Oh, Shiny New Oven

 How do I love thee?  Let me count the ways:

- Chewy Oatmeal Cookies (twice! I'm a believer in freezing dough and then making each batch fresh when I want a cookie)
- Blueberry Cobbler (then Strawberry Cobbler with some leftover dough)
- Pots de Lavande (translation: little ramequins of lavender cream. Ok, actually Julien made these.  Upon my request.  Yum.)
- Baked Ham and Pineapple, Martinique-style
- An Asparagus Quiche (Very tasty*, and an old-fav I haven't made in a long time.)
- Apple Butter

And all that since Tuesday evening.

Next up on the list: Brisket.

* An American acquaintance and her husband visited us while we were living in Paris.  I made this for them and they, especially she, when on and on about how good it was.  She asked me for the recipe, but when she saw that I had torn it out of an American magazine, she didn't want it.

"It's written in English," says she when I hand her the paper.
"Um, yeah."
She shrugs and lays it on the kitchen counter. "I thought it was French."
I shake my head, bewildered. "So you don't want it?"
She wrinkles her nose, shakes her head, and walks out of the kitchen.

What a snot. I guess only a French recipe could have impressed her friends because, you know, I'm sure they would have tasted a difference. O.o

Apparently. But I hope you will agree, her snobbiness and mine have nothing in common. I'm snooty about important things like fresh ingredients.

I'll type it up scan it for you as soon as Julien gets home and tells me what he did with the installation cd for the printer/scanner.
