Nearly two weeks since my last Meals on Heels post. What happened? Have I gone down with the ship? Not yet! I'm a strong swimmer. Meals on Heels shall resume its usual Saturday/Sunday position next week with a recipe that will put you on any guest list...as long as you bring the brie baked in puff pastry with brown sugar and pecans!
As a young girl in Belgium my school bus route always took us past a sunny restaurant on the corner. I was learning French and would try to pound out the sounds to a long and peculiar name...Le...Pain...Quo...tidien. Quotidien? What on earth did that mean? Le Pain Quotidien translates into The Daily Bread. Although at age 9 I preferred burgers to open faced tartines I still could appreciate the delectable hot chocolate found at the Belgian treasure.
My five sisters and I all enjoy food immensely. A genetic gift I suppose. I took in some hot chocolate with one of my sisters, who as you can tell, loves the process of making up her hot chocolate.
At this point I became a little dizzy. Were the concentric circles really necessary? To Jean, they were.
These gigantic crispy chocolate chip cookies would have been perfect dipping companions for the hot chocolate. Oh well, a great excuse to come back soon!
