Mushroom Stuffed with Goat Cheese; Words fail me… More Doors! — 11 Comments

  1. Oh yes please the stuff mushrooms seem just the thing to nibble while you give me the window door tour.
    Love that entry door. The balcony & that door are awesome!

  2. And the views! Even in the fog it is lovely. What color will you paint the shutters? I am enjoying this so much.

  3. Goodness, gracious. First a bathroom, now doors and windows. What next?! So glad to see so much progress. Love the view from the Juliet balcony, too.

  4. I am familiar with long phone dramas with telecom companies! Hope these delectable mushrooms help ease the stress!
    You place looks so romantic 🙂

  5. Gorgeous! We are renovating our house as well and I am enjoying reading your blog so much, because my project is not as big as yours…yet…. 😉 Thank you for sharing. We start our one and only bathroom next–good times!

  6. Oh gosh, I can’t even imagine how much work it is, but that house is going to be INCREDIBLE when you’re done! Love the door!
    And love those mushrooms too… that gooey goat cheese… yum.

  7. I’d keep the shutters for their symmetry, even if you never close them again. The Dutch door is very cool, not only attractive but functional, too. Nice. I can imagine that open to a warm summer evening as you prepare a salad dinner for your and your hard-working mari…

  8. Tanna, back in my misspent youth I made these with twice the bacon and cream cheese…
    Penny, I don’t know – there doesn’t seem to be a regional ‘color’ here. In the Vendee they were all a lovely blue.
    Lydia, and some day I might get the courage to stand on that balcony
    Joey, one would think the telecom folks would have it all figured out, wouldn’t one?
    WJ, the one and only bathroom – always a challenging task – my sympathy! And good luck, it will be over soon.
    Joanna, when… IF!
    Zoomie, the window shutters no longer fit the door – and to replace them with full size we’d have to dig out the stone… so I think they’ll go. The shutters on the main door fit inside the frame and were a real hassle – they’re gone, too.

  9. Those stuffed mushrooms look so very delicious.
    Your home is coming along, and is quite big too! Why the emphasis on security? Are there bandits in the French countryside?

  10. Natashya, no, I think it’s very safe here, and we rarely lock are doors and sleep with open windows. It does happen, though, usually near the coast during winter when houses are empty for months at a time.

  11. Drat!!! I KNEW I should have bought mushrooms today! Those look wonderful! (And we could have made them with our own yoghurt!!)
