This is a simple quiche.
I had a few leftover sausages from Choucroute I made the other day and some pretty orange peppers.
Since I so rarely make pasta any longer (other than lasagne), risotto and quiche are my preferred ways of using up leftovers and odd bits lurking in the fridge.
Mon mari is happy with both, fortunately.
I … Continue reading.....
One of the things I always look forward to when the cooking moves back to the kitchen is making dinner that is not based on grilling meat.

One has to make some concessions to the holidays, after all.
And then, of course, there are the do-overs.
Mon mari started laying the frame for the sub-floor this week.
See those 2 holes?
The one with the cable is the one mon mari made to attach the chandelier in … Continue reading.....
Life in France can be a challenge in August.
I've described mon mari's inability to grasp August in the past.
We've learned that one needs to plan ahead for supplies for work planned in the summer.
If one needs to order something, floor tiles from Italy, for example and one hasn't done it by the end of May, … Continue reading.....
Sedi, our little, old, German Shepherd, no longer joins us for our walks.
She gets just as wildly excited as she used to, but falls down if she's not careful.
She still spins in circles trying to get out the door, but sometimes hits her head on the frame as she dashes out.
She races to the gate, like always, … Continue reading.....
