Every season, everywhere, has its high points; although I'm still trying to find some for our Winters.
We are still having quite pleasant weather, but the mornings are cool. The leaves are beginning to change colour, and they are beginning to fall.
This morning I went to see my wine makers to fill-up a couple of 5 litre plastic containers, and as is their wont, they presented me with a free 1.5 litre sample of their new wine.
On returning home I went to find a few more mushrooms, and picked the above. I also put a few straggler Chestnuts into my pocket.
On the menu tonight will be a Cèpe omelet, followed by a few roasted Chestnuts, all washed down with some of the delicious new wine. Of course.
Autumn is also time for Paté making. I'm no longer making ordinary Paté (I can buy better than I can make). I'm now concentrating on my more luxurious Paté, with a big lump of foie gras in the middle. Just ten 350 gm jars for the moment. I may do a few more later. The jars are being sterilised as I write. Three hours at a rolling boil. Above is the finished job.
Does life get any better?
