Crepes before the train...

Sometimes, I have to remind myself (or rather Jace does...) that the whole reason I studied international business in the first place was the travel the world and do business... internationally. And while I am not knocking the job, oh no, especially not in this economic climate, at times the travel is really tiring and after you have seen the inside of the ICE train a few dozen times as well as the Frankfurt Bahnhof, the allure is lost. But I will tell you one thing that keeps me motivated... crepes.

That is right. It is totally pathetic, but I cannot get back on the train to come back to Zurich without shelling out a few Euros for an obligatory nutella crepe in the Frankfurt HBF. It takes them a mere minute to make these thin pancake packages filled with nutella, and I mean chocked full, all warm and melty and heavenly. I am convinced a crepe is the best incentive for most things...


Now, I know that I could be adventurous and make my own crepes, but I don't have a crepe pan, and hell, what else would get me on the train after I figured out the magic and ate crepes everyday? Please, do me a favor, and eat a crepe sometime in the near future and tell me if it doesn't inspire you, too... now let me just check my diary to see when that next business trip is... ;)

Ohhhh yum! I love crepes, but, the only way to eat one in the near future for me is to make 'em. Could be interesting.

We just spent a week in France; 3 days were in Paris where I had crepes daily - they were fabulous! Keep on enjoying your crepes in Frankfurt! I'm sure they are good for your soul.

Mmmm, crepes!! Ok, I totally understand about having the motivation and excitement of those business trips linked to crepes. That said,... just think about how good they'll be if you do make them at home. Warm? You can eat them with your fingers as you take them out of the pan. And any omelette/saute pan will do, no need for a special crepe pan. Next, chock full? Just think how much Nutella you can shmear in there yourself!! Oh la la!

As for what would get you on the train thereafter, I have but one question - do they serve gaufres at the train station?? ;)

Thanks for another fun and deliciously inspiring post!
