Chicken Stew with Sherry; Menu of the Week; the BIG Day

Tomorrow is a big day, chez moi.

Last Thursday I spent the morning at the France Telecom office, arranging to get our phone connected.

I don’t actually remember doing that in the US, but it seems like it was simple – a phone call from the realtor’s office perhaps?

Here, one goes to France Telecom, armed with the ever-present ‘folder of paperwork’, stands in line, and then spends an hour or so getting all the details sorted. It may take me a bit longer with my less-than-perfect French….

In this case I had the obligatory R.I.B., or bank authorization for automatic payment; the Attestation, or proof that we owned the house; copies of my last phone bills, both mobile and fixed, to prove that I was deemed worthy of a phone; my passport and my Carte de Sejour.

Amazingly enough, this was sufficient. I must be getting the hang of this.

The result: Tomorrow we get our telephone line connected.

Next Wednesday we get the ADSL for the internet connected.

Ain’t life grand?!?

There is a light at the end of the tunnel…. And I’m praying it’s not a train….

Soon, my friends, soon..

The recipe, Chicken Stew with Sherry, has been updated, nutrition information added, and re-posted here: Chicken Stew.

One of the things I stocked up on in Andorra was sherry… Must use it before I drink it all!

In addition to the above, for the week of November 7 we have Baked Balsamic Glazed Salmon, Chicken and Broccoli Risotto, Pasta with Ham, Red Pepper and Peas, Beef and Broccoli Stir-Fry….

Become a Thyme for Cooking Subscriber and get the menu, complete recipes with meal preparation instruction, and shopping list each Thursday. (Reverse seasons available for Australia, and others in the Southern Hemisphere)

Bon Weekend!

I almost forgot… Today is a big day indeed….

I get to go to France Telecom and plead for internet hook-up…  It could be soon – fingers crossed!
