perfect weekend...




Good morning... Monday has arrived again after a wonderful weekend of reading on a rainy Saturday, and a long, leisurely bike ride on Sunday, followed by some french country cooking Sunday evening. I finally got around to baking that oh-so-yummy tarte au citron, which thankfully, turned out perfect... and I tried out a new recipe of chicken and spinach en papillote. I swear baking chicken in parchment paper is amazing... it turned out so well!

It's all back to reality today though, with thoughts of experimenting with more french recipes tonight... we'll see how it goes...

My two go-to books:
The Country Cooking of France
The French Women Don't Get Fat Cookbook

Sounds delicious, Daniella! Mmm... and I love these pictures -- they're fabulous!

p.s I wonder if there is a different company that delivers milk, besides Dairyland?

Going to amazon right now to buy this cookbook, it looks amazing. Did you take pics of your fabulous tart?

Hope you have a wonderful week!

Sarah - I was just thinking that... i'm going to check later!

Caitlin - It's a gorgeous book, and soooo many recipes! I meant to take a few shots but forgot!... although, i have some left over (I brought most of it to work today to share)... maybe i'll take a few pics to post on IFW...

Sunday, for me, is family time. It's the day you gather with people you love around the table eating a new recipe or a traditional one....talking and enjoying the time....perfect Sunday
