Warming up on a cold morning....

Doesn't this make you feel warm? It should! This morning, Alex had to scrape the frost off the windshield... Mon dieu! And it was -2 C at around 10 a.m.
Nothing much to report, except that we got a LOT of shopping done this morning and boy is our fridge FULL now!

Hey Anne,

Glad it made you warm... and laugh!! hehe!!

Dorkys... Hey there! Thanks for visiting and for leaving a comment! I love your blog! Staying as warm as possible but it's difficult when I go outdoors! A scarf and gloves certainly help!! Take care!!

I enjoyed looking at your post about your New Year’s dinner (Réveillon.) I like le foie gras, but I never tried it with something sweet – I don’t think I would like it that way. I usually like it with a small piece of seigle bread and some cornichons. As for the dessert my mother called it “oeuf à la neige” I used to make it. You make your egg whites very stiff and you use your egg yolks to make a custard. You keep the custard warm in a saucepan and with a big spoon you put your egg whites on top for a little while to cook them. Then you place everything in the fridge to cool off. I wish you a wonderful 2010 with lots of fun, happiness and luck.

Hi there Vagabonde!

Thanks for stopping by and for leaving your comment! Happy New Year to you!
You are right about the dessert.. that's the name in French... It's got an interesting texture, that's for sure!
A lot of people may eat foie gras with some confiture, but I think many people eat it plain or with some cornichons, too... Anyhow... that's it for me, been there, done that.. and didn't like it!! hehe!
I wonder what my mom-in-law will say since I tried it without her and she's been trying to get me to try it for over three years now!!
Take care,

Yikes, it's starting to look cold here too. New Year's Eve was glorious and almost warm, then it started pouring, now it is down below freezing again. Oh well, we are in the dead of winter!

Bon dimanche!
