As the weather gets cold now, out come the winter scents. L’ Air de Rien twice, Fourreau Noir, Perles de Lalique, fitting for an ice queen. Agent Provocateur, Ambre de Merveilles. I tested Lilliput and disliked it, plus it triggered the boyfriends asthma. Saturday I went for the peppermint candy freshness of What I did on my holidays and sunday I wore Eau Duelle.
On my plate I had split pea soup, pizza takeaway, lentil soup, pumpkin soup with ginger and Gorgonzola and a spaetzle and savoy bake with cheese.
On Saturday we got a 4 course menu from a Michelin star restaurant to finish at home ourselves. There was bread and spiced butter for starters. Graved trout with Yuzu, marinated pumpkin and lentil salad, potato pockets with truffles and beurre blanc, a Buffalo steak sous vide with gratin and truffle sauce and a chocolate Sablé with Chai latte sauce, crumbles and truffle praline. This was really fun to eat and easy to prepare.
I nearly finished my Rivermont dress, still needs some hemming, but most is done.
