choc mousse galore

I took another order for chocolate mousse, my colleague asked me to make one for her party. She’d already ordered food from various sources, but wanted a centrepiece.

Of course, I said.

So tonight I took 8x100g bars of dark toblerone, 8 egg yolks and 1 litre of whipped cream and set about making this monster. The square tray I took home was just right. I wonder how many calories is now sitting in my fridge.

I also advised her on drinks, gave her a bottle of cabernet sauvignon and passed on probably the best kept secret as far as sparkling wine is concerned — henkell trocken, in blind taste tests does just as well (sometimes even better) as Möet, at 1/3th the price, or less if you can get it at discount, like we did, we bought 2 cases 40% off regular price.

Oh, and I made egg white omelette with 8 egg whites and 2 whole eggs. Eeek. I ate a couple of mouthfuls, then decided to leave the rest for breakfast tomorrow, I wonder if it microwaves okay.
