I don't want to tell you how many times we would go in the fridge and steal spoonfuls of his incredible chocolate chip mousse.
Then there were the late nights when he would feed all of us after the restaurant closed at midnight. It was a heady experience for a high school student to be sitting around the communal table enjoying what Jose whipped up for us. One big family with Brigitte at the head of the table.
One of my favorites was a ratatouille omelette. Never before and never since have I had one made quite so well.
But last night when I was walking home from work (and starving because I'd had only a few mouthfuls of lunch), I decided to do my own version with some leftover summer veggies.
I didn't have any eggplant (and didn't think to buy any).
Mine wasn't Jose's but it was pretty darn tasty.
I'll let the pictures tell the story.
|Wonderful summer vegetables. I love the colors!!!|
|Added some oregano, basil, and garlic.|
And then tonight, when I got home after a late church meeting, I had the leftover ratatouille on some leftover Italian bread with garlic and cheese.
|Sorry the picture isn't more clear. I was hungry!|
But now I want some of that heavenly chocolate mousse!
