Boule Meringué


Yesterday, I forgot my lunch again. And no, it wasn't on purpose.

Therefore, I found myself at the local bakery looking for quiche. They had none, so I got a tuna sandwich with eggs, tomato and lettuce on a yummy French baguette (which were gone before I got a photo). It was great, but I really had wanted quiche.

So I consoled myself with this, a chocolate meringue ball.

It's got two meringue pieces dipped in chocolate. Here, they are a light, airy type of a cookie. It's hard to describe, but meringue is not the same consistency as what we put on top of a lemon meringue pie. It's more solid, yet it melts in your mouth.

Then the two parts are joined together by a vertical layer of chocolate butter cream. Oh, yeah.

Un moment sur la lèvre, une vie entière sur les hanches.

They don't say that here in French, so it doesn't rhyme, but it's equally true...

"A moment on the lips, a lifetime on the hips."
