Here's what the Renaudière vineyard outside Saint-Aignan is looking like on these February days. I'll be going out there for a walk with the dog in just a few minutes. The weather is mild and damp at this point.
Looks like I'll spend most of the morning, after the walk, in the kitchen again. Un gratin de côtes de blettes and walnut shortbread cookies are on today's menu. We planned out the week's menus — ailes de poulet avec boulettes de courgettes, soupe à l'oignon gratinée, rôti de filet mignon de porc et patates douces cuites au four — yesterday morning.
