Happy Halloween! My Halloween will be spent at the movie theater this afternoon with a friend and in front of the fireplace with a cup of hot tea and gingerbread cookies tonight. No fear of trick or treaters in our neighborhood as we haven’t had one since 2004. That’s fine by me because I love milky way bars, which is what I happened to purchase in case we do get a trick or treater.
I don’t know if it is my drugged haze from being medicated with pain killers (due to the car accident) or if it is the Fall weather inspiring me, but I am suddenly and overwhelmingly full of desire to make French foods. I don’t quite understand why. Last night I made the most divine Ratatouille. I made it just like it looked in the movie of the same name. I had never made it before. It was absolutely mouthwatering. If you want the recipe email me and I’ll send you the link. I can't take credit for the picture as it was from the same place I found the recipe (Smitten Kitchen
) but I have to say mine looked just as good. My next cooking adventure will be with Cassoulet I think, if I can find a good recipe. If anyone has a good recipe for Cassoulet please email it to me.
