Day Of Food – France

posted by: Emma

In France we swapped chocolate filled mini croissants for regular ones and traded Spanish bread for baguettes and many types of cereales filled bread. Influenced by what we experienced when staying with Yves and Ingrid our cooking has become a little more French as well. This is what we ate in one day in France. Out of interest this was also the day we saw someone with a donkey crossing a river in the Cevennes a la Robert Louis Stevenson (we think they were a tourist!).


Croissants (we’re in France, you’ve got to have them…), apple and pear porridge with rhubarb jam on top.

  • Beetroot and goats cheese, my favourite! We’ve just had a Tesco express open within 150m of our local Co-op has the world gone crazy? The same irritating self checkout that makes you wait until the guy behind the counter has finished with the que of people in front of him to buy beer. You don’t know what you’re missing.

    Any ideas how I track down the leak in my birthing pool? It’s a little bigger than a bicycle tyre at 1.8m by 1.2m and dunking it in a bucket seems impractical, we have glue and patch but no idea how to locate leak, all advice welcome. Take care my lovlies. Arohanui

  • Hi Andrea

    We’re having similar trouble tracking down leaks in inflatable sleeping mats. Slashing the whole thing with water might help you find the leak – it should hiss…

    Otherwise you’ll just have to give birth very quickly? Must be super close now?
