It is definitely good to be cooking with all of the Doristas again.
These past months have been a bit of a challenge, but we have so much to
be thankful for. Jim has come through this ordeal with flying colors and
a little bit thinner. We are now planning to celebrate our 60th wedding
anniversary with family and friends in October. Tricia, Jim and I would
like to thank everyone for all of their prayers and good wishes. It's a
wonderful feeling to have such good friends at a time like this.
Thank you all.
This week's recipe was an absolute delight and certainly one of the easiest.
I love poached eggs and never have a problem preparing them, but
I wasn't sure if I could eat these coddled eggs.
I set the timer for 5 minutes, and then set it again, the result was
perfect hard boiled eggs with pate. They were delicious and I will surely
do this again, but next time I will trust Dorie's judgment on timing.
It has been a long few months and I echo Nana's sentiments
about missing our FFWD, the recipes, the advice from Dorie
and of course, our Doristas. We are FINALLY back because I got a
stove installed last week. Not replaced, but installed for the first time-
which you can imagine impacted our participating in FFWD.
I have had an adventure in moving but I am still nearby to Nana.
Just not next door, so as Betsy suggested, I will indeed need to step
up my game regarding ingredients and prep. (though we all know
she will likely drive those little tupperware containers right on over too.......)
Now for the recipe.
I used organic eggs and opted out of the truffles.
I substituted a terrine that I treated my hubby to last
year as a souvenir of my trip to France with Nana.
I chose the pork with chives and it was lovely.

purchased it in, the store itself (Comtesse Du Barry), and Blois'
weekly market that we enjoyed visiting. Hmmm, now that I think
about it we could both use another vacation...:)

Back to the recipe.
I have no idea where my ramekins are since we still have
4 large "PODS" and a moving truck of stuff to get through.
Luckily I did come across heart molds from our coeur a la creme
|My old painting in it's new house-|
adventure. A bit of tin foil saved the day for the holes in the
molds but aside from that, the recipe could not be easier.
I had all 3 taste testers on deck and they all raved.
And that is not because they are tired of grilled food.
Now, to get a kitchen sink installed.....
It is good to be back indeed.
Happiest of French Fridays to all ~
