"That's right. Crème anglaise, mother fucker."

 or click here
__________

Karen's notes: That's the french term for what is called "custard" in the UK, which gets poured over a wide variety of desserts. In the States, I suppose some people would call it "custard", but it shouldn't be confused with frozen soft ice cream. It pretty much tastes exactly like vanilla pudding, with a thinner consistency.

I like the first comment: "Sounds like Adam combined Julia Child and Die Hard." -Kate

And then someone responded: "Or Samuel L. Jackson in 'Cakes on a Plane'."

  7. Leave it to me to take an ordinary desert phrase and turn it into something nasty...

    Seeing as Anglaise is the French word for English, this translates to "English Creme". Meaning the cream of the English (like Englishman...)

    I don't want to explain further, but I wouldn't put this context past STM either.

    Call it the icing on the cake.

    Sorry, but I had to share...

  12. I somehow can't see STM as SLJ. Now Morgan Freeman on the other hand.... though I can't think of a movie title with MF that would work.

    However - somehow I can see STM as a corruption of one of my childhood memories, Morgan Freeman as Easy Reader on The Eletric Company -

    If I was better at writing I'd rewrite the song with a bunch of STM's more popular sayings.

    "Sleep Talkin' Man, that's my name, Uh-Uh-Uh!"

  14. Creme Anglaise is a 'custard sauce,' a sauce made with cream, sugar and egg yolks, normally with vanilla. If this mixture is churn frozen it becomes ice cream...at least that's what culinary school taught me :P

    but as a patissier, I would love this on a shirt more than anything :D:D
