Raclette Night

Dinner with Mathesons and WatsonsThis week our house was packed with visitors - Steve and Bev Matheson as well as cousins Alice and Julia. We had a traditional Swiss dish for dinner - no, not fondue, but raclettes. This is melted cheese poured over boiled potatoes (+ salad), very simple but tasty.

Dinner followed a busy day touring, including a visit to the Cailler chocolate factory, the chateau at Gruyeres, icecreams at Vevey and a walk around the gardens at the Olympic Museum, Lausanne.

This is what I mean. Hard work, exhaustive. What will you do to recoup - go to Italy? Oh how I wish I was with you.

I'm with you, Wendy, it's very hard to feel sorry for the Gardners obviously doing it so tough in Geneva.

All those snow-covered Alps, the chalets, the raclette and fondue, trips to Paris. How my heart just bleeds at the hardship!!
