“If you look at the world, you’ll be distressed. If you look within, you’ll be depressed. If you look at God you’ll be at rest.”
“Memories are the key not to the past, but to the future.”

The Recipe Box
These are good with yummy oatmeal rolls!
6 tablespoons of butter
1/3 C. flour
a dash or two of salt
2 C. milk
1 C. chicken broth
1/2 C. shredded Swiss cheese (I also used cheddar cheese….mainly because I didn’t have enough Swiss 🙂
2 T. snipped parsley
Several dashes bottled hot pepper sauce
2-1/2 oz. jar sliced mushrooms, drained and chopped
10 oz. frozen peas
2 C. cooked and chopped chicken
1/2 C. chopped red bell pepper
12 basic crêpes (recipe below)
For cheese sauce, in a medium saucepan melt butter. Stir in flour and salt. Add milk and broth. Cook over medium heat until thick and bubbly. Stir in cheese, parsley, and hot sauce. Cook until cheese is melted and then take out 1-1/2 C. for later. Stir in drained mushrooms.
For filling, cook peas and drain. Combine peas, chicken, and red bell pepper and the reserved cheese sauce.
Spread 1/4 C. filling over the unbrowned side of each crêpe and roll them up placing them in a greased 12″ X 7″ baking pan. Pour the sauce over the crêpes and sprinkle with paprika. Bake at 370º F. for 18-20 minutes. Makes 6 servings.
I double the chicken-cheese crêpe recipe and do one and a half recipes of the crêpes.
In a bowl combine 1 cup of flour, 1-1/2 cups of milk, 2 eggs, 1 tablespoon of cooking oil, and 1/4 teaspoon of salt and beat really well.
Spoon about 3 tablespoons of batter into a heated and greases skillet and cook until light brown. Cook only one side. Grease skillet occasionally. (The unfilled crêpes freeze well [up to four months] by placing a piece of wax paper between each one. )

The other day Charissa was looking at a road map that was only of one city. She was trying to find our town (which was not on there) and said, “I can’t find where we live!” Noah replied, “That’s because it’s not our world—we live in a different one!”
