So Spring/Summer busted out all over. Not a lot of BBQing this year because of the rain. I have road trip bucket list and Normandy was on it. This year, I was lucky to have the opportunity to have an extensive road trip to the D-Day Beaches, the coastal cities in the area and the general countryside. Since it was the beginning of June the flowers were in full bloom, especially the roses. Here’s some pics: Honfleur, Veules Les Roses, Dieppe, Etretat...
We were also fortunate to be in Sainte Mere Eglise and Pointe du Hoc for D-Day June 6th.
Les Jardins d’Etretat. Interesting and sort of creepy. Etretat coastline hazy but still stunning.
Diner en blanc June 3, 2018
While on the same trip to France in June, we were invited to attend the 30th anniversary of Diner en Blanc. The event theme is Everything is White. Your clothes and all accessories. You bring your own standard sized table, the tablecloth, the napkins – all white. You bring your own food - appetizers, main course, dessert, wine – no hard liquor. The couple next to us had all white food – they were committed to the concept. You are assigned to the group with leaders that escort you to the secret location and when you arrive, help your group line up the tables and get settled. I was a little nervous about attending what is basically a pop-up party for 14,000 people. I get antsy when I’m around more than 6 people. I was fascinated by how calm and orderly everyone was. The clothes were elegant and creative. The roving orchestras were fun and talented. An excellent evening to do one time only.
We were meeting a cousin for lunch in Dieppe. On the way home, we dropped by Chateau de Miromesnil (it was on the visit list). The castle interior was closed but we were lucky to visit their famous ‘potager’ (kitchen and flower garden. If you have the opportunity, it’s worth trip to see the grounds, the goats and the garden.
Veules les roses Beautiful village on the coast of Normandy France.
The Easter Feast. Menu change from leg of lamb to 6 racks of lamb and sides - sauteed potatoes, ham, mac and cheese, and tomato salad. Not shown: pear tarte, sauteed green beans, and peas with pearl onions. The table was full to bursting. The kids ate their veg without complaint.

Greetings. One minute it’s New Year’s Eve and the next we’re racing towards Easter in snow shoes. This year’s menu – we’ll do the leg of lamb (bone in), various sides and maybe an Easter Egg hunt. I’ll post those pics later.
This group begins today and ends on Wednesday. I'll try to keep up....
My mother always said, 'if you don't have something nice to say, don't say anything at all".
The silence is deafening depending on where you sit.
