Wildflowers in a Whole Foods Jar
I have a hard time explaining why this picture makes me laugh so hard, but it does. Sometimes I laugh at my own jokes and everyone else just looks at me funny.
But it’s something to do with Mason jars and growing up in a Georgia woods and going to Paris and having to resort to Whole Foods vanilla bean jars because I don’t HAVE any Mason jars anymore. But I also don’t have small enough vases for lilies-of-the-valley.
I guess an apple can learn to make Tarte Tatin, but it still doesn’t fall too far from the tree.
P.S. You are supposed to include the big green leaves when you cut muguets and give those muguets away to porter bonheur to smart, funny people with EXCELLENT taste in books who happen to live near you. Sébastien reminded me this for the umpteenth time AFTER I gave it away.
I guess a Southern apple can learn to make Tarte Tatin, but maybe the Tarte Tatin will still have a Southern accent.
P.P.S. I do not really know how to make Tarte Tatin. That is a metaphor. I have been concentrating my baking skills on chocolate so far in my life.
