Today's special : "Poule au pot"

© All Rights Reserved
It is a typical french dish. This dish has been created
by the famous french king, Henri IV. Half past three of
cooking are necessary. And you. What do you eat on Sundays ?

la poule Henry IV ou poule au pot, le met ou Henry IV avait dit "je souhaite que mon bon peuple puisse mettre la poule au pot tous les dimanches", elle est préparé depuis plus de quatre siécle, elle n'a pas était inventé par Henry Iv mais on lui doit sa renommé, en favorisant l'agriculture henry Iv permit aux paysans qui vivaient chichement de maigres légumes et de lard rance...
il permit d'offrir le luxe d'une poule bien dodue dans le pot (plat de l'époque soit en terre cuite que l'on deposait pres du point de cuisson) en attendant pour ma part ce sera Figatellu sur la braise et prizuttu quelques beignet pour alléger tout cela...

Are those huge carrots? Sunday meals? Depends on where I am or whether it's a holiday. We often prefer brunch with the children and grandchildren. Lots of fun. While in Mexico, I eat out--anywhere I can find good food! Which happens to be everywhere!!

Definitely chicken, not the cook today so I don't know how it's being cooked!

Yummy. Your lunch looks so delicious. I wouldn't mind a recipe for Poule au pot.
I'm having prawns in garlic and chilly with rice today. A friend is cooking, so that's a bonus.
Bon apetit.

Wow. I would love to know how to make that dish. Will you publish the recipe? Tonight is a special occasion, and we are going out to our favourite restaurant for Indian food, but usually on Sunday nights I cook meat of some kind. usually roast beef, or roast chicken. Then I can usually have some leftovers to take to work.

Looks delicious for a winter day.

This Sunday (we don't always have roast on Sundays!) i prepared a buffet of fresh, green salad, tuna & bean salad, rice with peas & sweetcorn, cold roast chicken, ham, granary bread, cheese.

For dessert, ice cream & maple syrup.
