Posted in food, pia's photos, the houseboat June 22nd, 2009 by piablog




…white asparagus with french mayonnaise (my favourite). Followed by lumaconi pasta with creme fraiche, garlic and chanterelles. Finishing with strawberries and little melted chocolate pots for dipping.

It’s Monday night! I feel decadent.

Especially since I’m not the one doing the cooking.



PS I am very busy this week, and in the weeks to come, but I have so much I want to share with you so every spare moment I get I will be right here in the (blog)house with you! I have some exciting things to show & tell…

    Oh I was just daydreaming about white asparagus! I have fromage blanc at home…perhaps I should throw that in with some pasta and at least approximate your wonderful feast?

    that sounds amazing – my dinner is going to be more of the reheated pizza variety.

    Yummy! And to think that its a Monday night! Perhaps Mondays wouldn’t seem so bad if we always ate like this.

    I’m so glad you are inspired by our impromptu monday night menu. We don’t usually have 3 courses I assure you, but our key ingredients (white aspargus, chanterelles and strawberries) deserved full attention as seperate dishes.

    Amanda Nicole – I say French mayonnaise to differentiate between Dutch mayonnaise. French mayonnaise uses dijon mustard, and Dutch is kind of sweet (they eat it alot here with frites – and it’s delicious with frites but French mayo is still my favourite!)

    Pia… for all your sweetness you possess a culinary cruelty beyond measure! OMG…this sounds SO delicious! Made that much better by being off the cooking brigade. Hope it was as lovely as it sounds. 🙂

    At first glance the photo looked like ‘cheese strings’ and i was so relieved (and then completely envious) when i read on. Hope it was as delicious as i imagine.

    This sounds so delicious, even more so because asparagus & strawberries are so very out of season for us at the moment. I’m very envious!
