After studying the sky for a while, I decided to take the risk. In fact, I felt quite adventurous and didn't take an umbrella. It turned out to be a very smooth shopping trip: no rain, no wind, no queues at the bakery ...
At my mother's request today's lunch was an 'assiette anglaise'. This it what it looked like. It serves two.
The ham roll on the right is bigger than the one on the left, because my mother is a big fan of 'macédoine'!
It contains several cold meat cuts: ham stuffed with a 'macedoine de légumes' salad. Two points for who knows what that means. Meat-wise there are 'filet d'anvers', 'filet de saxe' and 'pain de veau'. One point for each type of meat! They are served on a bed of lettuce leaves (three types), some tomatoes and hard boiled eggs.
Before serving, I sprinkled some Portuguese olive, freshly ground white pepper and French coarse sea salt over it. We had this summery dish with some pan-fried potatoes and a few slices of baguette.
Right now, it's raining and the forecast for tomorrow is even more rain. It does not really bother me, because I have to work - from home - although it's Sunday, because we have a big product launch on Tuesday. Wish me luck!
