I think I'll treat Rouen in "one photo a day" mode for a while. I guess I'm tired of futzing with the Blogger authoring tool's failures and idiosyncracies. I just want to keep it simple. I hope it doesn't get too boring. A lot of the pictures I want to post were taken during that snowy spell in February 2003 when Walt and were getting ready to sell our San Francisco house and buy the house in the Loire Valley. I was in Rouen on my way to Saint-Aignan.
This morning I'm getting ready to take my terrine or pâté de campagne out of the refrigerator. I'll take some pictures of it, and then we'll have some of it for lunch with cornichons, pain complet, and a salade verte — that's pickled gherkins, whole-wheat bread, and a lettuce salad with vinaigrette. The pâté recipe is very simple. I hope it's good. More about it tomorrow.
I totally sympathise about having to muck around with Blogger's idiosyncracies. It is getting so tedious.ReplyDelete
Any idea what the bronze couple in the forefront is supposed to mean? Just a couple of tourists visiting this beautiful city?ReplyDelete
The bronze sculpture is called Au bout de l'errance, and the artist is Dominique Denry (link to a page in French with a good explanation).Delete
I really miss your day to day food posts, although these reviews of older photos have been very enjoyable. But when you wrote about that pate, I was sorry not to see it!ReplyDelete
I miss the « old style » posts too as I find people and food more interesting than buildings. So I am looking forward to the pâté post!ReplyDelete
I'm enjoying Rouen. I've never been to France in February so the weather is interesting as well. Sorry blogger is a pill.ReplyDelete
Keep them coming! They're all a treat :)ReplyDelete
I enjoy your posts whatever they feature, Ken! Obviously, some are more interesting to me personally, than others, but as a francophile, they are all good!ReplyDelete
