au revoir mon cher Angelique
A heavy heart | Sept 28 2002 | Carlo3b

au revoir mon cher Angelique

I have the truly sad and unenviable task of reporting the loss of a gentle lamb, and fierce patriot, our own dear girl, Angelique.
Simple words cannot express the profound loss I feel. To say I have lost one of my closest and dearest friends would be to betray my own feelings, I adored this girl. Her warm sweet childlike voice, contrasted with her signature feisty repartee, and unbridled humor made her a one-of-a-kind treasure. Her combative defense of her deeply held convictions, crossed many a sword with the best of her friends including yours truly, and her few if any enemies. She was a model Mother, daughter, sister, friend, patriotic American, Franco-American and staunch defender of the principals of a Free Republic, and above all FreeRepublic itself. Angelique said what she believed, with straight talk, a savvy humor and wit, but at times with a velvet sledgehammer ....tears, that was our darling French pastry.
Pray for our sweet girl, as I will, in hopes that she has found comfort and peace in His waiting arms.
pour toujours,  mon cher Angel,  with love......... Carlo

To those of you who had the pleasure of her friendship truly enjoyed a unique experience, mixed with laughs, tears, love and fire. I can't tell you what an empty space she has left, one that will never be filled, ever. To the Freepers that have not had the pleasure, I will endeavor to share with you some of her talents and glow with banter from our cookbook threads, a treasure trove of the essence of Angelique, and many of her dearest friends, for the benefit of her beloved FreeRepublic.

I am so, so sorry to hear this most unwelcome news, carlo. Angelique was a fighter, always first to wade into the fray. A great loss for conservatism, and an even greater one for you, my friend.

May God rest her soul.

Did she pass away, or was she banned? It's hard to tell from some of the posts these days.

I remember siding with MadIvan when the two of them got into it about France vs England. Always fun to watch, she could add zest to any thread, but I didn't know her.

Freeper cookbook? No doubt, a tried and true recipe for flatulence

You sound like you are really into global warming. Please buy some Gax-X, and try to refrain from supplying the conservative folks here with your odiferous comments. If the next step is lighting a match, I suppose you are a real flamer!

I am so sorry to hear that. I am trying to remember if I have spoken with her, on FR. The name sounds somewhat familiar.

It's good that you didn't find any (Russerts)!! If you look at lowbridge's post, you'll see that they have a lot of hair and bug eyes! They are good for roasting over the coals though. Be careful, they tend to be only half-baked!!

OK! OK! I am not going to do this half-baked! I noticed you had these russerts, er russets, and I have decided to share with you my recipe. I must tell you that ,umm, the latter group, do not know how to spell potato--must be a conservative thing!

FRENCH RUSSERT-POTATO-HEAD-SALAD HOLD THE MAYO!
Ingredients
1/4 cup chicken broth
1/4 cup dry white wine
1/4 cup olive oil
4 scallions, chopped finely, parts of greens included
2 tablespoons Dijon mustard
3 tablespoons white wine vinegar
2 tablespoons drained capers

31/4 pounds of 21/2-inch-diameter red-skinned potatoes

Whisk first 7 ingredients in large bowl to blend. Season dressing to taste with salt and white pepper. (Can be prepared 1 day ahead. Cover and refrigerate.

Cook potatoes in large pot of boiling water, according to lowbridge's instructions*, until just fork tender, about 20 minutes. Drain. Return potatoes to pot. Place pot over low heat until liquid from potatoes evaporates, about 2 minutes. *

How to boil water by lowbridge:
Ingredients:
1 pot water (amount, according to your tastes)
Instructions:
Put water into empty pot.
Put pot of water on top of stove
Er, ah...

Cut warm potatoes into 1/3-inch-thick slices. Add to room temperature dressing, allowing the potatoes to absorb the dressing. Toss gently to coat. Let stand at least 1 hour at room temperature. Toss again and serve.

Presentation Put a Mr. Potato-Head in the center of the salad.

Oh, carlo..this is so awful. Angelique was a person who stood by her convictions, and yes, we crossed swords on an issue or two, but she was very much the Lady and never held a grudge with me over it...She had a very beautiful name.

So sorry, Carlo..
