Re: Most hated vegetable Poll

I also love all of them, so I cannot vote. The only thing I really don't like are lentils but they are not vegs, they are pulses, aren't they?

Re: Hello from Berkshire

Thanks for the compliment. Once you have lived in France for 18+ years, your French will probably be very good too. :icon_smile: I have to admit that my written French is far from being as good as my written English and I need the spelling check big time!! I was always rubbish at school anyway with ...

I just had to look up where exactly the Sologne is :iconbiggrin: - think we passed through that area when we were heading back from hols down around the Pyrenees in the spring and had a last night in Blois. :iconbiggrin: Blois is definitely part of S...

Re: Hello from Berkshire

Aha I wondered if there was a French connection there! :iconbiggrin: Salut et bienvenue :wave: Salut et merci :icon_smile: Sologne is certainly not the most famous French place for British visitors, but as you live in Brittany you would have heard of it. Saying that a lot of Brits go on holiday in ...

Re: wierd weather

Don't talk to my husband about weather forecast. He does wonders why I bother looking at it... This week it was supposed to rain everyday, well we barely got one drop and I ended up watering my poor thirsty garden last night after days of hoping it would be done by the heavens... I would be better o...

Re: Elderberry Juice

I just had a look on my PC and I cannot find my recipe of cordial from last year. All I remember is about putting the cloves in the bottles at the end... But I am sure I have used a recipe just like the one mentioned by Millymollymandy. I don't mind if it is a bit too sweet as I tend to put lots of ...
