This week, I’ve been mostly eating my anger over the hacking affair, but I also feasted on victory of good over evil on this occasion (I hope!). We like the new design, and love the changing banners. Why do I mention this?
Because the revival made me browse this blog for a while (admiring the randomly changing banners in the process), and I discovered that this week’s “This Week, I’ve Been Mostly Eating…” is post number 100 in this series. Not bad, huh?
So, what did you eat the 100th week, I hear you ask?
Lovely fillet of Venison, enjoyed with Sauce Béarnaise, roasted potatoes and green salad. Simple and so very delicious.
Potato fritters with fresh and tangy apple compote. A little late for this autumn meal, but better late than never, ey? I was also wresting juice from quinces for jelly and Quince Bread, so this meal came almost naturally.
Pot au feu aux canard – aah, a delightful discovery. A pot of feu, chiefly from lentils, fennel and coloured Swiss chard, served with tomato petals and breast of duck (I seared some and hot-smoked another). I guess a poached egg wouldn’t go amiss either. Just the right meal for the season.
Several experiments in preparation for the Christmas Menu also took place, which I do not normally reveal until Christmas Day.
