Cooking in Sens Again


Home at last!  We’ll be here until the middle of July, when we go to our house in Honesdale, Pennsylvania for 2 weeks.  Then we’ll come back here until school opens. So happy 🙂


I have been cooking, but mostly cleaning.  Everything was so dusty!  I took time out on Wednesday to cook and lunch with M. Parret.  Fresh salmon from the fishmonger, pillowy white cauliflower and sweet potatoes in a creamy, cheesy bechamel sauce and fresh peas!  Old school!


For dessert, we decided to go with a fruit salad of  everything that caught our eyes in the market; melon, strawberries, peaches, apricots and cherries.


Unfortunately,  my light diffuser and potato masher are in Stuttgart, along with other items I use.  No worries, I’m happy!  Glad to see M. Parret too.

    How do you do the cauliflower sweet potato dish? looks great and what a great side dish for thanksgiving. I know it’s a long way off but I really struggle with side dishes. we all bring one to my in-laws, and whilst I try to eat healthy, their contributions tend to be variations on a starchy dish. Wow, that salmon looks beautiful.

  9. Your Fruit Salad looks delicious!
