Food, Glorious Food

Canelés des Bourdeaux

Picked up some canelés at La Boulange.  Frankly, I don’t even really understand what they are, other than the work of the devil and/or the angels.  Little cakes, baked until crispy and caramelized on the outside, with an interior like a cakey custard…  or a custardy cake…  Eh, who really cares?  They are freakin’ delicious and I could have easily eaten a half-dozen of them, though I demurely only ate two (actually, 1½ – I traded the other half for a bit of my friend’s bread pudding – which was just OK…)  Though I did also get a banana-caramel mini-muffin – a tender little morsel of banana-y goodness…

Eggs and Toast

Eggs-and-Toast

Of course, this (plus another corned beef sandwich from The Sentinel) meant I wasn’t so hungry later that evening, so Chris and I forewent our usual date-night dinner-out.  Instead, I whipped up some eggs-and-toast – which, if I do say so myself, were excellent (I was sooo tempted to refer them as “eggs-cellent”, but chose to exercise some restraint).  Added a bit of sautéed spinach, chives and garlic to the eggs, then topped them off with some quickly-cooked cherry tomatoes and Parmigiano. Quite the nice late night supper… Buon appetito!
