Dessert Week Rolls On: Santa Maria's Chocolate Sauce Redux

Struck by Strep! Dessert Week Continues

Dj-terrine-articleInline Santa Maria took Nina to the pediatrician for a checkup yesterday. Pinta was in tow, and, as it turns out, each of them have strep throat. That's everybody in the family but me. I'm going to get a test to see if I have it too, though I have no symptoms. Could I be the Typhoid Mary of strep? Was my fever of 104 degrees a harbinger of this outbreak? Stand by to find out.

In the meantime, I want to see if I can make this week all about desserts. To follow up on Pat's excellent pear post of yesterday, and on my post last week about the jellymongers,  I have a link to a fruit dessert that I think I'd like to try.

It comes from Edward Schneider, of the New York Times. He concocted a simple citrus terrine that's made up of grapefruit and orange segments held together in a mold by their own gelled juice. It sounds like it's packed with Vitamin C, something all of us could use in abundance. The full recipe and story are here.
