just another thursday
we won’t be celebrating thanksgiving here in autignac. in previous visits we have, but this time we are giving ourselves a pass. i am still very tender after my recent bout with La Gastro, so really a big, rich meal wasn’t much of an option. i am sure several of our french friends would have gotten a kick out of eating a traditional american thanksgiving dinner, although last time we were here, we tried to buy a turkey for christmas and were told in no uncertain terms that a turkey was a vastly inferior roasting bird to a capon, and if i must be honest, they were, as in so many questions of gastronomy, correct.
