Today Saturday, the weather was gloomy in Brittany again. It is really getting on the family’s nerves and the morale is low low low… In order to get a bit of fresh air we drove to the local château for a little walk. The Château de Kérouzéré, the only fortress of the fifteenth century, is located in Sibiril (northern Brittany).
The Kérouzéré castle is built of granite stone and covered with slates. It is decorated with paintings of the seventeenth century. In the park you can see a dovecote, a fountain, a well, a wash house (unfortunately falling apart), and a farm.
We had the place to ourselves. The chateau is not open to visitors at this period of time. So we wandered in the park filled with daffodils and lengthy crooked trees.
And strangely enough, by the time we went home, it was still not raining! How amazing!! We decided to celebrate by lighting a fire outside and wine, bread, cheese for lunch (and a bowl of comforting soup).
I cut little squares of buckwheat bread, dipped them in olive oil and garlic puree. A choice of camembert, maroilles and St Nectaire cheese was on display. Earlier on, I had quickly prepared a soup with quinoa, cabbage, sweet potatoes and tomatoes. This was definitely the highlight of this day. Pure simple pleasure.
I wish you all a comforting week-end wherever you live. And please, please, I beg you to send sun our way of you have enough!
