Bastille Day Celebrations
I enjoyed my favourite french dish - salade de chevre chaud - then I tried something a little different - the steak tartare. I thought it would be too weird eating raw steak and egg, but it was actually very delicate, light and tasty. Of course a french meal with friends would be incomplete without a lovely bottle of french red, and a smooth and creamy, crispy topped brulee. I had a lovely evening, and was reminded of some wonderful meals I've shared in France over the years with great friends.
Now for a word of apology - 'je suis desole' - for my tardiness at returning messages to all you wonderful participants. It seems every time I log on to see what's happening there's another person joining our journey and some great new posts. I have been swamped with work and some of my voluntary commitments have demanded some attention at this time as well. I have been reading your blogs - love em all... I will be doing a review post this weekend - so be sure to link your comments to any one of my posts - and I will be adding the new names to my side bar soon.
For our regular visitors, you know I like to give away a prize or two - there'll be a prize for the Bastille day post that captures my attention, and another random prize for a post from this past week.
Here's something I found peaceful, interesting and very french.... let me know what you think.
