Since I cannot leave anything alone, we have partnered the pralines with a turnip-comte and Benton's country ham soup. A few leaves and stems of parsley complete the dish.
Now if only Aki will give up the recipe for the praline. Currently she is claiming to have not written down a thing and that she made it up as she went along. That sounds so unlike her.
Perhaps if we beg and plead she will delve into the depths of her memory banks and release the information. If not, I may have to really bastardize the praline in hopes of her making more in my presence so I can then record her every addition.
