Frozen ~ Sunday Football ~ James ~ Mousse Day

Good 27º EVERYTHING frozen morning! Yikes.

Sunset last night.........
I have been working on photos for the calendars I am making this year. I have to pull teeth to get family and certain other people to send me the pictures. It is time consuming to put these together and some photos need "touching up".  So, I worked on those and paid bills yesterday. Whooppeeeee.... excitement.

National Mousse Day

Some good recipes here:

Celebrate National Mousse Day! Mousse is a divine dessert made from egg whites and cream. Did you know that “mousse” is the French word for “foam”? It’s a fitting name for this light, fluffy, and decadent confection!
Chocolate mousse was a specialty in French restaurants during the 1800s, but now it can be found in restaurants and households worldwide. Popular variations include different kinds of chocolate, nut, and fruit flavors.

Here are today’s five thing to know about Mousse:

  1. The word mousse is French and translates as “froth” or “foam.”
  2. Cold dessert mousses are often poured into decorative glasses and garnished with fruit, sweet sauces, or whipped cream.
  3. Savory mousses can be made from fish, shellfish, meat, foie gras, etc.
  4. There are three key constituents to a mousse: base, binder, and aerator.
  5. They may be hot or cold and are often squeezed through a piping bag onto some kind of platform to be used as hors d’oeuvres.
