Crepes, Regular and Gluten Free. Who doesn’t like pancakes?

Crepes, Regular and Gluten Free

Let me rephrase that. Show me a kid (and that includes kids-at-heart) who doesn’t like pancakes and I’ll eat my…my…I’ll eat my…frying pan. But I’ll need some maple syrup on that, please. When my kids were small I never got louder cheers to the answer of “What’s for supper, Mom?” Than when I said “Pancakes”.

It worked. Gilbert serving the guests Salt the dish well, to taste. Rouladen, a Christmas Eve Tradition. What special food do you eat on Christmas Eve?

Rouladen, a Christmas Eve Tradition

Is it maybe a seafood feast, or fondue, or roast goose? Maybe it’s the twelve significant dishes of the Ukrainian tradition, or the Polish version? Is it the French tourtiere, or maybe the Scandinavian boiled cod and potatoes? Whatever it is, I wonder if just thinking about that food instantly brings back all the memories of your childhood Christmases – all the glorious, warm, crazy, love-filled, family times? It does for me. Fleisch Rouladen. Last week I made eighteen Fleisch Rouladen and put them in the freezer. This year will be the first time we eat Rouladen without him.
