  • Yum!

  • I saw them recently up where I am (near Annecy) but don't know what to do with them. How do you cook them?

  • makiwi 2w ago

    @kaitew13 The classic way is to poach them in milk and then bake them with a little cheese. Look up “gratin de cardons”

  • makiwi 2w ago

    @kaitew13 also good in soups etc. The key is to remove the tough outer stringy parts and to gently cook them in milk or stock etc for about an hour

Even though I don’t like shuttles with built in hooks much, I couldn’t resist this gorgeous shuttle from La Cossette. It came with the tiny pea pod as a bonus!

かぎ針付きシャトルは余り好きじゃないんですが、La Cossette さんのシャトルに一目惚れしてポチッてしまいました。ちっちゃいエンドウ豆は何とおまけです!

The release date of The Just Bento Cookbook 2 is slowly but surely approaching! Here’s a closeup of one of the bentos...inspired by an Okinawan dish. 😊

Épeautre (spelt) matza made in the Alsace. Sold at Super-U. As an ex-New Yorker I need a periodic matzo ball soup fix. They don’t sell matzo meal at the local supermarket (they do sell it in Avignon) so we grind up these. #livinginfrance #provence #vaucluse #france #dailyfood <- going to try to remember using this tag

This is a gluten free cookie made with chestnut and rice flours. It’s delicious! It’s made by a biscuiterie (a cookie bakery basically) with the adorable name Les Secrets de Lola in a neighboring town - the owner says it’s an old recipe. He sells an assortment of very old fashioned, homey cookies and the like. This is his only gluten free one. I love the cracks and the fingerprints.
Incidentally, the marché people are a whole lot more relaxed and friendly now that the tourists are mostly gone. 😅

My notebook (A5 Leuchtturm 1917 dot grid in black, ye bog standard for you know what) was getting a bit scratched up and tired looking, so I spruced it up with some lace masking tape from Pavilio. It’s good to keep going for another month at least! #leuchtturm1917 #notebook #maskingtape #bulletjournal #stationery #バレットジャーナル #文房具 #irefusetocallitwashi

I sort of do a very loose version of Bullet Journalling. One thing is lots of lists. This one, called “I want...or do I?” is where I note down things I want to get, and why I want it...or not. In the last column I note whether I actually bought it. It has really helped to cut down on late night impulse buying online and the like. #bulletjournal #journal #lists

In progress. Tiny, difficult thread (Sajou Fil Dentelle au Chinois, a bit thinner than no. 80). Finicky pattern. Self-torture! 😬 細くて扱いづらい糸(80番よりやや細め、切れやすい)。パターンもめんどくさい。でもやってる。🤔#tatting #tattinglace #タティングレース

I found one of the illustrations I drew during radiation therapy for cancer no. 1. Chemo for current cancer no. 2 is worse in a lot of ways, but I cry less about it...
