Caisses de vin

je suis allé dans ma cave. Il est vrai que je n’y avait pas mis les pieds depuis fort longtemps ! 

j’ai écrasé quelques araignées. La lumière y est tamisée car l’ampoule est couverte de poussière.

Dans le fond, là-bas, il y a un tas de vieilles choses. Un vélo ayant appartenu au grand père, une pile de vieux magazines des années 60, quelques bouteilles vides, des caisses de vin, vides aussi. Et bien sûr mes précieuses bouteilles de bon vin que je garde pour les grandes occasions…

Je me demande si j’ai assez de caisses de vin vides pour faire cette super idée que j’ai trouvé sur le net 

  
Une bibliothèque me sera bien utile pour ranger ces vieux magazines…

Walk in Bordeaux

Nous aimons les douces lumières de la ville le matin, lorsque le soleil est encore pâle et que nous commençons à peine à sentir la douce caresse de ses rayons sur la peau…🌞

 We like the soft lights of the city in the morning, when the sun is still pale and that we are just beginning to feel the gentle caress of his rays on the skin …. 

Et un petit coup de coeur pour les salades du restaurant Totto (place du parlement) qui sont absolument délicieuses ! Il n’y en a que 4, mais un vrai plaisir des papilles lorsqu’il fait chaud.

And a little crush on the restaurant’s salad Totto ( Parliament Square ) which are absolutely delicious ! There are only 4, but a true taste buds in hot weather

You only need three ingredients to make this fabulous snack!

And I say snack, because it is totally acceptable to make it for yourself this afternoon when your stomach starts to rumble.

You know why?

Because I said so.

It also obviously makes a great appetizer for parties. The key is to consume it as quickly as possible. Trust me… it isn’t challenging.

And it is super simple to make. All you must do is chop the ingredients and combine them like so.

Then throw the dish in the oven and let the cheese work it’s magic.

It will look like this. And then you might die. But that’s okay, because having this as your final meal totally makes sense.

It took all of my restraint to not go at the dip with just a spoon. I was so tempted.

I might have taken a little spoonful of a taste.

There really is nothing better than a spoonful of bubbly, golden cheese.

Hot Caprese Dip

serves 2-4

10 ounces fresh mozzarella, chopped into cubes

2 roma tomatoes, seeded and juiced

3 tablespoons freshly chopped basil (or about 1 tablespoon dried) + more for garnish

Preheat oven to 375.

Make sure tomatoes have as much juiced squeezed out of them as possible – this will prevent the dip from becoming soupy. In a small baking dish, combine chopped cheese, tomatoes and basil and mix. Bake for 15 minutes, then broil for 2 minutes so cheese becomes bubbly and golden. Serve immediately with crackers or melba toasts.

Note: dip may appear “watery” which is why it is VERY important to get as much moisture out of the tomatoes as possible. Also make sure dip is consumed immediately, as the longer it sits, the more juice that develops. Don’t worry if there is a little bit of juice – it is still delicious!

Just try to stay away.
