what's for dinner?

tonight we're having brinner (breakfast for dinner), which is quite honestly one of my favorite meals. bacon, omelets and beignets. yes, beignets. i didn't even know what they were. i thought they were a type of doughnut from new orleans, and that's pretty much right i guess, but i had no idea what they were supposed to look like or taste like. the ones i made came from a packet that was in a new orleans gift box i got about a month ago.

after looking them up on the web i do not think what i turned out was quite right. therefore, in deference to my to do list for 2008 i think scones and beignets will be the things i try to learn to make this year.

it is supposed to get fuck-tastically cold here tonight (yeah i know, unnecessary cussing, but it amuses me) like 19 degrees.

they still look yummy and what matters is how they taste - not how they look.

scones should be pretty easy i would think. i can teach you how to make creme brulee if you want . . .

ah, i should have pointed out that those are not my beignets but a google image : ) i don't think mine puffed up like they were supposed to. i need to see a real one to know what they're supposed to look/taste like cos mine were just sort of eh, not bad but bland. like fried dough.
is creme brulee like pudding? ; )
