We enjoyed another excellent meal with cousins JP and Odile last week. A feast for the eyes as well as the palate! There is just nothing better than Family and Friends and French Food!

To begin Odile presented a beautiful Saumon Terrine on a bed of Water Cress with homegrown cherry tomatoes and chives. You might be thinking this is too beautiful to eat... but it tasted even better than it looked.

Homemade aiole and mayonaise sauces were the perfect accompaniment to the delicate flavors of the terrine.

Roasted Lamb... exquisite! Green beans and Butter beans (haricot verte et haricot buerre) as typical  side dishes for lamb in this region. I almost forgot to take a photo.. apologizes for the less than tidy plate!

Cheese course. We both love the variety as well as the idea of a small delicious savory bite of cheese at the end of a meal.

Dessert, compliments of Georgette. Her famous Pomme Crumble. We can't seem to get enough of this and now I have the recipe... if you are interested leave a comment. Oh, and such sweet people, they remembered my birthday!

I am making this very soon!

Thank you for another delicious meal and your friendship, mes cousin!

Family is everything, don't you agree?

And if you have thanks for reading...

Au revior.
