Not really, but we aren’t going to give you a day by day report about our Lockdown in France, because nothing really happened here in the last week. I can say posting time sure came around quickly.
It is now Thursday, April 23rd, Day 38 of our lockdown in France, and today is our 26th Wedding Anniversary. It’s been raining 3 days straight, so we welcome today’s sunshine wholeheartedly. Our small celebration will include a bottle of Cremant Rose and a Tarte Tatin for dessert. We haven’t thought about dinner yet. Maybe more duck breast as it is probably the best meat we have found here.
I did color my hair again, with great success this time. I guess practice makes perfect. Now I don’t have to figure out how to get my hair done as soon as we get back to the US. As it is, we will be on two weeks of self-isolation after we return so a trip to the hairdresser isn’t in the cards anyway.
Back to the US
We are trying to plan our return to the US in May, but flights keep getting canceled so things are up in the air (Mike – Or not, get it?). We have booked a place to stay in Cupertino and now we are hoping to get there on time for our reservation.
Most days lunch is baguettes and pate, cheese, tuna, or sliced meat. Mike has taken great pleasure in evaluating every variety and style of canned Cassoulet he could find. He has tried ones with duck confit, Toulouse sausage, and goose. This is another lunchtime favorite for him.
Since nothing much has happened here this week we figured we would show you more pictures of what we have been cooking for dinner. Mostly simple food made with fresh natural ingredients.
Just so we can keep in touch, tell us what you had for dinner this week.
