Friday Flowers...

There are too many beautiful flowers to choose from so I thought that I would let you choose your own.

I am looking forward to this weekend as we have quite a bit planned.

We are going to a Vide Grenier on Sunday morning and after this we are going to our lovely friend's house for lunch.

Martine, if you are reading this, we are really looking forward to Sunday.

What are your plans for this weekend?/Que faites-vous ce week-end?

Je vous souhaite un beau week-end, plein de bonheur.......

    My weekend was today checking out an antiques fair to do on Fridays, then tomorrow a Vintage fair, and Sunday a visit to my local car boot. However we were in casualty this morning with my 80 year old mother in law who took a tumble at 4am and has had 4 stitches to a head wound, and can't be left for 48 hours! Oh well, it could have been much worse!

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

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…
