More food!

Our Sunday lunch with friends last week was divine. They did a starter where you unwrap a Camembert cheese and put it in an ovenproof dish, crush a clove of garlic and rub it over the cheese, then pour honey over the cheese and put it in a pre-heated oven for 15 mins. OMG! It is delicious. You scoop it up with a spoon and smear it on lovelt fresh bread. They said that they often serve it as a combined cheese and dessert course, it would be great with some fresh fruit with it as well. Try it! Main course was a lovely Thai curry and rice and dessert was a chocolate fondant. We had a great afternoon putting the world to rights.

This week has been a bit 'off' due to me picking up a tummy bug from somewhere, we call it a 'gastro' in France. It couldn't have been the food at the weekend (other than it all being very rich) as nobody else has been ill. I spent all day Monday in bed, apart from the times I was rushing to the loo. Misty slept with me all day, which as you can imagine I loved! At least I have stopped being sick now, and just feel very tired. Mind you, it has made a good start to my new year diet, and I don't feel able to eat all those things I love - cheese, cheese and cheese!

Thank you all for your lovely birthday wishes, OH made sure I had a super time.



Oh I hope you get over the bug poor you.
Im going to try that cheese thingy sounds gorgeous

God no - not a camembert with garlic and honey.....YUK big time! I'm heaving just thinking about it. But a camembert with garlic and white wine melted with french bread - divine!

Hope you feel better soon.

Hi Andrea and SITH, it really is delish! Still got no appetite, I hope my stomach has shrunk a bit and gets used to eating less food!

Being a celiac I have to refuse the bread but the cheese sounds lovely.

Get better soon girl but enjoy Misty as much as you can!

Oh dear....... sorry to hear you have been sick. Last time I was affected like that was about a year ago.
Too much cheese (which I love)..... can be very rich, but with honey...... no I think that would cause a problem!!
