Yet another glorious sunny day was forecast but eventually it was cooler than yesterday but even in Tours at 5pm it was 29.5 degrees centigrade .... this morning I managed to rise earlier than normal and made a savoury tart for a picnic with my home-made frozen shortcrust pastry, some previously cooked, chopped beetroot leaves, wild set cherry tomatoes, black olives and goats cheese arranged prettily with a Cantal grated cheese topping. Also I conjured up a chocolate, pear and hazelnut tart for this evening's meal. We rendez-vous-d avec le Maire, finished domestic duties, and dashed to Tours to collect Captain Sensible's sister and husband from the airport. The charcoal for the evening barbecue didn't seem to get sufficiently hot so CS made the kebabs in the oven under the fan-assisted grill and served them with a cheese fondue. Very nice!! The entrée was my terrine de porc, pistache et prun avec une petite salade mais pour moi la même sans le terrine! After a natter and a chatter we played cards and so to bed! 090909 est fini!
