A beautiful picture as this one is worth a thousand words. This could be a modern water color depicting the Middle Ages.This street is typical of the streets in big cities in the Middle Ages. And shows where the expression Tenir le haut du pavé comes from.Hope the fact you don’t have time to blog this morning is good news!
No bad news here to report, I'm glad to say. I'm making a terrine de campagne — in other words, pâté de campagne (filet mignon de porc, épaule de veau, etc.) cooked in a terrine.
oooh, pâté de campagne... yumm. I hope you'll share photos?Great street photo :)
Yes, I'll take photos of the finished product.
A perfect photo - so welcoming with that warm ochre lighting - and the perspective really makes me feel like I am there. Is that snow on the rooftops near the curve in the street?
Yes, that's snow. It was early February.
I remember streets like this from my first visit to France. They drained from the middle like this one. I bet your terrine will be delicious!
I of course hope that the terrine will be good. I let it cool down for two or three hours after I tested it using an instant-read thermometer and saw that it was completely done. Now it's in the fridge until we cut into it at lunchtime tomorrow. It's really just a meat loaf, but with pork and veal instead of beef... and no ketchup. I also put Armagnac and pecans in it.
Sounds better than meatloaf to me.
Hilarious that you noted "and no ketchup." Armagnac and pecans would be expected!!!Will anxiously await your photos, Ken! I've never tempted a terrine.
The street looks beautiful, but also gives an ides of what your stay in Rouen must have felt like if you were wondering these narrow streets in le brouillard. Quite different from NC!And chm, I had to google Tenir le haut du pavé. It has an interesting origin!
A Street like you are showing today makes me smile - really BIG! That's the reason I sooooo love to travel in Europe! One cannot stop going down a street like this, or in this case, go up a street like this to see where it leads.
What's on your mind? Qu'avez-vous à me dire ?
