Charcuterie Salad

Jade has every Wednesday off from school.   I also decided to take a break from cooking today.   We did go shopping and managed to purchase an obscene amount of food for future preparation, including a charcuterie salad to share for lunch.  The salad was good with cold chicken, rare roast beef, smoked ham, pork roast, tomatoes, olives, cornichons and lettuce accompanied by a baguette and butter.   Of course I took some pictures!  It was a cooking break, not a photography break!

Italian red grapes and Bourgogne Chablis.

  1. You are rather addicted to photography aren’t you! I love cured meat – Spanish meat is my favourite. Delicious. Then again I’ve not had much experience with French cured meat.

    • I am. Cooking comes easy for me, photography is the challenge. I think that for cured meats Italian and German are better than French but the French is also good. I’ve had some Spanish sausages but not enough to have an opinion.

    i have to admit that cold meats and a baguette is just divine and that chablis. I made some sour dough baguettes last night and John sweetly told me that maybe I could offer them to my dad as oars for the row boat. Of course i looked hurt but actually he may have a point. c

  3. We do this for lunch a lot, especially in the summer or if we’re having a big meal that night.

    Learning not to read your blog just before lunch. It increases the appetite too, too much.
