Oh.My.Goodness. (Certainly worth repeating.)

You know when you're just chugging along in the re-balancing process in these early days of a new year? The festivities are over, you're back into the routine, the weather sucks and equilibrium is on the horizon...but just beyond reach. And then - pop! In the midst of a gray day there is this brilliant flash of color that comes out of unexpected places and you just know that everything is going to be better. Yup. I know you know how this goes.

Yesterday was just such a day for me. I stumbled upon the discovery that La Fourchette has received a review. And a may I say, a lovely review it is. No, really! Go take a peek at it. (No, wait. What am I saying? Don't just peek. Read and savor every, single word right down to the signature at the bottom. Like I did. Then continue on because there are some treasures to be found in the deeper folds, too.)

Merci...mille fois to Keith Eckstein for his kind words. From his digs up in Brittany, he provides an extensive running review of blogs in France at A Taste of Garlic.

What a way to start the year! Yes, things are really beginning to look up for me and that fluffy little dog I live with.

Lets hope that things continue to look up for you and that fluffy dog you live with!

All the best


P.S. Shouldn't you be in the kitchen?

P.P.S. I've been called many things in my time but... this brilliant flash of color that comes out of unexpected places - well, that's a new one on me!

Keith, Merci encore. Back in the kitchen with gusto and turnin' up the heat on a soup that will show up in the days ahead.

PPS - First time, huh? Tough to believe!

Carla, Why thank you! (And what a lovely compliment coming from someone with "incredible photos"!)

Bravo Leslie! I knew eventually the world would find your treasure of a blog. I am for some reason not getting it in my email anymore - better re-subscribe. Love and Miss you!

Coll, Thank you, m'dear! Go to the "Follow" and click on...well..."Follow"! I'll be happy to have you back at the table! xoxo

Bonjour Leslie! I have found your blog through Keith's review and thought I'd say hello (or bonjour).
Happy New Year to you!

la fourchette said...

Bonjour, Sara! Welcome and thanks so much for stopping in. (I'm right with you - baby-steppin' it in my little French life...and we share an affinity for claw-footed bath tubs, as well!) Hope you'll be a regular. it'll be great to have you at the table!

Tamsie, I've no idea what happened to your comment. I checked the box for it, published it and it even shows up in my master list of comments but I'm not seeing it on the post. A long way of saying, "Thank you!" xo
