161/365 part 2, originally uploaded by Laquet.

Saturday night was Mechoui night. Here are Simon and my dad tucking in to course number 2. The locals/villagers get together and talk and eat and drink and dance and sing and generally celebrate summer. Much red wine was consumed. We rolled home about 2am. The music didn't stop 'til 4!! I had "a bit of a head" on Sunday morning.
Snipped and snapped on my Nokia E71.


Melon au porto
Charcuterie - pâté de campagne, Bayonne ham and Rosette de Lyon
Lamb with sauté potatoes*
Apple / Plum Flan
Du café

* The sauté potatoes had been tossed (whilst still sizzling) with fresh persillade - finely minced garlic and flat leaf parsley - the heat of the potatoes had cooked the garlic. Writing about the mixture of flavours is making me dribble onto the keys.

You have just caused me to dribble very unattractively all over my keyboard!!!
Of course, I'm not green. Perish the thought!
