Easy Banana Crepes

I was in the produce section buying strawberries, blueberries, bananas etc...and ran across a package of crepes. Yuuummm I love crepes, then I flipped over the package and saw 1 crepe only has 50 calories and 1 gram of fat. Okay I want crepes now. So picked up some cream cheese and decided I would figure something out.

1 crepe
1 tbsp of fat free cream cheese
1/2 banana sliced very thin
sprinkle of cinnamon
little bit of powdered sugar

Place your crepe on wax paper or foil so it won't stick. Use a butter knife to spread cream cheese thinly over your crepe then put the thin sliced bananas on top ( I would recommend putting them on in straight lines, it helps make the rolling up easier. Sprinkle cinnamon to taste. Roll them up, place on foil and put in the oven until golden brown. I had mine at 300, but who knows? Take them out and sprinkle powdered sugar on top and enjoy!

Best part....Crepe 50 cal 1g fat, Fat free cream cheese 1tbsp 15 cal 0g fat, 1/2 banana 50 cal 0g fat. Oh yeah for a grand total of 100 calories and 1 g fat!!!!

I have been using this great site for a while where you can find the nutritional value of just about anything, right down to the vitamins.

The newest member of the Cassedy/Dale family


Napping with big sister :)
We got him on the 4th of July and he has been the perfect little puppy.
Sorry Steph...I couldn't just say I got a puppy you had to SEE the puppy!

Never ending project

Most of it is finished, there is some trim to finish and we still need to get a shower door as well as towels and decor. I know I am putting it off...the doors have to be custom glass and I just got a shower curtain which is the "oh it's temporary....that turns into 6 months. It was not an enjoyable experience and I totally dread doing the other bathroom and kitchen. I do wish I had a before picture and I think Shawn's mom does. Imagine beige porcelain tile, white ugly tile in the shower oh and a tiny tiny door, we knocked out the entire wall in front of the shower. Imagine white cabinets almost the length of the wall with a countertop from the late seventies early eighties (gold swirly stuff in it) and ugly ugly brass fixtures on everything.

With this being my first remodeling experience I didn't realize 1. that everything is twice as expensive as you think it might be and 2. you have to pick out so much stuff!~wall color, sink fixtures, shower fixtures, lights, tile, toilet aggghhhhhhhhh


Trevor came home with us from the visit to Arkansas/Oklahoma. Seems like so long ago but was just the middle of June. The drive home was scary for a little bit. It is possible we drove through the edge of a tornado. And I found out that NO ONE answers their phone at 9:30am on Sunday morning. I was desperately trying to get a hold of someone to have them check a radar online. Going down I40 in Oklahoma, the clouds came and there was a large (looked like a funnel) cloud but I couldn't really see rotation. All of a sudden the wind came and blew us so hard I thought we were going off the road, then the hail. It was pretty scary because the truckers never stop and put on the hazards. It can be raining so hard you can't see and they are still going 70miles an hour. They stopped this time and that's when I started mom, jaime and steph if I am calling you at a strange hour on a strange day it's because I might be terrified :)

We had a great time the whole week, Shawn's parents met us at the house when we got in on Sunday and we had a great lunch. Then the week was in full swing, Trevor went to a summer day camp and loved it. I loved it too, there is nothing sweeter than riding in the car every morning and afternoon with a little boy that tells you he loves you to space and forever. But we were so busy I didn't get many pictures which I regret!

But I did get some at the airport, I took Trevor on his first plane ride from Dallas to Little Rock where we met up with mom and Jaime, Steph and Liv. Then Sunday Mom, Trevor and I had a great breakfast with Katie at Ozark something something.....Great chocolate chip pancakes!

Getting ready to board....

He was Mr. Cool, acted like he had been flying forever

We got to LR and had lunch with mom and the girls. Trevor and Liv are too cute together. Thank goodness for Steph and her picture taking abilities because I am constantly missing the action!

Steph capturing the moment, the kiddos were in a very serious conversation and it was the cutest.

That's my sweetheart :)
