Pork Chops with Tomato and Sage; Heat, Glorious Heat! — 4 Comments

  1. LOL on the idea that just because you can read something in a language means you can understand it! I know *exactly* that dilemma. And have solved it the same way, by translating it to someone who can understand it. And cool you have a state-of-the-art boiler! That is amazing, considering the state of the house when you moved in!
    Yummy flavors in the recipe! We’ve just had several frosts, which we don’t normally get until into November, so I’ve had to take the rest of my tomatoes down, but the sage is still there. It’s a good thing I didn’t plant a fall garden like I intended to, or everything would have gotten killed before it really had a chance to get going. The only thing still doing well is my Siberian tomato.

  2. So glad you have heat. It will make the Winter so much more palatable. We have had to rely on a wood stove before and it can be smuggly enjoyable for about three days and then the reality of what it entails sets in. Shades of living in caveman days is one scenerio that comes to mind. I am happy you are set for the Winter. Your home is going to be so beautiful when you are finished and we know the pride of doing it yourselves.

  3. I am sure it is not as cold in France as our winters here, but it would take the edge off for sure. Turning on the stove to make delicious meals and baking is good too:D

  4. Tracy, I got lucky and found the manual in English, online! Now he can read it himself.
    Penny, it’s much more romantic as ‘auxiliary’ heat, not main, get up in the middle of the night to put wood on, heat.
    Val, thankfully, not nearly as cold. I’ve done that bit in Minnesota!
