"My 11-year-old daughter is taking beginning French. Tomorrow, as a treat for the end of the academic quarter, her teacher will be making crêpes. The teacher encouraged the kids to bring in different sweet fillings for the crêpes. Of course, I didn't learn about this until around two hours ago. After doing a quick mental rundown of what groceries I have on hand, I suggested from-scratch vanilla pudding with a cut-up banana. We whipped this up, and it was quick and easy. We also sampled it and it's delicious. I wish I could be there to sample the crêpes tomorrow!"
