Monday October 4th…

Hi all!

I just finished class, and tonight was SOUFFLES!!  No pictures from tonight, it was a hectic one and souffles flatten quickly.  A goat cheese and herb souffle and a chocolate-peppermint souffle.  Can’t wait to make the latter for Christmas Dinner!  I’m also glad to learn more about souffles so I can perfect the Commander’s Palace Bread Pudding Souffle with Whiskey Sauce…(I know it rocks now, Angelique, but wait until I get my new techniques behind it!!!  You get first taste!)

The fun challenge of the evening…make creme anglaise in 15 minutes…I didn’t quite make it, but that was also because I hadn’t finished my chocolate souffle yet…but it’s all good!

I do have a new item for “Try This At Home”:

Looks good, huh?  I REALLY enjoy making eclaires and cream puffs and swans (oh my!)…  I know I annoyed Mike because for the past three days I wouldn’t stop saying “pate a choux” (pronounced pot-a-shoo).  It just sounds so cool and French to say…

On a totally separate note, I had a musing I would like to share with you:  

While eating my Bertoli four-cheese mini-ravioli with marinara sauce, I’m nostalgically taken back to my days living in New York.  Mom would always send me Spaghetti-O’s because it was my favorite!  With my refined, “urban” palate is it scary that Bertoli is the “urban” Chef Boyardee??

Wednesday night – MERINGUES!

Until next time, Happy Dreams and Sweet Thoughts!

SMOOTCH!  (from shugerlips!)
