Shrimp with Garlic and Herbs; the update — 11 Comments

  1. Wow, this has been some major job (proof is the excellent documentation). Your husband could make a fortune in the States owing to our dearth of competent DIY talent among the renovation crowd.
    “If stuff has been packed away for 3 years and not missed – does that mean one doesn’t need it?” We know a guy who has 1, 2, 5, 10 and 20-year boxes. He prioritizes his stuff by how long he thinks he’ll need to keep it. He seals up the boxes — and after 1, 2, 5 or whatever year, if he hasn’t opened that box once, he throws it away unopened.

  2. Wow Tiki…I don’t know if I could throw away stuff without at least giving it a look over. But maybe I should try…a couple of years ago I opened a box that had been following me around internationally for about 15 years and found it full of old sand filled elastic-less swimsuits from a former life in Hawaii. If I ever move again, I may adopt your friend’s method of labelling boxes…

  3. Wow What a transformation Katie ,it looks great. We have been doing a similar renovation on a much smaller scale in the Gard region, now all thats left is one bedroom to paint and the cellar to finish,in this heat we are dripping,it will be worth it.
    How is the puppy training going,I do miss my old girl but with toing and froing between UK and France its difficult to fit in the pet passport, Iwill definitely be getting another dog, maybe when we move here permanently.Good luck with the rest of your project and keep churning out the recipes, and keep us entertained with your blogs.:)) Elaine (Glassy Elaine)

  4. My husband is always wanting steak and grilled shrimp, so this recipe does come in handy. Looks delicious.
    Congrats on your home improvement so far-the after photo is awesome. have a great day.

  5. Ina, it is nice to have the outside done.
    Cindy, thanks – on both counts ;-))
    Zoomie, purely decorative…. mon mari likes the little touches LOL
    Val, we DO need the new cellar…. so much better than the underground one.
    TikiPundit, now to get the inside finished. I love that system! I’d have to look, first though which kind of defeats it LOL
    Meredith, I can’t tell you how many of those swimsuits I’ve thrown away…..
    manningroad, thanks…. it’s also tiring….
    Thanks, Elaine…. can’t wait until we have so little left to do…. It will be awhile. Puppy training is going 2 steps forward, 1 back ;-)) And thanks for the kind words…..
    Thanks, Tina… I’d be happy with steak and shrimp all the time myself…. My wallet, not so much….
    Dave, I nagged to no avail…. better late than never. Thanks!
