Saturday

Recently, we had the honor of attending a little celebration for our friend William, owner of Indulge French Bistro, which was named Denver's best French restaurant by Westword Magazine this year. We have known William since my husband worked as his sous chef at the Opera House during our early days in Denver. His wife Stefanie came over from France not long after, and they now live in our neighborhood...which means Stefanie and I get to share some long walks around the lakes this year!
Stefanie sets a gorgeous table, and her surprise celebration for William was no exception. We had fruit tart, champagne, and a pairing of miniature berry and chocolate mousses.
QQ even had the honor of helping to blow out the candles....
...which always makes her night!

Oh yum, lucky you! I was just about to make some chaussons aux pommes. If I can stop mixing the apples in with my yogurt! I may have nothing left for pastry. Thanks for the little "honor". I will have to have a think about it. And I'll be very vigilant looking for your package. It's pouring with rain in L.A. don't want it to get soaked. Too sweet! Not necessary - you've been so busy!
