jealous?

our "plan a" for saturday night was foiled when the movie we wanted to see was sold out, so i came up with a delicious plan b: dessert at pix patisserie. for some reason, i'd never been there. it was about time.

i had an amelie, with orange vanilla crème brûlée, glazed chocolate mousse, caramelized hazelnuts, praline crisp, and cointreau génoise. oh yeah. brian had the shazam! with caramel mousse, salted almonds, and chocolate almond cake. maybe we should have shared a dessert, but we both made it through our individual cakes and coffees. all together, we paid just about what you would for two tickets to a mainstream movie theatre.

next time, i'm going for the tarte manage a trois. ooh la la, indeed! because we ARE going back.

and hey, look at that! they have gift certificates!

of course, i've been doing a little of my own cooking, too.

scrambled eggs with tortilla strips. scramble tip: don't shred your cheese. chunk it. that way, you'll use less and taste it more.

wontons from a trip to fubonn. you'll hear more about this.

okay! the wontons are the easiest - they're just frozen.
