New Year's Eve

The oyster run on Wednesday was successful. I got to the market early, and there were no crowds. "Ça va arriver tard aujourd'hui," is what the guy said when I mentioned that there weren't many people about, predicting that the market would get more crowded later in the morning. That was fine with me.

Wild berries on the margin of the vineyard.

I made two mini-loaves of rye bread to serve with our oysters. We'll also have a Caesar-style salad to go with them. We'll finish up some walnut-raisin biscotti that I made a few days ago for dessert. Then Ken will start preparing the beans for our New Year's Day meal of cassoulet with duck confit. I'm sure he'll have some pictures of that to share on his blog.


  1. Happy New Year, Walt. Keep those close-ups coming in 2016.

  2. I have enjoyed reading your blog. We're having snails and cannette for our NYE meal. Healthy eating starts next week!!
