Lunch today was courtesy of the fish counter at SuperU where they had brilliant value spider crabs for sale.
I bought two and dressed one with mayo and piment paste some of which I ate for lunch with some of yesterday's homemade sunflower seed bread, toasted and buttered - scrummy! I haven't decided how to serve the second one yet.
www.rainbowcottagesinfrance.com has had some nice comments from friends. The guests who left this morning after a week's stay 'phoned from Rennes airport to say that Mum had left two rings behind in the bedroom. I located them and agreed to send them by registered post when I go back to England in about four weeks time for the birth of my granddaughter. The last parcel I sent from France, to my daughter, never arrived, so it seemed safer this way.
Three things I like:
1. My friend who stayed a few weeks ago has just become a Great Grandmother! Her great grandson was born this morning in St Thomas's Hospital, London. She will henceforth be known as GG!
2. My lovely - boasting I know - homemade bread. I have made loaves three times this week and they are just the best.
3. Picking and making elderflower champagne yesterday. I am taking steps to ensure it doesn't explode in the bottles this year.
