松露巧克力《聖誕甜點》Chocolate Truffles《Christmas Sweet Treats》

前幾天我正在計劃著我的聖誕購物單時, 接到一個電話, 是住在附近的羅老太太打來的。她說她的孫女兒安麗放期中假, 目前來探望並住在他們家; 小女孩說想來我家看狗兒 Josh, 羅老太問我可以帶她過來嗎?

As I was writing my Christmas shopping list the other day, I got a phone call from one of my neighbours Mrs R.  She said their grand-daughter Annie is visiting and is staying with them now during the half-term; the little girl has asked to come and see our dog Josh, Mrs R. asked if she can bring her over?

野菌香草湯和自家製烤麵包粒 Wild Mushrooms & Herbs Soup with Homemade croutons


The autumn season has only just begun but the nature around us is already changing rapidly.  Taking a walk in the woods you can see the newly ripened brambles, conkers, rose hips, hawthorns, apples and pine cones, all beautifully hanging from the trees.  Then there are the fallen leaves magically carpeting the woodland ground, with wild mushrooms peeping out playing hide and seek everywhere.

焦糖燉奶布丁 《法式甜品》 Crème Brûlée《French Style Dessert》



When eating out in a nice restaurant, we usually order a three or four course dinner or sometimes up to five or six depending on the menu.

But when entertaining at home for friends, weekend family meals or special gathering, cooking a main course with all the trimmings plus dessert is already quite enough work for a busy hostess.
