Crepes, yogurt and jam topped with strep throat and an ear infection

Well, we have had a rough couple of weeks. All 3 kids had a stomach virus two weeks ago, then Adam and I caught some sort of upper respiratory virus that won’t give up. K started feeling puny earlier in the week with lots of drainage and a nasty cough. Saturday evening she had a low fever but by Sunday morning it had spiked pretty high. She was crying because it hurt throat hurt when she swallowed so I was pretty sure she had strep throat. We took her to the minute clinic first thing Sunday morning and she also had an ear infection. K was so sad because she and G were scheduled to go on a camping trip with Adam’s parents Sunday through Tuesday. So we sent G camping with Adam’s parents which turned out to be such a blessing. Yesterday and today, we have been able to focus on pampering K and helping her feel better.

Oh yeah, back to crepes. So Adam is off today (Memorial Day) so we had a leisurely morning (in between checking K’s temperature and giving her medicine and rubbing essential oils on her). We decided to make crepes and use the fresh yogurt and jam inside the crepes. The “perfect pancakes” was a recipe inside Hugh Fearnley-Whittingstall’s River Cottage Every Day cookbook. He is British so his version of pancakes is actually what we consider crepes. We use his cookbooks the most in our kitchen and his recipes are always so yummy! Oh my goodness, they were so delicious!! Enjoy the picture.
