Sourdough Bread #Cookthebooksclub

I’m getting in on the early(ish) side for the August/September Cook the Books Club selection, Sourdough by Robin Sloan.

The book was…shall we say…interesting?

Green Beans Gratinéed with Cheese Sauce (Haricots Verts Gratinés, à la Mornay) #FantasticalFoodFight

Well, well, well, it’s French food again today!

It’s been a French-inspired summer!  First, I made Ratatouille Bake for Bastille Day, the Fougasse for Eat the World, and now Green Beans au Gratin for Julia Child’s Birthday - this month's Fantastical Food Fight Challenge!

Last year, for Julia’s birthday, I read Julie and Julia and was tremendously disappointed (Julia Child is amazing while Julie what’s her face the blogger was insipid and annoying).  I ended up sharing a recipe for puff pastry (which doesn’t actually appear in the book) because I was so underwhelmed by the book.

Fougasse (Provençal Flatbread) #EatTheWorld

It’s already time for this month’s Eat the World Recipe challenge and holy smokes, have I been a terrible blogger!  Eek!  I slammed through my summer grad school class (with a A+… bam!), then I packed the kiddoes up and put over 2,500 miles on my car and traveled through 5 states in 2 weeks!  We had a blast, but it was certainly not conducive to blogging! 

Now that I’m back I’m helping lead Vacation Bible School and getting my library ready for the upcoming school year (did I mention that we got new carpeting, so the library had to be moved out and moved back in and now I get to completely re-envision my floor plan?  It’s super exciting but a ton of work!)

But back to the challenge!  This month’s pick, France, was chosen based off the world cup winner!
