Culinary heaven pt II


Tonight,
at my m-i-l's insistence, we opened her Christmas present to us. Oh, the raptures; oh, the delight:


Foie gras*
Cassoulet
Homemade fig preserves
Dried sausage
Melsa (white sausage)
Homemade jamboneau (preserved ham)
3 packets of loose-leaf tea (Tea of Lords; Red Hammam Tea [with rooibos]; Geisha Flower)

*I was thrilled to pull this out of the box. I can't believe that I've actually been craving foie gras. 'Tis the season--in France, that is. Foie gras is not part of the holidays where I come from. What am I becoming?

On a non-gastronomic, but sadly humorous, note, while I was chatting with his mother, I asked  mana_trinito do a wordmap with the word "water" because it plays a central part in my next book. I didn't tell him that though and five minutes later he had come up with--among other things-- water>>rain>>roof>>Aïcha (our landlady)>>moving>>reparations...

Thanks, hon.
