Have you seen the movie French Kiss?
Ever since I saw it years ago, I say Fraunch instead of French. As in, "It's so very Fraunch."
obnoxious odd in the fact that I pick up weird things from movies and use them all the time.
Anyone else do this?
Half the time, no one knows what the heck I'm talking about.
Oh well, it's just another one of my quirks ;)
By the way, can you tell I just figured out how to cross out words on here? :p
Anyway, after reading a lovely post by my friend, Michael (which for some unknown reason I suddenly can't find) about a blog called Christina's Cucina, I've been following it ever since, because she makes amazing food.
I've made a few things off of her site and everything has been delicious so far. So, the other day when I needed something comforting, I remembered that she posted a yummy looking potato dish.
It's a French (Fraunch) dish called Tartiflette.
Click on the name and it will take you to the recipe and MUCH better pictures.
It was a lot easier than I thought it would be.
Here's the assembled dish ready to go in the oven:
This time I had two observers, as it went in ;)
And here it is, all bubbly and wonderful, afterwards:
It looks like I was eating alone, but I just didn't care enough at that point to get both plates in the picture.
I was hungry!
Although I did manage to make sure the pups had their dog cookies, which you can see on the left ;)
It was incredible!
Tonight we had the leftovers with a salad.
Yes, I know caesar salad is Italian, but it sounded good.
By the way, did you know that homemade croutons are super easy to make and taste much much better than store bought?
Just chop up some bread into one inch cubes (I prefer sourdough), mix it up with olive oil and spices (I use garlic powder, sea salt and pepper) and toast in the oven at 300 for 15 minutes.
Easy peasy and worth it :)
Let me know if you try the Tartiflette!
I just finished answering all your comments on my last few posts. I apologize for it taking so long, but I haven't been up to my regular self lately.
I think I'm finally kicking this thing though, so YAY :)
