Cooking instruction summary:

InstructionsTo make the crepes in a blender, combine all of the ingredients and pulse for 10 seconds. Place the crepe batter in the refrigerator for about 30 minutes. This allows the bubbles to subside so the crepes will be less likely to tear during cooking. The batter will keep for up to 48 hours.Heat a small non-stick pan. Add butter to coat. Pour 1 ounce of batter into the center of the pan and swirl to spread evenly. Cook for 30 seconds and flip. Cook for another 10 seconds and remove to the cutting board. Lay them out flat so they can cool. Continue until all batter is gone. After they have cooled you can stack them and store in sealable plastic bags in the refrigerator for several days. Makes about 20 crepesWhile the crepe batter rests make the filling. Preheat the oven to 400 degrees.Grease a 9x13 inch pryex dish, set asideBring a large skillet to a medium-high heat. Add the ground chicken sausage to the pan and season with a good pinch of salt, pepper and crushed red pepper. Brown all over, about 7 minutes. Remove from the skillet and set aside.Back in the skillet, add a tablespoon of oil. Add the mushrooms and saut for 3 minutes, or until they start to soften. Add the garlic and a pinch of salt. Saut 30 more seconds. Add the spinach and toss to wilt, maybe 2 minutes.In a large bowl, combine the chicken suasage, spinach and mushroom mixture with the provolone, mozzarella and parsley.In the meantime, pulse the tomatoes and sun-dried tomatoes in a food processor until smooth. Transfer them to a small saucepan. Stir in the cream and lightly simmer. Season with a small pinch of salt and pepper.Pour about 1/2 cup of the creamy tomato sauce along the bottom of the baking dish.Working with one crepe at a time place 1/8 of the filling down the middle of the crepe and roll, arrange them in the dish. Repeat with seven more crepes or until the filling has all been used (I got 8 total crepes). Once all the crepes have been filled, pour a decent amount (you can decide) of the tomato sauce over the manicottis. Cover and bake 30 minutes.Let rest about 5 minutes.Serve garnished with parsley, and the remaining tomato sauce and freshly grated parmesan!

If you want to speed up the ripening of a pineapple, so that you can eat it faster, then you can do it by standing it upside down (on the leafy end).

Food Joke

What to do when your dinner is interrupted: - Ask them if they've got beer - Start speaking in tongues - Tell them that person doesn't live there anymore. Give them the number of an adult service and tell them that it is her/his new number - Tell them that you're not there right now - Ask them if they accept coupons - Start selling them something else - If someone calls soliciting donations, tell them you're poor and ask for money instead - Start preaching your religion to them - Pretend you're a recording and say "The number you have reached is not in service. Please check the number and dial again, or talk to your operator for assistance. Recording A4." Extra points for imitating the 3 rising tones at the beginning. - Try to hypnotise the telemarketer - Play a recording of a busy signal - Put on some really annoying music and put the phone up to the stereo. - Ask the telemarketer if he/she is single. Then try hitting on him/her. Be sure to mention your various medical problems, your fascination with odd smells and your shrine to the Lawrence Welk Show. - Use one of those voice changers to disguise your voice - Rap all your replies to the telemarketer's questions, especially if you're white. - Ask the TM if he/she minds if you talk to him/her on the toilet. Then take a plastic Heinz ketchup bottle and squeeze out ketchup repeatedly - Speak in ragga chant - Try to rhyme with everything the telemarketer says - Tell the TM that the person he/she is trying to reach is a victim of black magic and has been turned into a poodle. - Tell the TM that the person s/he is trying to reach has passed on, and that you're the ghost of him/her. - Sell them on the "value of high colonics". Explain your "dedication to good health" in your most convincing, passionate voice.
