Three days and just one recipe. Now this is just dismal isn’t it? I HAVE been doing some bumper days though, if I say so myself. Wednesday I took a day off, I had done six the day before and was feeling good about myself. Thursday I spent on the couch watching horror movies and drinking tea. I was ill. In the evening I made an Aïoli.
I soaked some bread in some milk (in retrospect I should have soaked it in vinegar instead) for five minutes. I then pounded it up with some garlic and egg yolk. After that, I whisked in some oil drop by drop. Then I added some lemon juice and tasted it. It tasted bitter because I used good olive oil. I went to tell my parents about this, and went back to it and in that time (I promise this is no joke) it split. Gone was the beautifully thick mayonnaise-like thing, and in its place was an ugly, bitty sauce. I really don’t see where I went wrong. This doesn’t count as a recipe, sadly.
Then today I made an awesome Provençale Potato Gratin. I fried some onions, and added some tomato to it. Then I peeled and thinly sliced some potatoes. After that, I mashed up anchovies with garlic. Put it all in a baking tray and in the onion at 180 hundo. This was good (even though I couldn’t really taste it for my blocked up nose) we had it with some breeeam (bream me up, Scotty!)
Puis aujourd’hui j’ai fait un Gratin de Pommes de Terres Provençal super bon. J’ai fait revenir des oignons dans une poêle et j’ai mis des tomates. Ensuite j’ai épluché et coupé des patates. J’ai émincé des anchois avec de l’ail. J’ai mis le tout dans un plat et AU FOUR! C’était bon (même si je ne pouvais pas vraiment y goûter a cause de mon nez bouché). On l’a mangé avec des daurades.
That’s it. I’m sorry I’ve been a bit slack lately, but I will be back on schedule tomorrow. That’s a promise. Now if you’ll excuse me, I have to knit a jumper for my turtle. See ya!
C’est tout! Je suis desolé que je me suis un peu relaché ces derniers jours, mais retour au programme normale demain. Promis. Mais maintenant, je dois tricoter un pull pour ma tortue. À plus!
