At this time every year there’s always a day when I take a ridiculous number of photos of one of these beautiful butterflies on our lavender flowers. Today was that day. Sorry, the lamb chops etc. seem to have found their way onto the butterfly slideshow.
And then lunch ….
Earlier in the year we bought half a lamb from the Domaine des Pascales where we buy our rosé and white wine. One of the family lives on a sheep farm in the Aveyron and brings the lambs from their small flock to sell. These were some of the chops from that purchase. They were delicious with yogurt mixed with chopped garlic and mint, lemon, and barbecued aubergine and small green peppers straight from the garden. And a glass of red wine, of course.
And to follow, some farmhouse St Nectaire cheese, also from the Aveyron and also bought from Domaine des Pascales, bought from one of the places where they sell their wine – a good trade!
