Our observations of Christmas in a small town in France are that two things are important: Church and Food.
I don't know if it is always like this or simply due to the surprisingly warm fall we've had but the flowers here have not stopped.
If he had only stopped to make his quick release be in his favourite position he would have got to the round-about a minute after the crazy speeding driver who entered the round-about without looking (or slowing or yielding).
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 CÃ´tes de Thongue). The merguez and strong broccoli taste were well up to such a "big" wine.
Heating up the left-overs for lunch now...
I just saw a TV commercial for foie gras during the morning new magazine show. Can't decide if that's more evidence of how seriously the French take food, or just something completely over the top...
