TWD- Floating Islands

This week's TWD recipe was floating islands chosen my one of my favorite food bloggers- Shari of Whisk. I have never heard of this dessert. Apparently, it is a common dessert in France. I had several funny conversations about the islands, but the funniest was tonight with my husband.

Me (reading the recipe about making the meringues): "I just don't see how this is going to work."

Brandon (very very seriously): "It's not going to work!! It's not going to work!!"

I did not know that Brandon was watching news about the stimulus package while I was in my baking world in the kitchen, but his unusually serious tone pulled me back into his world.... He thought I was chiming in to tell him that I didn't understand how the stimulus package was going to work. It was really funny.

The islands were good. Not as good as The Island on LOST, but pretty good.

Amanda, it's very possible that the stimulus package won't work as well as your islands! I thought they were tricky as all get-out. Glad you liked it.

That's funny. Sometimes my husband and I have two separate conversations at the same time.

My husband and I have separate conversations all the time too. Your islands worked well! Nice caramel

Cathy said...

Awesome! Your live reenactment just now was the best -- you and Brandon should shoot a video and post it on blogger. You get a gold star for doing the caramel.

Amanda that looks so beautiful and tasty! But I'm still glad I passed on this one. And the stimulus won't work!!!
