Nevrous Betty Practical!

12:16 PM

I was a nervous Betty last night! We had on our menu to prepare hollandaise sauce, ratatouille, and blanched asparagus. We have already made the ratatouille a couple weeks ago and I practiced making that over the weekend. So I mapped out my plans days ahead cause I had a hour and 30 minutes . I was on a mission to pass this practical. I started off with the Ratatouille (recipe at the bottom) since it would take the most time. The next thing was Hollandaise sauce. I had to be a sauce not like mayo. It turned out WONDERFUL!! Last thing Asparagus that was so easy. I mean very easy! Hot water season heavily with salt, throw the asparagus in for a few minutes and I was done! So I was complete with everything and had to get my hot plate and bowl out of the heater. I put my asparagus on the plate with the hollandaise sauce on the top with the tips of the asparagus showing. My garnish was grated lemon and cayenne pepper. Pure beauty!
