The Rickety Old Farmhouse has two kitchens. A summer one on the cool ground floor and a winter one upstairs. The electrician informs us that the dishwasher in the upstairs kitchen is clinically dead. We head off in search of a replacement. Who knew there was so much technology in dishwashers ? ' The font 'reads the labels about washing cycles, energy efficiency and decibel levels. All the models on display seem to cost €1200 and have 25 cycles. Angus , who only uses one cycle, on and off , orders a replacement on the internet for a third of the price. It will be delivered on Tuesday. The firm promises to install it and remove the old machine. We shall see.
As for the Beaujolais Nouveau evening in the local restaurant ? . I'll let the menu say it all :
Plateau de charcuterie
Jambon persille a la bourguignonne
Cake aux oreilles de cochon
Joues de cochon en daube
Buffet des desserts.
Angus enjoyed the desserts. Pig ears cake! The culinary joys of life in deepest France profonde.
