Ian - Well done for getting that long run done and back on track with your training.
Mowzer - That's a massive improvement on last year's time for that race!
Shades - Good job that the weather has got milder and the dreaded ice has held off. I wouldn't have thought that Brie would be a good substitute for Reblochon.. maybe Raclette if you can get hold of that instead?
On a french food note it was the "Repas des Anciens" in our village yesterday. Every year the mayor puts on a meal for all the people in the village aged 65 or over. I was roped in to help and was amazed by how much these people are capable of eating. Apologies for going wildly off subject but this menu has to be seen to be believed...
Aperitif: Soupe de Champagne (Lethal blend of Champagne, Cointreau and lemon) plus nibbles
Starter(s): Cresson soup followed by a plate of oysters, prawns and shrimps, plus deer casserole (honestly)
Redcurrant sorbet with cherry liqueur (To refresh the palate)
Main course: Fliet Mignon of pork in a mushroom gravy, purée of carrot and sweet potato plus green haricot beans and garlic
Four different cheeses (mixture of goat, sheep and cow)
Chocolate and rasperry cake
Digestif of Cognac and blackcurrant liquer
Naturally there ware all different sorts of bread served up as well as different wines with each course. Somebody got an accordéon out and thay all had a good dance as well before wobbling off home. Unbelievable!
Anyway, on a running note nothing to say..I still haven't run as my ankles are still hurting a bit and I'm not going to risk it. I hope they get better soon as I really want to go for a run now, I'm going up the walls!
