Happy Easter!

I'm home doing the things that I didn't do while I was training for the marathon and while we were in Paris. Staying home feels kind of good. Especially since I have these nummy creme eggs to keep me company (I did give ONE to sweety who liked it enough to be disappointed when he found the other box I had hidden to eat all by myself later...). They're so disgustingly delicious, and how could I celebrate Easter without them? Impossible.

And since good cooking is all about NOSTALGIA, I have some Gratin Dauphinois (scalloped potatoes, sort of, but a lot more delicious) in the oven, a recipe that I got from Valérie's grandmother's recipe book. It smells like Belgium in my kitchen right now. Yum! I'll let you know how they turn out. The roast is already out on the counter.

What are you doing today?
By the way, my bones and muscles feel great one week after the marathon. I'm dying to get out there and start running again. I took the week off and now I am raring to go!!


  1. Glad you liked the eggs - Happy Easter! The only time my legs hurt was yesterday as I was walking down the steps from the highest point in Blegium. - so much to tell, so much to tell - can't wait to get home and blog a bit.

  2. BLOG NOW! Curious minds want to know. How was the soccer game, American Hooligan??

  3. P.s. The Potatoes: DELICIOUS. The roast: nothing special.

  4. There's gotta be a way for you to beam me some of those potatoes. Sounds so yummy.
    And I'm glad to hear the body feels good. I just did a 3.5 mile run today for the first time and it felt awesome. It's kind of weird having 'free time' on my hands with no training. That'll all change soon so I guess I better enjoy it.

    Laura, where are youuuu?

  5. thought of you yesterday when my mom gave me some cadbury's .....So creamy delish! And sooooo bad...Love em.
