Chicken Breasts Savoyard; lunch v dinner — 4 Comments

  1. I agree after lunch you can write off the rest of the day. It is fine when there are long summer evenings because you can lie down for half to three quarters of an hour (no longer!!) and then carry on until it is dark or nearly so. I also get asked “whats for dinner?” when I would prefer not to look at food until the next day at least! The one thing we have learnt from these long lunches/dinners is to eat slower, savour our food and enjoy the social aspect.

  2. Gill, if I could only convince myself to drink only water and skip dessert – but where’s the fun in that? I’d be happier to convince myself to nap when I got home LOL

    Zoomie, I have to work on the nap thing…. I love naps. My mother did too good of a job with that old German Work Ethic!

  3. Be still my beating heart!! That chicken looks wonderful!!

    I can never have alcohol for lunch. It’s lovely but it completely ruins the rest of the day. (Once, many years ago, we had champagne for Sunday brunch and then did the vacuuming. Vacuuming has never been so fun. But. We had to vacuum again the next day because it was clear that whoever had done it the day before didn’t really understand that vacuuming has to be done in straight consecutive lines….)

    (fingers crossed that this will appear in your comments and not be whisked away into the ether)
