Flying Dutchman Croque Madames

OMG!  I love you You Tube!  You make me think of things that I might not have on a regular day.  This recipe was for a savory Flying Dutchman.  I love Flying Dutchmen.  So, last night I made them for dinner for G and I.  I knew they would be terrific.  I was adding bechamel sauce, ham and an egg to each quarter.

Let me tell you how things that seem like a truly great idea can go south really, really fast.  First, bechamel sauce on a pancake is not a good plan.  In my mind, I pictured this recipe as such a winner.  The pictures on You Tube looked excellent.  I don’t know how you do it, but I picture a bite of the recipe going into my mouth.  I picture rolling it around with my tongue.  I picture swallowing said morsel and savoring it all the way down.  This did not happen!  I didn’t want to hurl, but there was no smiling either.  G was much nicer than I am.  He at least ate it; 2 bites in and I pushed the plate away.

I’m going to continue to try new recipes; why wouldn’t I?  But, I’m going to hope they turn out a lot better.  This one was a disaster.

There will be no Flying Dutchman Croque Madame pictures either.   Even the pictures turned out to be a horrible disappointment.  As a result, I’m including a picture from Friday’s Star War’s themed Pub Crawl in downtown Seattle.  I so wish I was there except for one tiny, little, itty-bitty problem; I don’t like beer.  I know, I’m even a disappointment to myself.  I do love me my Star War’s though.  I’m trying to decide if I should go to Disneyland and see the new Star War’s attraction.  I went to Disneyland once and my world was not rocked, so I really need to think this through.  I’ll keep you posted.  Until then, do not, I beg of you, try the savory Flying Dutchman Croque Madame.

and remember:  Shout out to all the girls out there trying to love themselves in a world that’s constantly telling them not to.  Big kiss, Lynn
