Random Musings from ma Cuisine

1. Always start with dessert first, I guess. At least when writing.


Settling down to savor my evening ritual of dark-chocolate mousse for dessert, I pulled the lid off and saw... Père Noël?

I had just been reading David Lebovitz' funny post about a similar occurrence. So now I'm imagining some sort of covert conspiracy by the French food industry to make people smile in the kitchen. Maybe that's the "secret" in Secret de Mousse.





2. It can be a dangerous thing to have a cute kitchen timer. Don't ask.


3. One of my favorite quick pick-up meals is a few mini-blinis topped with a little crème fraiche and saumon fumé. It's especially handy if the fridge is kind of bare and you have to run out to the neighborhood Proxi convenience store.
But I just couldn't bring myself to dine in front of Lou-Lou, for obvious reasons. Poor baby would have gone belly-up in no time, from shock.

I read that same post on Dave's blog. I like your new look and I'm thrilled about the comments. Happy New Year Polly.

Merci, Mo! Same to you. I think I figured out why my mousse came with the funny face: the date stamp on the lid. Still, it was pleasant surprise.
