How about that?? Dave went out and came home with that buche. Buche schmuche it looks like cake and I am going to get some because it is not chocolate. Francoise and Heinz from Switzerland came yesterday. They have the house next door and it took 7 or 9 hours for them to drive here in their new little red Citroen C1. They are coming for lunch and Alanea is busy cooking again. I am so hungry but Dave and I are locked up in the office room. I cannot understand why Alanea does not want my help in the kitchen.
To all of our familiy and friends, Merry Christmas from southern France where there is no snow but it is chilly. Dave & Alanea had a great dinner last night that Alanea planned and prepared. Smoked salmon on blinis with Creme Fraiche, 18 Oysters (which Dave shucked without incident), scallops and shrimp on lettuce with red rice from Provence a splash of balsamic and one or 2 glasses of Champagne (when Alanea reads this it will get edited so come back later). I got smoked salmon my fave.
