Today was a good morning. Actually this entire week was pretty interesting. But I’d like to direct my focus my celebratory spirit towards Eric Harrison. On Tuesday morning, Eric walked into his interview and was immediately offered the job he had his eye on. They offered him until the end of the week to consider it, and this morning he accepted it! I rolled over in the bed this morning, and he said “Babe… (with enlarged, glossy eyes) can you make crepes with strawberries this morning?”
How could I say no to that adorable request? I planned on sharing a salmon recipe I made yesterday, but I suppose I can save that for another day. Instead, I made him these special, Cannoli Crepes to say three things: “Congratulations!”, “I love you”, and “Welcome to Boston!“. This opportunity for him means so much to me, because now I know that this is not just my crazy, little journey, but it’s ours. This is not just my city now, but it’s his now too. And now I feel like we are really sharing this together. I’m just so proud of him, and happy that he can own this experience. I think there’s so much someone can gain from picking up and moving to a completely new place. Obviously that’s not easy, and a lot of people don’t have that luxury. But despite the hurdles he had to jump through to move here, it’s absolutely amazing. He really is the best teammate. Anyways, before I get all sentimental, I just want to say: You’re awesome Eric Harrison for taking this leap of faith, and doing something just as wild as I would!
Sadly, I ate ALL of the chocolate chips and pistachios while I waited for the crepe batter to chill
So technically these are only kinda like cannolis… Please forgive my hunger and impatience…you’ll find this to be a consistent issue with me as we go along) 🙂
Despite it all, he really enjoyed them, and I hope you do too!
p.s. – Kandace Anderson, this marbled, golden-rimmed cheese board is getting some action, girl! It’s one of my favorite pieces in my tiny, apartment kitchen. <3
