2000~2010 Profiteroles


10~9~8~7~6~5~4~3~2~1, Happy New Year, 2000! We welcomed the new millenium in our teensy tiny little beach cottage with our friends and family.  It was a wonderful celebration and a wonderful memory to think back on. The celebration was filled with such happiness, love, and delicious food.  For dessert that evening I served Profiteroles.  It was a major hit with everyone but with one special person in particular, my brother~in~law, Rich.  Since 2000, Rich has graciously asked me to make them for him whenever the family would get together.  Horribly, I never did and to this day I am unsure why. Over the years the gracious request slowly transformed into a sarcastic running joke that was perpetuated every time I would see Rich. That was, until, yesterday.  Last night after Sunday Supper, I served Profiteroles for dessert,  just for Rich.  As I handed him his plate, I apologized profusely for making him wait ten long years for these delicious little pastry’s filled with ice cream and drizzled with hot fudge.  I also promised him that I will never do that to him again. Making the poor guy wait a ridiculously long amount of time for dessert.  Poor Rich.  Thanks for being so patient after all this time and for not thinking I was a wicked person.  I hope the Profiteroles were as scrumptious as you remembered them to be… in 2000!

    I can attest to how fantastic the profiteroles tasted as I was lucky enough to be at this dinner. Rich felt very special that night because Brandi also made him his favorite dinner of fish tacos. Brandi definitely made up for that 10 year wait.
