Well, I haven’t visited here in a couple of weeks, and you’ve been up to all sorts of fun things! So I’ll just put all of my comments here on the latest entry:
1. My absolute favorite is the story about the elderly lady cuffing the young litterer. Ha! Good for her!
2. I’m going to have to agree with the princess, I think she *is* wise beyond her years. But certainly don’t tell her that, wouldn’t want it to go to her head.
3. I am so impressed that you were brave enough to attempt the pheasant stew, even if it was out of season. In spite of the tough meat, it sounds like it was delicious! Bring that one back out in October or November.
4. Your trip to London sounds wonderful; good for you, doing that for yourself!
5. Speaking of the princess being wise beyond her years, I love that her request from London was a delicious pastry. And when you said it wouldn’t work and she asked for the lemon curd instead, did that mean she plans to make a tarte au citron herself? I will be so impressed if that’s the case!
6. And finally, when I read that post, I happened to look at the comments, seeing that a reader said she thought Le Pain Quotidiene was only in Brussels. . .well, I had to look up their website because I had a faint memory of seeing one in Washington DC once. Assuming that it’s the same company and not a totally different franchise, the website informed me that there are outlets of LPQ in 17 countries, and 12 locations in the US alone! Could this be the same Belgian group? Talk about globalization.
Oh Kara, you are so good to read all of this and to comment as well!
1. Yes, you should meet our neighbour M – she is determined.
2. Probably too late for that. Alas.
3. Pheasant stew is being defrosted and enjoying another outing tomorrow night despite some consumer resistance.
4. I know. Very noble husband.
5. Theoretically. This has not happened in practice. She says she needs type 00 flour and I say she doesn’t and there the matter rests.
6. Yes, it’s everywhere but it is Belgian – have to say, it’s very nice in a globalised way.
