Friday Foto: Dessert Crepes with Vanilla Ice Cream

Continuing the blueberry sauce theme from last week's Friday Foto, this week is all about more dessert.  Namely, natural vanilla ice cream wrapped in fresh crepes, and then topped with blueberry sauce.  So good.  There's really not much more to be said about the recipe itself.  The crepe recipe is straight out of our cookbook.  The blueberry recipe was identical to last week.  And the ice cream was a store-bought all-natural French Vanilla.  Quick.  Simple.  Easy.  Home run.

Now, before you think we're dessert-aholics (which we sometimes are), there was a method to our madness.  First, my mom was in town visiting from New York (out of town visitors is always a good excuse to whip up a tasty dessert!).  Second, we were "celebrating" Kelli passing her glucose screen which tests for gestational diabetes (we're expecting baby #2, if I haven't mentioned that here on NGNP before...).  And thirdly, both Marin and I were down with a nasty case of Hand, Foot and Mouth Disease (adults aren't supposed to get bad cases of it... I guess I was one of the "lucky" ones).  Since we were both in a good bit of pain, we needed something cold to eat that would go down smooth.  

And so there you have it - a perfect storm of factors that all added up to one thing: dessert crepes with vanilla ice cream and blueberry sauce.
