So Much Time and So Little To Do.......Strike That and Reverse It~Willy Wonka
The doomed Marie Antionette is often quoted as saying "qu'ils mangent de la brioche," which means "let them eat brioche," not "let them eat cake (gaiteau)"!~artisan bread in 5 minutes a day
Several days ago I prepared a Brioche recipe from the book Artisan Bread in Five Minutes a Day. The recipe makes four 1-lb. loaves. I finally got around to using it Friday night. This is what became of the dough:
This is what is known as Almond Brioche "Bostock". It is a combination of buttery brioche, almond cream and orange zest-infused sugar. HOLY FRICKIN FRIJOLES is all I have to say. Life is Goooooooooooooooooooooooooooooood!!!!
Then today I used another pound of the dough for this:
This is a Brioche Loaf FILLED WITH CHOCOLATE GANACHE
~As Fred Sanford would say "I'm Coming Elizabeth, I'm Coming"
I still have 1 1/2 lb. of the dough left to which I will make another "Bostock" and send it into work w/my hubster on Monday for his peeps.
Ham and Italian Bean Soup
On Friday, This:
Which in turn, became this: It was one of those DUMB ASS moments.........don't even ask. All is good though. The soup was saved. Really good too. I used a combination of both chicken and beef stock and white wine, carrot, celery, shallot, bay leaf, thyme, garlic, dried Italian beans and a spiral sliced ham. Let's just say I need a new crockpot.
Tonight was Chicken Quesadillas on the BGE
Rotisserie white wine/herb pulled chicken, roasted red/yellow/jalapeno peppers, black beans, corn, cotija and cheddar cheese on sundried tomato/spinach tortillas, topped off with shredded romaine lettuce and a homemade salsa of diced pineapple, corn and black beans tossed in a mango vinaigrette.
