Big decision to decide what to eat!!
A quieter day, which will end with attending a service at the local cathedral, St-Bénigne, at 8:00pm. This cathedral was named after the first apostle of Burgundy. Its spire of 91 metres is the tallest in Dijon. It also boasts the beautiful Burgundian glass tiled roof.

But, the day started with a delightful outing…closer to home on the banks of Lac Kir. Another brocante! A leisurely stroll under the trees and through the pathways between the tables provided a pleasant start to our quiet day. Yes, a couple of purchases were made: a pot for Lyn, (oh, and a key for her new collection) and a small jug for Jan.

And now, the pièce-de-résistance for the day: Madame Smith created lunch for us; her very first soufflé! A brilliant effort and worth sharing! Mabel helped whisk the egg whites, Neville worked out the flour measurement, Jan finished the egg-white-whisking and Madame did everything else. Perfection! We three mere mortals will not be attempting to make soufflé here. The competition is too strong!

Très bien cuit mes amis. Les soufflés look étonnants - nous pourrions presque les goûter. Think we may need to dry mum out when you get home ;). So glad you are looking after yourselves xxx
