One of those days
Okay, so now for some positives. I have a job. And a job that allows me to travel to France once a year. I am in good health (well, except for the cold). My boys are doing well in school. High school-age son's knee seems to be okay (he slipped at Senior Challenge and dislocated his left kneecap-- ouch). Feeling a bit better...
I helped Wine Authorities celebrate Birthday #3 with Prosecco and crostini from Toast.
pink-- guess who??)
Salamanzer made me laugh in his silly hat--
Gratin de Courgettes- Zucchini Gratin
(serves 2-4, if you share)
1 1/2 lbs. zucchini, washed and sliced in thin rounds
1 garlic clove, minced
2 large eggs
1 c. crème fraîche (I didn't have any so I used 1/2 c. sour cream and 1/2 c. half and half)
1/2 c. parmesan cheese
2 Tbsp. olive oil
Sea salt and freshly ground pepper to taste
Preheat the oven to 400F.
Heat the oil in a large pan. Add the zucchini and garlic and cook for about 10 minutes. Stir often enough to keep the garlic from burning.
In a medium bowl, beat the eggs, add the cream, the parmesan, the salt and pepper.
Place the zucchini in an oven proof baking dish. Pour the egg mixture over it.
Bake for 20-25 minutes or until golden brown on top.
Bon appétit, les courgettes! Et bon anniversaire, WA!
