Bread and Butter Haiku

Chewy baguette with crispy crust.  Monforte butter, hand-churned from creme fraiche (which was made from organic cream from Mapleton’s Organic).

LUNCH.

Calls for a Haiku.

BREAD AND BUTTER

it would not be  bad

to lose skinny human friends

for fat chewy ones

Finish with a pear.

Happy New Year and well, thanks

OLD YEAR, NEW YEAR.

HAPPY NEW YEAR and a giant THANK YOU to all you people who visit my blog.   Because I can only click “LIKE” once on anything I write.

Cheese and Toast needs you and I’m grateful for your eyeballs (and mouse hand).   So eat some good stuff Saturday night.

Before I go, an end of year Haiku (reversed, 7-5-7).  I’m going rogue.

Food Metaphor

Tarte Tatin is like a pearl necklace (A Haiku)

You had me at caramelized.

Simple and elegant is what I meant about the pearl necklace in case “cheap and chipped” initially popped to mind.

I made a Tarte Tatin to serve post-BBQ on Saturday night.  It truly is one of my favourite desserts.   The apples were sticky and rich with a touch of burnt caramel bitterness.  And we loaded on big spoonfuls of real whipped cream.

I recommend making way more whipped cream than is sensible so you can eat the leftovers from the same bowl you served it to your guests in.  Meanwhile they look on aghast, wishing you would stop stuffing your face and ask if they want a coffee.

To which I say in my defense,  Isn’t a f’#@!%#  homemade pie enough????

Anyway, eh um….

TARTE TATIN IS LIKE A PEARL NECKLACE

Simple elegance

Induces feeding frenzy

My pearls are trashed
