I’m guessing that most of you have heard the term “selective memory”. Well, sometimes I think that my husband has selective hearing. This week was a perfect example.
the German: What are you making from The Book this week?
me: Goat Cheese & Strawberry Tartine.
the German: Great! It’s been a while since you made a dessert.
me: It’s not a dessert. It’s a tartine. It’s a kind of open faced sandwich.
the German: Sounds weird.
… dial forward two days to last Sunday morning….
the German: What’s for breakfast?
me: Goat Cheese & Strawberry Tartine
the German (with a big smile on his face): You made a strawberry tart!?
me: No, it’s a tar-TINE. It’s a sandwich.
the German (this time without the big smile): Sounds weird.
Geesh! Tough crowd. Okay, okay, it sounds weird. But it’s also this week’s French Fridays with Dorie recipe and so that’s what we’re making!
In the end, he liked it, but probably would have preferred a strawberry tart. I, on the other hand, loved it! So tasty and SO easy. All of 4 ingredients and about as many minutes to make this one. We will be having this one again.
