Crepe Chinese style

A simple yet delicious breakfast crepe Chinese style, made from all purpose flour, water, chopped green onions, egg, sliced ham (added cheese for Alan’s) and deep fried shallots. I wrapped some crispy lettuce in mine, very satisfying.

Last time of waring this Spring/Summer floral dress of this year, the weather is turning to Fall soon.

Watermelon and pineapple plate for our guests’ visit.

Crepe pan was found here.
