This chocolate is really worth it. I got it at Franprix.

Ce chocolat vaut vraiment le coup, il est très très doux. Je l’ai acheté à Franprix.

#4 In My Basket

It’s been a while since I’ve posted an In My Basket! I love doing these because I think most humans are interested in other people’s fridges…. or am I alone on that one? 🙂

Last Saturday I went crazy in the fruit and veg department, getting excited for some warmer weather. Coriander, avocados, water cress, zucchini, lemons for warm water and lemon as my morning detox, blueberries, some organic apples to make for stewed breakfasts (still need to help my body make the transition into Summer), and of course some delightful fresh figs. Don’t they look beautiful?

What fresh delights do you have in your kitchens this week?

With Spring arriving, but it still being quite chilly, the wintery fruits like pears, apples and rhubarb are still around.

I went to market on Sunday, which is still my favourite activity of the weekend (obviously), and got Swiss chard, rhubarb, pears, fresh basil, sourdough bread and fresh milk.

Tonight I’m going to make Swiss chard grattin. Last night I made basil hommus which was wonderful Sunday soul food – I’ll post the recipe this week.

The season is (finally) changing, and even though it’s still cold, the Winter vegetables are starting to go out of season. There are still the root vegetables and the Winter apples and pears but kale is going out of season now so it may be my last kilo of kale for a while. This week I’ll be eating so much kale!

I’ll take you through what I had in my basket this Saturday after my outing to market. Favourite outing of the week. By far .

Organic and fresh Jersey cow milk. For those of you that have lived in Europe, you must have also noticed their milk isn’t real milk, and to be honest it kind of freaks me out. You can keep it out of the fridge without it going off. It’s been so processed that it is no longer milk. So for my lattés and chai, I get this organic milk which is actually very good for you and full of lots of nutrients. I think that you need to put in your body what feels right. I respect fully the people who are lactose intolerant, and they should steer clear of my raw milk, but for those of you that can digest milk, please look at the way it’s been treated and ask yourself if the milk you are eating has any nutrient value, or if it’s like the freaky milk you find everywhere here in France. Without getting too political, it is also a great way to support local farmers. Lobbying by the government and big supermarkets is very strong in all countries. We need to think about the small producers and the quality of their products is absolutely one hundred times better than what you find in a supermarket.

My brunch. No ham.

In the side salad I put beetroot leaves, sprouted lentils and grated beetroots. I like my eggs scrambled so I did them with olive oil and kale. J likes his eggs fried so I sprinkled kale on them as they were cooking. The cheese is cantal, which is one of my favourite cheeses!

I hope you all had a wonderful weekend. What did you buy and cook this weekend? Anything special?

#1- In My Basket

I hope you all had a lovely weekend lovelies. Saturday was a gorgeously sunny day here in Paris so I got excited and took out my basket and flask of coffee and myself out to market to get some fresh vegetables. I do that every Saturday, but seeing it’s an important part of my weekend I thought you may enjoy knowing what fresh food I get each weekend, depending on the season and what I’m cooking, and showing you what I cook with it all. How does that sound? This little series will give you an insight into my Saturday mornings at market here in Paris.

Loaf of sourdough bread that had literally just been pulled out of the oven when I got it from my bakery.

With my fresh ingredients I made myself a kale, sprouted lentil, raw beetroot, grated ginger, and roasted beetroot (which I roast in coconut oil) salad with a dash of olive oil. The bread was still warm so I boiled two eggs and had them with some salted butter on toast. I can’t tell you how good it was.
