Dear readers,


Chers lecteurs,


So I'm pretty sure you're wondering where I'm going with this title. Won't tell you, sorry... Except if you read till the end!


I began flea-marketing / yard-saling / brocanting (what do you mean it's not in your dictionary?) again on Sunday mornings as we're blessed with a nice weather here (and my thoughts go to all of you across the ocean that aren't as lucky).


J'ai repris mes chasses dans les brocantes les dimanches matins, encouragée par le temps magnifique dont nous bénéficions.




Last Sunday, I went to three different "brocantes" (really we call it "attic sales" around here), but wasn't very lucky. Still, it's not always about buying, it's a lot about visiting the village where it takes place, too.


Dimanche dernier n'a pas été très fructueux, malheureusment.


I mean, when you park your car and go out to a beautiful sea view or park your car so close to such a nice church, you can't complain, really.




Sorry about all those cars in front of the church, no one volunteered to move their car for me to get a better picture... and I can't blame them as it took me ten minutes to move my own car after everyone arrived later than me and parked all around my car! So here's where I confess I'm not the best driver of the world!


Mais comment se plaindre quand brocanter permet aussi d'admirer une belle vue sur mer, de se garer devant une adorable petite église ou de rêver devant une chaumière digne de Blanche-Neige.




Don't you believe Snow White lives here?


I did find something that day, but it's a gift for my mum, so no way I'm showing it before Mother's Day (which is only next Sunday, here!)




And I also found a nice egg coddler: the guy selling it only asked for 2 € when all those I checked on "Le Bon Coin" on the Internet were at 20 €.


J'ai tout de même trouvé un "coquetier anglais" (meilleure traduction qui me vient en tête, mais ce n'est pas un coquetier vraiment) pour 2€ alors que le moins cher trouvé sur Le Bon Coin est en ce moment à 20€!




J'ai testé le lendemain soir une petite recette... Cela ressemble, je crois, à ce qu'on appelle les "oeufs cocotte" en français.


The next evening I tried to make my very first coddled egg and it was delicious... And yes, my dinner looked like a breakfast... That's when you need to play that video of Brittany's most intelligent one-liners... The breakfast one is at the beginning.






If you're not a gleek, you can just skip the video and tell me in the comment I'm insane and you didn't understand a thing!





By the way, I think I have a new addiction: egg coddlers! They are just so cute!


Et voilà, une nouvelle collection vient peut-être de commencer, il va vraiment falloir que je conçoive une cuisine avec beaucoup d'étagères...

Note perso: Maman, si tu en vois...

Hey lovely,

Well, the video wouldn't work for me. Aaargh!! So I am left confused. ;-)

But I still LOVED the rest of your post - as always! You have such a lovely sense of humour that comes over perfectly in your writing.

Yum! Looks delicious. And look at that lovely church! Oh, I want to go there, too. Beautiful!

Je ne connaissais pas ce genre de "coquetier". En principe pour des oeufs "cocotte", c'est un petit caquelon plus plat avec un couvercle en terre. Mais le tien est vraiment très très mignon

Oui, mais là, ça cuit au bain-marie, ce qui fait un oeuf tout moelleux... Donc, à partir de maintenant, on ouvre l'oeil dans les brocantes pour trouver d'autres coquetiers grand modèle (pour
simplifier la vie des collectionneuses, il existe deux tailles!). Si j'en ai plusieurs, je pourrai vous faire goûter ma recette.
