Pirates of the Caribbean
A new recipe. Salmon en croute for lunch. ' The font ' , still in that post-Christmas " I've put on a kilo in weight ' routine , has a tiny slice. Angus is asked if he wants the rest. It's at times like this you miss four legged gourmands in the kitchen.
Much activity around the salle des fetes. The ladies of the Village Fleuri Committee clearing up after Saturday nights New Year festivities. We left early when Jean-Luc and his singing accordion started on the sentimental ballads . Time to go when the mayors wife , overcome by emotion and the old farmers homemade wine, could seen dabbing at her eyes with a hanky . It seems the villagers finally left in the not so early hours of Sunday morning.
Madame Bay, as guardian of the village hall kitchen , standing in the car park overseeing the tidying up. Red pantaloons, black boots, paisley turban and a voluminously frilly white blouse. Gypsy Rose Lee meets Pirates of the Caribbean. Practicality France profonde style.
