Choux Filled With Ice Cream

今日はランチをしっかりいただいたので、夜は軽くトーストに玉ねぎ入りのスクランブルエッグをのせたもの。その代わりというのは変ですが、デザートに昨日のフランス菓子教室で焼いたルリリューズ、カスタードが入っているので、今日中に食べてしまわないといけなかったので1つずついただいて、クリームが足りなくて余ったシューの大きなのにアイスクリームを詰めたものも半分ずついただきました。

As we had a big lunch, we had something light for an evening meal – just scrambled egg with sauteed onion on toast.  However, we did have a dessert as there were 2 Religieuses left from yesterday and they had to be eaten by the end of today as there is custard cream inside.  There was also one empty choux (I didn’t have enough cream to fill all of the ones I made yesterday) so we filled it with ice cream and had a half each.

長く保存できないお菓子を家で焼くと、食べきれないのが困っちゃいます。人様に差し上げられる出来ではないので迷ったのですが、とても食べきれないのはわかっていましたし、処分するのは忍びないと思い、昨日のうちに一番出来が良い子2つは夫にご近所様にお届けしてもらいました。見た目は悪いですが味は美味しかったので、まぁ、いいか、と。

This is the problem when you bake sweets at home, specially if they are the type that don’t keep for long, there is often too much for two of us to eat in a short time.  My Religieuses were far from good looking and I felt quite embarrased but I really didn’t want to throw them away and we knew we wouldn’t be able to eat all by the end of today, so I asked my husband to take 2 (the best 2 of course) to our neighbour because they tasted good even though they didn’t look good.
