Beyond Puree

Well, much to my joy I am back on solid foods. My appetite isn't what it was, and that is not necessarily a bad thing, but I can now enjoy most solid foods.

My friend Vicki flew over from Australia, to check that I really am in one piece, and together we took much joy in re-introducing me to solid foods. The celebration dinner? At one of my favourite restaurants, le Chante Clair.

There I am with my delicious asparagus - perhaps it seems odd that I would go for asparagus, after all my soups, but I just love the stuff, and had to take advantage of the fact that it is in season.

Vicki and I then went on a bit of a spa tour, checking out the waters in various locations around France and Switzerland, and of course enjoying small portions of various delicious things where ever we went.

Very cool Raclette. I have the fancy electric one I bought from Amazon. We LOVE it. Do you have one at home?
