I have to give it to Shrek for he makes delectable and to die for 'marrons chauds'.

Bravo Shrekkie :)

marrons chauds = roasted chestnuts

Shrek the pancake breaker !

Shrek cannot make pancakes to save himself if his life depended on it as evidenced by a second non-successful attempt effectuated two Sundays ago.
Donkey did not let this opportunity to humiliate Shrek of his shortcoming go to waste. Donkey punctuated this failed attempt with 'Shrek has made crêpes', 'Shrek has made crêpes once again' when he used ingredients that should have yielded pancakes according to a recipe which Fiona had meticulously google.
Chat botté was being neutral and did not add insult to injury. She kept quiet as she knows not to raise the ire or stir her father into a frenzy.
Donkey being a vociferous and at times caustic chatterbox that he is revels at the slightest chance of shredding Shrek's onion layers and giving Fiona fits of uncontrollable chuckle worthy of the tears caused by peeling of onion skins.

Shrek being the pig-headed ogre that he is insisted that the flour did not need to be sifted and that measurements were useless instead he added 'only god knows how much' amount of milk, flour, baking powder etc... This method strangely enough works marvelously when he makes crêpes but pancakes are a different sort of 'hot cake' altogether.

Introducing the Shrek family.


My hubby as Shrek
Myself as Princess Fiona
Petit Suisse as Donkey
Petite Suissesse as Chat Botté (Cat in Boots but I prefer the French synonym)

To be continued with exciting episodes.

The idea of the Shrek family came from the kids who think the personages/characters fit us like gloves or almost...
I wanted to share this amusing image with you all.
The sperm bank surely needs lots more donors so... Come and be thanked

You know you are a regular at IKEA when all the employees in the daycare at their store recognise your son and know him on a first name basis without you having opened your mouth to ask which child you are fetching.

pancakes vs crêpes

The culinary war between American food (which I for the most part admittedly dislike) and French cuisine is ON.

Could somebody kindly explain to my poor husband what the difference between a crêpe and a pancake is?

My husband's as pig-headed as a mule so he will not admit to his faux pas... n'est ce pas?
