    Default Bastille Day Tomorrow. We're having a French Feast!

    Any excuse to cook French cuisine I say...

    Tomorrow we are having French Onion Soup, Duck a l'Orange (with twice baked Gratin Dauphinois & Veg) and Creme Brulee. And besides the Oranges I have EVERYTHING in my cupboard/freezer/fridge! How awesome is that!

    So right now I have some beef bones & veg roasting for my beef stock for the soup (although I'll only need a smidge!). I have the onions caramalising in the Slow Cooker (the slow cooker is the BEST for easy peasy caramalised onions). I'll make the Dauphinois this afternoon and fridge it for a second bake tomorrow. I'll make the Brulee custards tomorrow morning so they can set. I'll put the SC on again tomorrow morning with the French Onion Soup (I like it with port, thyme, caramalised onions and a smidge of beef stock and water). So tomorrow night should be a breeze, with all I have to do is the Duck, bake the Dauphinois a second time and brown the sugar for the brulee. EASY.

    WOOT!

    Anyone else thinking about going french tomorrow?

    Oh YUM! That sounds divine. You're inspiring me... to have Creme Brulee at least

    I guess it's a good way to help teach children too about special days and other countries Have a treat and explain the origins etc....

    I was actually, but was thinking of something like crepes, nothing too elaborate because I'm spending the day getting organised to go on a trip on Friday :P I am however wishing our trip started a few days earlier
