Contraption






I here by interrupt my regular service of Fall photos to participate in www.illustrationfriday.com This is one of my favorite illustrations. I've posted it before. But not for illustration Friday. (I don't think) The little brown mouse in the corner is wielding a gadget, device or contraption. And don't we all wish we had a mouse to do the peeling for us. We just stocked up on Honeycrisps. 4 big bags. But I haven't made this recipe with apples yet this Fall. I made it with peaches recently. Yum. Making crepes is easier than you might think. (click on the image to enlarge directions) You can make the batter the day before and you don't need a crepe pan. Just drop a dollop of batter in a hot buttered pan, grab the handle and with a twist of the wrist spread it out to cover the bottom. Just cook briefly on each side. Easy! The only hard part is getting the mice to clean up after you!

Love this painting! How come my mice never do the cooking?

Just had to comment, as we both did apple peelers. But yours is MUCH more charming than mine! Was this for "They Draw and Cook"? It'd be perfect!
