Ivan,OH how I envy your guest and wish I could be counted among them, for I am sure a lavish culinary event will be awaiting them. Wishing you a most glorious New Year with all things bright and wondrous coming your way. – gary
Hello Gary,Thank you. Yes, we had so much to eat I am just drinking water today - guest have left today somewhat full with some cake for the journey!! I love cooking and sort of get carried away at this time of year! Wishing you a magical 2013...Ivan
Oh wouldn't it be wonderful if we could have 36 hour days - as long as we could use the extra hours to enrich our lives. I'm sure your guests are in for a delightful and delicious evening. I hope you all have fun and a very Happy New Year. I went to an exceptional exhibit on Pompeii today, and I found myself thinking of you and your Normandy kitchen; also, Jim who enjoys cooking too. Would you believe there was a 2,000 year old loaf of bread that had been carbonized and thus preserved in the eruption of Vesuvius! It was haunting! I'm going to post some pictures of things in the exhibit - hopefully they turned out because I only have a point and shoot camera, no flash allowed in the exhibit and only low lighting in the exhibit.Bon appetit ce soir!
Hello Louise,Thank you, we had a really lovely evening last night. I shall look forwards to reading your Pompeii post, that's fascinating about the loaf.Best wishes for 2013.Ivan
The table is ready! Hope your party is perfect. A very Happy New Year, Ivan.
Hope you also had a wonderful evening Terry.Best wishes for 2013.Ivan
