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
