Vacation!

Hello Everyone! I've been vacationing this last week in Eastern Washington. The average day had a high of 99 degrees. We spent almost everyday Jet skiing on the Columbia river. It was wonderful; the wind blowing in your hair, the occasional refreshing splash, and of course the feel of flying across the water, barely skimming the top. Well, in my opinion a vacation can't be complete without some sort of culinary adventure! Boy, did I have one! I tried my first escargot!! It was delicious! These were sauteed in a scrumptious white wine and garlic sauce topped with caps. YUM! Not at all what I expected!

Also, I had heard of this charming little rustic French bakery nestled in the rolling hills of Cashmere, WA; Anjou Bakery http://www.anjoubakery.com/ . I just had to see it! So, on the last day, my brother in law took my sister and me to check it out. It was delightful! Their cinnamon rolls are actually a puff pastry in stead of a sweet dough. They were so light and melt in your mouth. Their bread pudding was to die for!! Well, despite how wonderful it was, I'm glad to be home!

Sounds scrumptious-bumpcious! I've never in my whole short life thought I'd be brave enough to try an 'Es-Cargo' dish, but after seeing this post, maybe I will. Chow for now... April H.
