Here's a photo - if you're wondering what's going on, pop over and read all about it at The Teapot.
Tomorrow we have a picnic and silent auction after church...so I need to make some cakes to take. I'm thinking some plain fairy cakes, to be honest, as I don't feel very inspired to do anything else!!
We were taken out for a meal on Thursday by Alison & Gérome - to say Thank You for help that Mr FD has given them with internetty things and also as a Happy Birthday to Mr FD for last week, and me, for a few weeks hence. We went to La Poste, round the corner.
I had a ballotin of chicken with a pistachio stuffing, followed by a piece of beef in a wine and shallot sauce, fried potatoes and a few veggies, cheese and then a small piece of myrtille charlotte and a small piece of fruit meringue cake. Very nice!
Now: The Giveaway!!
I only needed you to comment on the post, in order to try to win a copy of the Picnic book
There were 10 comments that I knew I could count - PomPom and Jane living beyond the Atlantic, I know I can't send it to you...I'll try to find a lighter book for readers beyond the bounds of Europe!!
The random number generator (me picking a number from the "hat") came up wth 7 - counting down the comments the 7th one was Kim Neville, so if Kim can let me know her address I will be able to send it to her. If I've not heard from her within 5 days I'll pick another number out, so get your skates on, Kim!
***Thank you for your comments on my last post when I had a Senior Moment (or possibly a slightly drunken moment!) and tried to eat cold ratatouille for my pudding! It seems I'm not the only one to do something like that!
Kezzie - did you try the chickpea stew? We didn't have it in the end as I found some Hoisin sauce that needed eating - we had duck and leeks in hoisin sauce with noodles...Yummy!
PomPom wished me fun with my line dancing...It was fun. I arrived late for the beginners' class, but they'd only just started. So I learned a dance called "Chippin' Away" - that was quite easy. Then I stayed for the next level up, the"Improvers", where they started learning a dance called "Stay, stay, stay" Oh my! That was difficult!! I have been trying to practise at home, but it refuses to stay in my head. Here is a link to a video of it: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BU84cpGlUCI. Finally we learned another called "Broken Heart" that was reasonably easy to pick up.
I've been practising all three dances, and am reasonably happy with two, but not "Stay..." I really need to put more time into that one!!
It's quite late now, so I won't tell you about food now - I had better go and make those fairy cakes! Maybe tomorrow! Maybe you will never find out what we eat this week... Who knows..
