Clafoutis definition: Baked French dessert of fruit, traditionally black cherries, arranged in a buttered dish, and covered with a thick flan-like batter. The Clafoutis is dusted with powdered sugar, served warm and sometimes served with cream.
Gesundheit: used to wish good health, especially to one who has just sneezed.
I have made Clafoutis before, but with peaches or berries, which I guess isn’t really, technically, a clafoutis. I also read somewhere that traditional Clafoutis are made with the pits still in the cherries. When I discovered that we had no cherry pitter in the house and I couldn’t find one in a couple of stores I looked in, I felt like leaving the pits in.
A family that we know very well visited the East Coast this last month. They took lots of pictures of their trip which we enjoyed seeing on Facebook. They did make a stop in Maine and began showing photos of lobster rolls. I couldn’t get my mind off lobster rolls (especially after seeing so many pictures), so I thought we should make them with our own spin.
Having dinner on the “terrace” sounds so classy and upscale. It was actually in the backyard, but it seems like a terrace, to me.
