Proust Would Be Proud

Posted by Picasa

Marcel Proust would be proud: Tall Husband and I made madeleines tonight. He browned the butter as I grated the lemon rind and mixed the batter. We always use Julia Child's recipe...we've tried numerous others but find that nobody does it better than Julia. After baking them in their madeleine pans and sprinkling with powdered sugar, we ate them warm with tea.

Note: This fragrant tea is from Beadboard Upcountry in Brenham, Texas.

  1. Your photographs are so lovely and civilized! Thanks for following my blog. Today I took a few snapshots around my house (before I begin the dismantling of Christmas). You've inspired me to post a few! Warmest Holiday Wishes and I look forward to visiting your blog on a regular basis. It is simply charming!

    Looking towards 2010 with style and panache!
