Susan just left for her weekly session of hill intervals chanting, "If it ain't rainin', it ain't trainin'". It's a fast changing Breton day here, with alternating periods of sunshine, and cold rain, but with an overall cold bite in the air.

Me, I'm still waiting for my ribs to heal after a crash 3 weeks ago, and somebody has to go to Les Caves du Corps du Garde for some bottles of wine...

Creamy Potato, Broccoli, Sausage Soup Recipe at Epicurious.com

I made this last night, and it was delicious. Used 3 kinds of fresh saussage (including a little merguez) from the traiteur instead of kielbasa. Left out or substituted some of the things we don't have in our diminished kitchen here (sour cream, horseradish, anchovy paste, fresh herbs).

Paired it with some country bread, and a 2003 Syrah (vin de pays des Côtes de Thongue). The merguez and strong broccoli taste were well up to such a "big" wine.

Heating up the left-overs for lunch now...
