I have been completely inactive during the past few weeks and I put the blame on these books 😀 ..
Ouiiiii, I have started reading novels in French!!! Yeeeeyyy! As soon as I realised I could read novels in French, I got really excited. Thanks to Kit’s aunt for giving me a kiddie book in French as a xmas present or I wouldn’t have discovered that I was already capable of reading and understanding such texts otherwise. 🙂 Feels good that I am making progress!
And while I really enjoyed reading the books I just bought and could barely put ’em down, I knew I just couldn’t spend the whole weekend with ’em.. Yesterday was my future mother-in-law’s birthday and we had lunch at restaurant Mont Vully in the “land of the three lakes”. I was so exhausted that I could hardly remember the name of the region. All I could remember was people in this region spoke both French and German.
We all had a great time and the food was delicious. I had monkfish wrapped in parma ham with mushroom risotto. Unfortunately, I have no pics to show.. For some reason, I did not feel comfortable taking photos of the food in front of my in-laws. 😀
However, the restaurant has a good view of the lake and I managed to take a photo of that.
And for today, I wanted to make beef steak paired with gratin savoyard for dinner.. we ended up eating just the steak instead!
Thanks to my durable pyrex dishes for exploding that my gratin went directly to the trash. 😦
Yeah, after having 2 of my pyrex dishes explode tonight ( the first exploded while it was in the oven, the second as soon as I took it out of the oven), I did not dare to make a
3rd attempt. I was really lucky it did not
blow up in my face nor the broken pieces of glass fell on my feet. And from now on, I swear not to use pyrex dish in the oven anymore.
