Strawberry Banana Crepes and Herbed Potatoes

After church today, me and my roomies decided that we wanted to make a delicious meal, and what's better than crepes and potatoes? Ha. Well the food was fun to make and it was super yummy (and I usually hate crepes). My roomdawg, Rebekah, made the crepes. And I made the herbed potatoes and creamy strawberry syrup. It turned out delish.

Rebekah's Crepes
2 eggs, beaten
1 1/2 c. milk
1 c. flour
1 T. vegetable oil
1/4 t. salt
*Beat the ingredients together. Heat a lightly greased skillet; remove from heat. Spoon in 2 T. batter; lift skillet to spread batter. Return to heat; brown on one side only. Invert over paper towels. Remove crepe. Repeat with remaining batter, greasing skillet occasionally.  When ready to eat, fill crepe with sliced strawberries and bananas and top with creamy strawberry syrup (see below) and whipped cream.

Sarah's Herbed Potatoes
1/2 bag or about 10 potatoes, washed and cubed
1 onion, chopped
blend of herbs and spices:
oregano, basil, rosemary, garlic salt, pepper, cumin, curry, cinnamon, chili powder (just a tad)
*Boil the cubed potatoes until they are in between tender and hard (because you will be frying them later). Drain and cool the potatoes in the fridge (covered). In a frying pan (I used a wok), saute the onion in olive or vegetable oil for only about one min, add the potatoes. Add the herbs and spices to your liking. I like to add the cinnamon (only about 2 pinches) and chili powder (only one pinch) toward the end of frying. The combination of these spices may sound weird, but they taste delicious together.

 Creamy Strawberry Syrup
1 1/2 c. smashed strawberries
1 c. water
2/3 c. sugar
1/2 c. heavy cream
1 t. vanilla
*Heat the sugar and water over medium heat. Add the strawberries and stir with a whisk. Bring to a boil; boil for a few minutes. Whisk in cream. Take off burner and stir in the vanilla. For thicker syrup, mix about 1/2 c. water with a spoonful of cornstarch or flour in a cup, whisk this into syrup while it is still boiling. Take off burner. Serve over crepes, pancakes, waffles, etc. YUM! (I love this stuff).
