Kate's Panna Cotta~
A velvety smooth creamy sweet summer treat!
Kate was gracious enough to share..I loved the little black vanilla beans specks ..I used my home made vanilla sugar because I am afraid I had no fresh vanilla beans left.Thank goodness I had that.This way the panna cotta stays white and stays vanilla~y:)
It was so sunny ..I had it in the porch for lunch before work on Tuesday~
Thank you Kate~
I just finished this light cute book..
Next..I will reread one of my mom's favorite books~ Bonheur D'Occasion.A timeless treasure here.
Kate's Blog is named: "Serendipity".. which can mean a surprise.. a happy surprise..at times..I thought Ms. Roy's book.. in English could be called that..But it is really too fleeting and to me "Serendipity" remains,stays, lingers..is not compromised...D'Occasion means ..on occasion.. So it is ..really happiness.. On Occasion.. or in opportune moments..or as a surprise, however so fleeting for the author and her book.
It just happened that the dessert:) And the book came together on the same day and worked in my mind~
On my bookshelves..it is a favorite..w/out it's cover... along with Toi Et Moi de Paul Géraldy~..and a vintage collection of very pretty books of my mom's.
If you read descriptions of this book..you will see that many thought the same as I..albeit for "On Occasion"..I still think it's the best translation..not proper perhaps..but for someone like me...on target.
