It was actually quite a while since I had a weekend entirely without the kids but last weekend was such a weekend. My ex is on holiday so she has been having the kids all of last week including the weekend.
Thus I was “available” so to say. Something that my lady-friend was quick to take advantage of. She came over from Geneva on the Saturday afternoon and we spent some time together taking a little walk in the village, watching movies and of course some dining. I prepared Coquelets remplis des herbes avec Petit Pois aux Romarin et Lardons.
That is a recipe that I make now and then. It is a good recipe because you can vary the herb filling and even the kind of bird you are using, to your taste at the moment. I have made it with small chicken, quails, pigeons and partridge.
In the morning next day we had a fairly decent English breakfast, we had some nice time together and finished of with a lunch of Gambas grillée sur un lit de salade, huile de Truffes et Avocat before we went back to Geneva for a walk along the lake.
A really relaxing weekend!
