Lalos 4

30 Nov

Another bread. Yeah, i’ll try them all since i’ve time.

Provence Herb Ciabatta is really nice. You really smell it, and it’s even better with some olive oil on it. One of my favorite with the nut one.

Bacon bread is ok, but that’s not my favorite. There isn’t enough bacon to make it taste the all bread, so it’s a light taste. On the one hand that’s nice if you want to eat it with something else, on the other hand if you eat it alone, the taste isn’t strong enough. I’m not really used to bacon bread anyway, but that’s not my favorite.

American cookies vs French ones

30 Nov

Or which of the Subway cookies or Lalos cookies go the best with hot milk.

Subway cookies have a discount after 9pm, they go from 17TWD to 10TWD. I tried the chocolateone, the raisin one and the caramel one. They’re big and thin, sweet, and melt in the hot milk.
On the other hand, the Lalos ones are smaller and thicker. It’s really different, they’re less sweet, but it didn’t taste like a normal chocolate cookie when i put it in the milk. It didn’t melt neither.

So far i must say that i prefer the Subway ones, they’re cheaper, bigger, and melt in the milk, making it the perfect confort food.

Croque-Monsieur

29 Nov

The easiest French recipe ever that reminds me childhood…

Ingredients for 1 person:
– 4 slices of loaf
– butter
– 2 slices of ham (or 4 of Taiwanese ham)
– Grated Emmental

On the first slice of loaf put a little butter, then add your ham on it, and then grated cheese. On the second slice, only use cheese and then put the second slice on the top of the first slice. Make another one (yeah, 2 croque-monsieurs for a person), and cook around 5 minutes in the oven (or what we have and they call an oven). That’s ready! It’s better with some lettuce.

Hot Violet Sweet Potato

26 Nov

That wasn’t mine, but i tried it. It’s really sweet, but also like a potato, so you don’t know if you should put it in the dessert or main dish part. I’m not really fond of it, just like Taro and sweet potato…

Jujube

26 Nov

I thought it would be like an apple, but it’s a mix between a goyava and an apple. Its name: Jujube in French. Well, you can’t have everything: being quite good, healthy, AND having a nice name. Not possible unfortunately.

Upload: names of the fruits in French

26 Nov

Bon alors, j’avais gouté des fruits sans en  connaitre leur nom, maintenant, terminé, j’ai trouvé un site très pratique où je peux tout avoir.
Donc voici les noms en français des fruits:

Les cheveux de Bouddha: pomme cannelle/atte
Le petit cannelé rouge: pomme d’eau
Noix de coco d’Alan: noix de coco du Chili/coquito
La verte: chinotto (orange amère à feuilles de myrte)
Les goyaves sont en fait des Feijoas.
Les mandarines vertes orangées sont des mandarines de Satsuma

J’ai aussi pu voir dans l’île et les marchés des cédrats main de bouddha, des ramboutans et des Marangs.

Grenada

24 Nov

First time eating a Grenada. I didn’t know if i had to remove all the seeds inside the red things, but then when i did it, it took me so long, that i just decided to eat them. I mean, nodoby would be insane enough to buy a fruit where you have to remove all the seeds like in Grenada, the product wouldn’t be sold. Nice anyway, and nice colors.
