The Best Match

I think this is the best match I'm going to get.  I'm certainly not going to try for anything better!

The best match...

Montmorillon Brocante


Today I went to a brocante with my friend Janet.  It was in Montmorillon, a pretty town, but it wasn't actually very good. and we bought very little.  Which WAS good!

I bought a set of tiny liqueur glasses - especially to drink my Sloe Gin in...

Liqueuer glasses 1

...at a VERY petit prix - 1.50€ for all 4!  And yes, I HAVE tried them out and they are EXCELLENT!!!!!

I also bought a whole box of those teeny, tiny Bonne Maman jam jars...

..and yes - I DO have a use for them.. When I remember it...

The Story of a Quiche

Janet gave me a whole load of vegetables from her garden so I decided to make a quiche (sort of my signature dish)...

I've just dug up some of my potatoes to go with it, so I'm having a feast tonight!

There is no way I would be able to walk past a whole box of tiny jam jars either. Have fun inventing a use for them! The quiche is making my mouth water.

Ooh, I can almost taste that! I love making quiche using our fresh vegetables.

Mmmm I love quiche and homemade is even better.

Well done on getting an almost identical pair of socks. Not an easy thing to do with self striping yarns :)

Penny the socks are lovely and look like a perfect match to me!
The quiche looks delicious, nothing like the vegetable quiche I just bought from the supermarket. I bet yours tastes so much nicer too!
