We love being in France, everything about it, especially the food. But every so often we start to think longingly about the things you can’t get so easily on the French side of the channel.
A full English breakfast. So we had one, with a French twist – a full Franglais breakfast perhaps.
Bacon – French, very thick and smoked from SuperU - “poitrine fumée”
Egg – free range, fried, from the village butcher
Tomatoes – tinned, French
Sausage – a chipolata also from the butcher
Baked beans – Heinz, brought from England
Potatoes – not a traditional element but they looked nice – pommes risolées, from the freezer cabinet in SuperU.
All dished up with fresh white bread from the boulangerie and real butter.
Of course, this was eaten before Nick became poorly with his tummy bug, so at least he enjoyed a few good meals on holiday !!
