How did I get this recipe?

I recall the moment I first laid eyes on the recipe for Cats on Croissants like it was yesterday. It was a warm summer day, and I was visiting my friend Margaret's house for a little get-together. Margaret was known for her delicious and unique recipes, so I was excited to see what she had in store for us that day.

As soon as I walked into her kitchen, the most incredible aroma greeted me. Margaret was busy preparing a batch of croissants, and I could see little furry faces peeking out from underneath the dough. Intrigued, I asked her what she was making, and she simply smiled and said, "Cats on Croissants."

I must admit, I was a bit taken aback at first. Cats on Croissants? It sounded like a strange combination, but Margaret assured me that it was one of her most prized recipes. She explained that it was a family secret, passed down from her grandmother, who had learned it from a French chef many years ago.

Curious and eager to learn, I watched as Margaret deftly shaped the croissant dough around the little bundles of seasoned ground meat. She then brushed them with a mixture of egg wash and herbs before popping them into the oven to bake. The smell that wafted from the oven was heavenly, and I couldn't wait to try the finished product.

When the Cats on Croissants were finally done, Margaret served them up with a side of creamy tomato bisque. I took a bite and was instantly transported to a culinary paradise. The flaky croissant crust paired perfectly with the savory meat filling, creating a delicious and unique flavor profile that I had never experienced before.

I begged Margaret for the recipe, but she simply smiled and told me that it was a family secret. However, she did offer to teach me how to make them the next time I visited. Over the years, I became a regular visitor to Margaret's kitchen, learning all of her family's cherished recipes, including the coveted Cats on Croissants.

As I became more skilled in the kitchen, I started experimenting with the recipe, adding my own twists and flavors to make it truly my own. I shared the Cats on Croissants with my family and friends, who were all amazed by the unique and delicious dish.

One day, while browsing through an old cookbook at a flea market, I stumbled upon a recipe for Cats on Croissants that was eerily similar to Margaret's. It turns out that the recipe had originated from a renowned French chef who had shared it with a select few. I couldn't believe that I had stumbled upon the origins of the recipe that had become such a beloved staple in my kitchen.

I continued to make Cats on Croissants for years to come, passing down the recipe to my own children and grandchildren. Each time I made them, I would fondly recall the day I first learned how to make them from Margaret and the joy that they had brought to my life.

Now, as I sit in my kitchen, preparing another batch of Cats on Croissants, I can't help but feel grateful for the journey that led me to this recipe. It may have started as a simple curiosity, but it has since become a cherished tradition that I will continue to pass down for generations to come. And for that, I am truly thankful.
