  1. Beautiful runnunculas, but how many for 21 euros? I will be picking my white peaches, that is what the birds and squirrels haven't already eaten.

  2. Donna - 5 bunches for 21 euros.
    I adore white peaches, they are my favourites as they have a different taste to the yellow ones.

    Bon week-end a toi,


  3. Wishing you a lovely weekend Leeann.
    We are kicking back in NZ - still cold and wet here so the fireplace looks pretty good!!

    I adore white peaches too - they're the original ones and have the real peach taste.

  4. Hi Leeann,

    Pretty flowers to start the weekend, thank you. We will probably be doing the same some work around the house and some shopping.

    Enjoy your weekend and good luck with the work around your home.


  5. Well, when we have children we always have parties to go...we have got 2 to go and a short trip is included on our plans. So, you see, we are gonna be kind of busy...your flowers are bright! I hope you, Fabulously French, hava a sunny weekend. Bela.

  6. My family and I are going to a huge street art fair today. The sun is already strong and it's only 10AM!
    I hope to see some beautiful things there.
    I adore those yellow/orange flowers, I could fill up my house with them!
    You always have nice pictures.

  7. Relax on Sunday and grill out. Oh and get some fresh flowers!!!!Have a great weekend!

  8. It is sooooo hot here during the day but I plan to do a little gardening in the morning and finish my "French themed" hodge podge books the rest of the day.

    Make life good - after all it's your life, I say!!

  9. Soccer's cancelled as it's wet, wet, wet. Missing a Kiwi winter???? The bonus is no standing around in the mud this morning and a whole weekend stretching ahead with nothing much we have to do. Beautiful flowers. x

French food Friday...Honey Lavender Icecream

I first tried this in Provence and loved the combination of the lavender and the honey.

For those of you that have seen the movie it's complicated you will recall that Merryl Streep made it for Steve Martin and it really looked great.

By using honey as opposed to sugar you end up with icecream that is deliciously creamy and the smoothest ice cream you've ever tasted.

Be warned, though - there is a caveat...this ice cream will not freeze as well as homemade ice cream usually does. For those of you who like your ice cream hard freeze the ice cream overnight to make it scoopable, instead of the standard two to three hours after churning

1. Bring the milk, cream, honey, and lavender to a gentle boil in a saucepan over medium-high heat.

2. Remove from the heat and let steep for 10-15 minutes. Strain and let cool a bit.

Mille mercis et bonne semaine a tous.....

French Food Friday.....

This week we are taking a break from the skinny theme, and indulging in some healthy pears with some also very healthy chocolate....

About Poires Belle Hélène

This classic French recipe were invented Paris in the 19th century and were named after an opera by Offenbach. What a romantic introduction for this French dessert par excellence, a true classic, found in at least half of the restaurants of the Hexagone. It only takes a few minutes to assemble this dish if you use ready-made ingredients; it is actually not much longer to prepare half of them from scratch (the poached pears and the melted chocolate). You can even make crème Chantilly and toasted flaked almonds for a deluxe version on very special occasions.

About Poires William liqueur

A pear flavoured liqueur. Liqueur is a class of spirit that is usually sweet and often served after dinner. It is produced by either mixing or redistilling spirits with natural ingredients such as fruits, plants, flowers, or chocolate. Sugar must be at…
