So, you asked for it: Here's last weekend, in food.
Friday afternoon: Bought some British strawberries. SO good. Always sweet; never tart.
a bowl of tartiflette, which is basically potatoes, cream, bacon, cheese, and wine. Nuthin' wrong with that.
Later: Chocolate crepe. Nuthin' wrong with that, either.
Saturday's haul from the French market: A swank shopping basket; a container of olives, sun-dried tomatoes, and goat-cheese-stuffed peppers; sausage -- pork with bleu d'auvergne cheese and a peppered sausage; and 4 cheeses - a petit bleu, natural muenster, brie au poivre (with peppercorns), and pyrenees cheese.
Saturday evening at the fireworks: JT's pint of Guiness, and my Pimm's and lemonade. Pimm's is a popular gin-based alcohol here. Lemonade, it should be noted, is roughly equivalent to 7-Up. It's a fizzy lemon-lime soda, not a juice derived from lemons. KT drinks diet lemonade by the gallon.
Saturday dinner: a pork and stilton burger, with completely gratuitous mature cheddar cheese. SO good.
Sunday breakfast: see aforementioned cheese, and warm baguettes and ham and cheese fougasse.
Sunday lunch: see aforementioned sausage in baguettes.
Sunday dinner: see aforementioned burger, but switch it to lamb.
So, it was a pleasant weekend. We're still in detox mode. :)
