Daily feast: food, family, friends, health, work, home and all the pieces in between that make it such.
I love cooking for Sacha as well as French Husband. They are glorious feasters.
Cooking for anyone who likes to eat, not that any of us do not, but some people can make a feast out of a cracker if you know what I mean, is a true pleasure.
Homemade vegetable pesto soup. Oh isn't soup the best on a cold day? Especially a freezing day like today. Of course in the summer I will sing the praises of chilled soup, but for now...
Shallots, leeks, carrot, celery, potato, green beans and vegetable broth with pesto added at the end, then blended. Simple and delicious.
Puff pastry with a fresh milk camembert, garlic and sautéed mushrooms.
Sacha brought over an Haut Medoc wine.
Two peas in a pod.
Chelsea joins us tomorrow.
By the way, nearly a year ago I had the BRCA 1 : BRCA 2 test as I had ovarian cancer in my thirties I wanted to know if I was a genetic carrier for the sake of my children. When the test came back it took me a month to have the courage to face whatever the results may have been. When the doctor told me the test was negative I teared up. The doctor seemed surprised by my reaction and asked, "Were you worried?" I found that to be a silly question, if I weren't worried why would I have had the test? Instead of saying, "DUH!" I simply nodded yes.
Daily feast! Enjoy what you have and make the most of it.
