We had a light dusting of snow yesterday... most strange for this time of year!
These are the mushrooms I bought from the market this week - chestnut mushrooms, chanterelles and ceps.
Fried off in butter separately as the chanterelles need less time. I simply served them with a bowl of tagliatelles in a cream sauce. This way, you can choose what you want and enjoy the slightly different tastes.
The perfect Christmas card!ReplyDelete
Isn't it just, bit early though!! Be safe in New York! We are thinking of you...
Very strange, indeed! The mushrooms look good!ReplyDelete
Thanks, they are all the mushrooms available at the moment, need more rain! As for the snow, it made the French news!!
Snow! So early! We didn't have any in Leeds but the train to London travelled through snowy fields - very odd for October. Your mushrooms look divine. I adore mushrooms but John does not share my love (so wrong, I know!) so I hardly ever cook them. I always order them in restaurants though!ReplyDelete
Thanks, I saw your snow on your blog, strange no! It's a good excuse to go out and eat... I need mushrooms! (lol!)
Beautiful photos of the snow. What are those pollarded trees? A fruit tree? I like how they look, Ivan with that large trunk.ReplyDelete
I like mushrooms and these look delicious.
Thanks, the trees are lime trees (Tilia) that we have their head's chopped every two years (we are in France LOL...). There are 31 of them (over 80 years old) and they are our guardian-soldiers watching over the house!
Aha! So I'm not the only one with snow.ReplyDelete
The mushrooms look sooo good.
Thank you, It was wimpy snow as it had all melted by the afternoon!! My pug was wanting a hot blanket like your puppy, but inside and next to the lit fire too...
Another simple yet elegant dinner. I would love to eat at your house! I am jealous of your snow. Unlike most people, I love the snow! I love to play in it with the hounds and then cuddle by the fire with a nice glass of wine and watch the snow fall silently.ReplyDelete
Thank you, that's very kind. I am also a fan of the 'silence' when the snow falls. When we spend Christmas in Canada, I am as excited by the snow as the children are!
