Did I mention we are getting into easy cooking?
If mon mari doesn’t want to cook on the grill (cold rain, for example) I’ll do something simple in a skillet.
Anything with a quick pan sauce works.
I had veal but this would also be … Continue reading..... “Veal Scallops, Mushroom Pan Sauce, an interesting day”
Did I mention that mon mari bought a new gas grill?
It was time……
Our old one needed new lava rocks last year.
Gas grills no longer use lava rocks – or at least they don’t here.
So we ordered lava rocks from Amazon.de (Germany) … Continue reading..... “Asparagus Risotto with Veal, Leeks and Green Garlic; mundane news”
If, like us, there were only two of you enjoying the Braised Veal with Garlic, you have enough left over for risotto. The Garlic Sauce made a very thick, extra creamy risotto.

We had dinner in the village last night.
It was the Repas de Chasse, or hunter’s dinner. All of the villages in the area have them after hunting season is over. This is the first year that we’ve gone.

But I’ve thought that before.
The most recent was when I uploaded the photos for this update.
Photoshop very politely informed me that I had already activated the software twice, which is (apparently) my limit, so could I please deactivate one … Continue reading..... “Braised Veal with Olives and Capers”

I have concluded, in my vast and intensive study of my fellow humans, … Continue reading..... “Veal Braised in White Wine; Shopping conundrums”
I like to shop.
I don’t do it very often, and, fortunately for my wallet, I like window-shopping best.

What … Continue reading..... “Veal Saltimbocca; Shipping the shopping”
You know how some things always ‘seem like a good idea at the time’?
Tiling our kitchen counter and walls seemed like an excellent idea at the time.
And it seems like an excellent idea now that it’s done.
But, during the two weeks between … Continue reading..... “Risotto with Veal and Leeks; the Tile!”
