I made Truffle Potato Gratin for Teacher's Day

  I made it 2 times in this day! One is for Teacher's Day and another one is for my family in dinner time. Sadly, some of my best friends didn't eat because it has been eaten by another friends and teachers, finish faster than the other foods. Well, I should have leave some for them. Maybe, I shall make some special and different for them next week. Hope they'll surprised.

  I have this, Potato Gratin, as a part of the dinner today with Fried Chicken, yeah! My family like it!

  Truffle Potato Gratin, a food originated from france, it contain potato, mushrooms, cheese, heavy cream, chicken stock, thyme, salt and pepper. All you needs is time, AN HOUR, it's easy ,actually. Better serve it when it's warm or it ain't taste as good as it was. Like slime, too soft, not even chewy.

It is how it looked like when it have been sliced out. =D
