as far as I remember anyway. Our store definitely has crepes.

      Me too.

  4. I remember the thermal pool all too well...

    1. Swam in it did you Alex? Father Dragon is obviously remembered with fondness.

  5. I can't wait to try this recipe, or to visit with you two again! The music is so calming to me, and gives me pause for reflection...

    1. I can't wait for you two to visit again, especially if you bring Liz with you Lisa. It is wonderful music isn't it?
