We’re back in France, and we’re very happy about it. We’re also happy to be nominated for the Country Living Magazine “Best Food Blog.” We’re not so happy about our current Internet situation, where we’re limited to an extremely expensive and incredibly slow 3G connection. (Both of us are having AOL International flashbacks, which are not pleasant.) So while we urge you to go to CountryLiving.com and vote for our blog (every day for the next week or two please!), we must sadly inform you we may not be posting too much in the coming month.
But in the meantime, here’s a bit of strawberry parfait, made from some local-ish everbearing strawberries we bought at the nearby St. Pierre-sur-Dives market. We first made this and blogged about it years ago without the called-for cookie crumbles. The original recipe called for amaretti. We couldn’t find those here, but the local grocery’s “Italian section” had some almond biscotti, which proved to be a good substitute. With crumbled-up cookies it’s even more delicious than our first improvisation.
We’d write more, but we’re afraid TEP or Orange France will shut down if we use more bits. Sorry for the sporadic posts this coming month—stay with us and we’ll be back as soon as we return to the real Internet.
