I'm also completely jet lagged. Or perhaps just worn out from the last few days of near constant running around, catching trains, planes and automobiles. I want nothing more than to go nowhere and do nothing. Home is such a great place for that.
Of course, I do have this blog of mine, don't I... I should post something.
So I'm gearing up to get back into the kitchen. Well mentally, you know, since I'm still lying prostrate on my sofa in a daze. I have so many things I want to recreate from my trip. Of course, I lack any fresh ingredients and I'm not ready to crawl out of my home into the bright, confusing daylight just yet. Besides, I still have at minimum of three days worth of NSHP contest pies to post and I need to photograph the Moroccan mystery prize and talk how we're going to choose the winner. After a brief rest, I'll get back into the routine of blogging and posting those.
Til then, how about a few pretty desserts from a French riad in Morocco for the vicarious foodies? Avocat en sorbet, coulis de fruits frais, brochettes de fruits, sauce caramel au sesame, nems fourrée a la rose, mousse au chocolat noir "guanaja".
Translation: Avocado sorbet with strawberry. Fruit skewers with a sesame caramel sauce. Rose water pastry cream wrapped in a spring-roll wrapper and deep fried, then drizzled with a chocolate sauce. Finally chocolate mousse, for the little one since she would survive solely on chocolate if given the opportunity.
That's my girl.
