Cheese Souffle (pg 150) is not all I expected it to be. I've never had it, and I guess I expected something more than cheesy eggs. I'm sure that this is a perfectly fine recipe, but it turns out not to be my taste. It seems like a whole lot of work for food that's not much tastier than a standard omelet. None of us ate very much of it. Matt suggested it would be better if there was a prize in the bottom of the dish. That made me laugh. We were pretty much in agreement that a quiche packs more punch for the eggy effort.
|It's pretty, at least.|
The mousse was awesome. It thickened up in the fridge, so it was denser than I expected from tasting it earlier in the day. Yum, though. It's dangerous for my waistline that I now know how to make this easy, easy dessert.
Also, gougeres have once again proven to be a miracle food. Charlie ate five or so yesterday evening, and lo and behold, he slept through the night without waking up once! I'm telling you, if you have a picky toddler, try gougeres. Seriously. Fortunately, the batter freezes well, so we can have a steady supply.
