Demi- pension

La Chapelle d'Abondance, June 23, 2013—

We took our lunch in our room today, feeling our cheese, sausage, walnuts, and dried apricots were getting a little long in the tooth.

Dinner was another matter: a "salade Vieux Moulin," lettuce under corn kernels, cherry tomatoes, chopped celery, crumbled egg, pimento, tiny white asparagus, and tiny shrimp which I managed to sweep aside. Then a very nice suprème de pintade, after goose my favorite poultry, nicely cooked and served with a reduction heavily flavored with white pepper and tarragon. A bundle of green beans was wrapped in bacon, and a bowl of rice on the side soaked up even more of that delicious sauce.
