Last Sunday we were invited to the general assembly of the Club de L’Amitie Daglanaise, which incorporated the Annual General Meeting followed by a luncheon.
Each year there are celebrations and presents for any member of the Club de L’Amitie Daglanaise who’s birthday ends in a zero or a five. Our village Musketeers who are all boules champions and who have great tales to tell of their life experiences look happy indeed.
I must say that the French know how to enjoy their food, three hours of eating, drinking and being a little merry is the norm, wonderful.
Kir and bowels of snacks
Pearls of Japan carcass broth (not for me being a vegetarian) but Paul thought it was delicious
Bites of seafood (this did look good, pastry filled with sea food) Could not eat due to animal fat in the pastry so I had smoked trout with salad which was gorgeous
Supreme of guinea fowl with sauce, peas and gratin dauphinois
My main was fish cooked to perfection, with the peas and gratin dauphinois. It was so filling that I could not eat it all.
Green salad with three different cheeses
Caramel cream, raspberry tiramisu, chocolate cake, wow delicious.
All the above served with white or red wine
Our president of the Club, Lydie Pasquet.
Sucking a lemon! No just pulling a face at Paul
It was great to meet new people and to catch up with others that we have met previously at the club.
