I have been working so hard...
Well here it is - the first of 3 pallets of Nitram bound for Canada. Daniel, however, is not bound for Canada.
But his better half did prepare a lovely lunch to celebrate. First a well rounded white wine (Sancerre) that reminded me of a German Rhine wine. A little fruity - I was amused by its impertinence.
A Pate de Canard - ridiculously delicious. I was quoting religion part way through my first bite.
A fish soup appeared and silence reigned the table - although the odd slurp could be heard.
Fromage? Bien sur (of course) i just learned that phrase so feel compelled to use it.
A little Belgian Endive with olive oil, dijon mustard and balsamic (for the ateries)
Accompanied by a subtle Beaujolais that kept asking to be sipped. I complied - dutifully.
Desert - d'accord! Another choice little phrase. Homemade Apple Cake with homemade custard.
Getting close to the end. But Monday, Daniel has promised a special treat at Natalie's. It took a week to reserve and takes several days to prepare... Au revoir.
