Ricotta Blintz w/Caramel Apples

Good Morning!

So Justin & I had to get up kind of early today because our landlord needed to come by to fix the doorbell. So to treat ourselves I made us breakfast – a rare treat at chez Lewis-Marion.

If we have breakfast, it’s usually just a cup of coffee and a piece of toast with some cream cheese and jam. Sometimes, also, a piece of fruit. I haven’t made bread for a couple of days, so we’re totally dry, not to mention today is Market Day, so I had to get a little creative with what we have left (namely cheese…)

In a bowl I mixed 2 eggs, 1/4c half and half and 1c whole wheat flour with a pinch of baking powder, a pinch of sugar, a pinch of salt and a drop of almond extract. The batter was still a little thick, so I cut it with some milk. This is roughly a crepe batter.

In a saucepan, I melted 1tbs butter and mixed in it a handful of brown sugar, a drop of almond extract and a tiny bit of cane sugar syrup (plus one tiny clump of baking soda) and tossed in two sliced apples.

I cooked the crepes and set them in the oven to keep warm until the apples were ready. The apples are cooked only slightly enough to let some of the water leech and thin out the sauce.

I placed a crepe on the plate, spread some cold ‘gansett creamery ricotta, topped with the warm caramel apple and rolled up, then sliced in half and sliced up 1 blood orange for the side. Woot, effin woot.

omg, they were so freaking yum!

AND, Borba, you’ll like to know I ate a bit of Portuguese Cheese today at the market. It wasn’t too shabby, but it had its own flavor; something I couldn’t quite nail down.
