Everyone has a different capacity for the heat.
I have yet to find a limit for heat (handful or two of habs is just fine for me). Don't even ever use gloves.

Meanwhile, rare calves' liver (grilled) last night, eggplant parmagiana (grilled, not breaded) tonight.

Spag Bolognese!!
A lovely Swiss invention!

This is what they actually make in Bologna:



(Tagliatelle al Rag¨)

No spaghetti to be seen!

True, AND strange. You can get "Spaghetti Bolognese" everywhere, but the far nicer "Spaghetti Toscana" nowhere Strangely enough I only had the "Spaghetti Milano" in 2000 in Alexandria/Egypt . They in the Montaza served it as it was the favourite of King Farouk. Who had his coastal residence there. It was a palace until 1952, it was a hotel in 1977 and it was a restaurant plus hotel in 2000.

I right today for dinner had "Berner R÷sti" with some Sambal-sauce, some vinegar, some onions, some Curry Madras, some Cumin and some Mayonnaise. And took it off when it was nicely brown. TOP delicious

Re: Tonight's dinner?

Freshly picked wild mushrooms with lardons, a splash of white wine and cream with basmati rice and salad. Raspberries from the garden with natural yogurt.

Re: Tonight's dinner?

last nights dinner:

( Hannah's Auntie and Sashi please stop reading now)

started with champagne and caviar
followed by an entrec˘te of Kobe beef served with chanterelle mushrooms and a baked potato with truffle butter.
washed down with a 1999 Pauillac

that sounds like a celebration more than dinner I can hear you saying?

it was... I officially gave notice here at my office yesterday

I'm sorry, I didn't stop reading.
Despite the poor moo cow being eaten (liked the sound of the champagne and everything after the beef though), the most upsetting part was that you are officially leaving .

Saying that, congratulations!!

I'm sure (?) that despite the fact you are leaving this fair land, you won't abandon EF and your fellow EF'ers.

Will you?

Re: Tonight's dinner?

Signing out, basket and knife at the ready - so dinner will depend on what 'shrooms I find - off to hunt and gather.

I did warn you !! ( about continuing to read )

I'm sure I'll pop back in from time to time but I expect to be kept pretty busy in retirement ... there is the lawn to be mowed, the flower bed to be weeded, walk down to the pub, walk back, have a nap ...

It's a hard life! .The pub and the napping sound particularly tough, you may need to start practising now.


To keep on topic, just a salad tonight.

This sounds delicious

It sounds delicious, but it will taste of nothing, lol. Didn't find any 'bolets' (Steinpilze). Got a basketful of very fresh 'petits gris' (little greys / cloud agarics) but I don't like them (and some people get upset stomachs. These are sold in French markets and restaurants- but illegal to sell in CH for reason above). My elderly neighbour loves them - and she was very happy, so it was a pleasure.
