Such a wonderful warm spring weekend. Yesterday at work I added gold machine embroidery to the neckline of this tunic. Now to add tiny gold beads.....


I had made some crepes on my day off, Thursday. They were ready when I invited a good friend to join us last night for dinner and an evening of watching British mysteries....Midsomer Mysteries with John Nettles this time!

I quickly made up the chicken crepes while Karen made the salad and sliced strawberries for dessert.

cooking spray
1 c thinly sliced onion
1 (8oz)pkg. presliced mushrooms
3 c chopped cooked chicken
1/2 c slice green onions
3/4 tsp salt (divided)
1 (10oz) pkg frozen chopped spinach, thawed, drained, and squeeze dried [ I used fresh!]
1 tbs butter
2 tbs flour
5/4 c 2% reduced fat milk
1/4 tsp pepper
10 Basic crepes
1/2 cup (2 oz) shredded Monterrey jack cheese with jalapeno peppers
Heat a large nonstick skillet over medium high heat. Coat pan with cooking spray. Add sliced onion and mushrooms to pan; saute 5 min or until mushrooms release their moisture and darken. Stir in chicken, green onions., 1/4 tsp salt, and spinach.
Melt butter in a small saucepan over medium heat. Add flour to pan; stir with a whisk until blended. Cool 1 min, stirring constantly. Gradually add milk and stirring constantly cook 5 min or until thick. Remove from heat. Stir in remaining salt and pepper. Pour milk mixture over chicken, stir to combine.
[Note: regarding the instructions in green... I just put some cheese into the white sauce and skipped the broiling...and it was good!]
Preheat boiler
Spoon about 1/2 c chicken mixture in the center of each crepe, fold ends and sides over. Place seam side down in a 13 x9 in baking pan coated with cooking spray. Sprinkle crepes evenly with cheese. Broil 2 min or until lightly browned

Here is the recipe again! [Choose the format you like for a copy!]

Lila you are amazing. Love the pear photo on top. Your embroidery is gorgeous.The gold bead detail will really be snazzy!
Your recipe sounds good too.
Have a great week.

I love the embroidery on the tunic.
MMMMM, crepes, you know I have never made them, I fear they would turn out worse than my pancakes ~ which turn out like lead weights.
Yours look so good, the whole meal sounds delicious.
I used to watch Midsomer Murders all the time on A&E then they took it off. I love the English village life. I wonder if they have the episodes at the library.
Hope you have a wonderful Monday.

Thank you for sharing this recipe. I've been wanting to try making crepes for some time now, and you've inspired me to give it a go.

Your tunic and the embroidery are both lovely.
