We've had the habit of having sunday night dinnews wif a gwoup of good fwiends..we altewnate in which apawtment we have it. This week it was ouw tuwn
the fiwe was blazing(it was fweezing outside) but good fwiends and good laughs wawm up a place wight away.I thought my bwuvvew Duffy was going to come, but it was too cold fow him to walk the half houw ovew
I decided I would go help Mommi since I had nothing else to do
"whatcha doing Mommi?"
"Ooh, I'd be happy to taste fow flavows"
"One of my favowites..Székely Gulyás...it's essentially powk wif souewcwaut..pawfect fow a cold day"
since the main cowuse was so pedestwian, Mommi decided to twy to make a new dessewt...something a little mowe elabowate
fiwst you toast some hazelnutses and take off theiw skin and cut them up
You whip up egg whites wif sugaw and stick them in a low tempewatoowe oven to make ma wang
"yep, it smells like it's done"
then you in foose some peaw juice wif slices of fwesh gingew
(fiwst you have to cook some peaws to make then soft)
then chop up the bestest chocolate you can find(Cay -a-boot)
and add to the peaw jouice to make a sauce
You put the whole thing togethew in layews of nuts ovew ma wang, then whipping cweam, then slices of cooked peaws, dwizzle wif chocolate and then do it all ovew again...at the end, you gwate some owange wind ovew all of it
We all had ouw dinnew in Mommi's "studio"
aftew the main stuff, the dessewt came out to ooohs and ahhhhs
ouw soopew good fwiends bwought special champagne(nowmally we just have cheepo Pwo secco and then wine, but they wanted to have this special stuff fwom Fwance to celebwate Daddi's good news
Evewyone became vewy jolly
It was time fow espwesso and a "dee Gest EEvo" (it's some hungawian stuff my Gwammpa use d to dwink ...most hoomans think it tastes like medcin, vewy bittew)
the placemats wewe ones that awe old advewtisements fow the company that has made it since the 1700s
I think Mommi is the only one who liked this..specially cause it made hew think of hew Daddi
I got one mowe lick of Schlag (whipped cweam)and the evening was ovew
I hope all of you have nice witooals wif family and fwiends too and that you had a most wondewful weekend
