Amateur baker with a passion for eating!
Salut tout le monde! 🙂
I am writing this post from my new flat in Bordeaux. Yes, in France! The land that gourmands dream of. I’ll be living here until mid-November, but the terrible irony of my situation is that I am super skint. Which means I can’t really justify splashing out on good food all the time (although I really wish I could!). And then, to add to that, my kitchen is… well, not very well equipped. For starters, I don’t have an oven. Or a freezer. Just some hobs and a microwave.
At the moment, I have been eating pitta bread with salami for lunch, and pasta with tomato sauce for dinner. Practically every day. I cannot survive until mid-November like this!
I need YOUR HELP 🙂
If you have any super cheap & super easy recipes… send them my way 🙂 Tasty packed lunch and evening meal suggestions are what I really need… plus the odd sugary/chocolatey pudding idea, of course 😉 I have so little money at the moment, so I would prefer not to have to buy 50 million ingredients… and would love it if the ingredients I do buy are versatile & can be used in lots of different meals!
I would be unbelievably grateful if anyone could help me out – links to blogs and websites would be much appreciated 🙂
Now, just in case this begging, pleading post isn’t very interesting… let me show you some of the wonderful food and drink I have had the chance to taste during my time here!
Well, you can’t come to France without eating a galette or two. Or three. And you can’t have a galette without following it with a crêpe for pudding. I’m pretty sure that’s the law here…
This was taken on a wine tasting tour! Went to have a nosy round the château du Taillan to see how the good stuff is made. Didn’t manage to steal a barrel unfortunately >.<
Anyway, that’s all the good food I’ve have so far… thanks in advance to anyone who helps me improve this tally 🙂
