In response to Take-out Chinese

Dear reader,

Please note, I was certainly NOT meaning to be offensive with my post, Take-out Chinese.  It has been brought to my attention that a few people, whose opinions are important to me, thought that my post was mean-spirited and that my intent was to make fun of Chinese culture.

This blog is written in the spirit of entertainment, and to tell the reader a bit about small moments in my life.  I really thought that I was making fun of David and I and how dorky we are!  I would never, ever publish something that I truly thought would offend anyone, nor did the thought even cross my mind that it could be seen as offensive.  I feel the same about the posts where I talked about Giada's head, or my chip-dip ear, or imitated a French accent.  As with those posts, I meant no ill will, bias, or racially motivated nastiness.

Please accept my apology if this blog post offended you in any way.  It was never my intent to malign anyone or any culture.  After much thought, I have decided to remove the post because it is apparently not being taken in the spirit I meant it to be.  And I really hope that Marcus and Jack never learn to read, or I am really in big trouble.

Cherry Clafoutis

If you look closely, you can see the reflected image of me taking this picture on a cherry...kind of like the BVM (or was it Jesus?) on the piece of toast!

Cherry season usually ends by the first week of August, but I found the most gorgeous bunch of sweet cherries at the grocery last week, so I decided to make a clafoutis.  I adore clafoutis aux cerises, but I haven’t made one in years, since our Le Bouchon days.

On eating alone

Salad in action

My husband is the chef, but at home, the cooking duties usually fall on me.  David does cook, too - but his summer schedule is such that if he is cooking dinner, I may have to wait until 10:00 pm to eat.  Ergo, I will cook dinner and like it, thank you very much.
