Sweet pots cooked in a high oven in a bubbly bed of duck fat. The Entrecôte was grilled on the hob in duck fat with some salt and pepper. I let it cook a bit too far, but still most enjoyable for this Tuesday in September. Autumn seems to be approaching.

For It Is Time

Time to make your vanilla extract. The baking season approaches. Also, a great Christmas gift that beats the heck out of a mug loaded with jellybeans.

Here’s how:
– Chuck two vanilla beans into some alcohol
– Place into a dark cupboard you rarely open, like your potential
– Once a week give it a whirl
– After three months, voila

Above is vanilla beans with Armagnac

… you had me at Armagnac.

Tijuana Sombrero

What’s a Tijuana Sombrero?  OoOOoh, don’t ask, let me show you.

Stick a fried egg on a Croque Monsieur and you get a Croque Madame.  It is said that the fried egg looks like a woman’s hat.  This is my little Mexican take on a Croque Madame.

Stick a fried egg that you formed into a Sombrero on a burger with cheese, fresh salsa, some creme fraiche and a bit of lettuce and you get an Amiga Mexicana.  Fun for a girl or a boy.  Though, I think Tijuana Sombrero will win on the naming of this dish.

Minty did Carrot Henge.

Z ate ham rolls and yelled at Minty for taking her photo.  “NO PHOTO!  grrrrr! ”
