Tea treat
Chocolate and banana treats
Rose hip jam on homemade brioche
-Freshly juiced orange
-Chicory beverage

Okay banana isn’t local, but from time to time I like to have some. Here I mixed it with some chocolate mousse to please my greedy sweet tooth of mine. As it wasn’t enough (I’m really greedy) I hopped to my cupboard and went to fetch a little treasure: our homemade rose hip jam. Did you ever do some? It starts with a walk on the hills to pick up the fruits, then it continues with two nights of cooking! But it’s worth it. Just taste it on a slice of brioche…

P.S.: Mum, here’s the chocolate mousse I was talking about the other day.

A French version is available here.

“Chinois” or custard stuffed brioche

Bento content:
-Cherries, strawberries
-Orange juice
-A slice of home-made “Chinois”.

This bento cheered me up on the this rainy morning. Mhm, waking up knowing that such a treat is waiting for you…it’s just great, you just forget the grey sky and the fact that you’re going to be stuck inside. A typical French recipe for a great breakfast. This recipe is an adaptation of my version of soft brioche where custard is added. I’ll post a photo of the soft brioche on it’s own when I’ll do one. Mhm, I just love this “Chinois” or brioche, I’m just fond of it! Hehe, and I still have some for two or three more mornings! I keep it wrapped in a towel and then in a plastic bag so that it doesn’t dry out.
