A tactical detour.

An easy choice today.

A trio of chocolate and a Rum Chantilly.

At the butchers we're faced with a Melon of lamb and an Epigram of Lamb. Unsure of what they might be we opt for lamb chops. The angelic duo watch them being wrapped with studied concentration.

Outside the butchers we make a tactical detour.

Bob and Sophie are not the only dogs who discuss politics with their master :

So many difficult decisions just now. At least with the lamb, any of the options available look perfectly acceptable (and better).
Bertie and I both drooling.
Cheers! Gail.

Is it sad that we are more excited by the offerings at the butcher than the baker? A trio did seem a fine choice however.

We love a piece of lamb - being kiwis and all.

Felix is a smiler and wise for his age in dog years. I would love to try a melon of lamb but baffled how one would cook it....roasting?

oh I don't know... the tarte citron looks quite tasty to me. The whole Brexit thing has gone to the dogs, if you ask me... YAM xx

A melon d'agneau is a gigot, the bone removed, rolled back up and tied in a way that resembles a melon. The epigramme is part of the poitrine, taken from under the shoulder.
Fancy butcher!
I heard two podcasts lately that made me wonder what you would say. One is "On Point," which featured philospher Elizabeth Anderson on freedom and equality. The other is in French: "Spla$h," with the economists Étienne Tabbagh and Laureen Melka, on whether "les riches sont-ils cupides ou généreux?" (Spoiler: they aren't generous, studies show.)

I could stay at the Bakers forever! Maybe sampling several offerings right there in the store.

That little white fluffball looks fierce.
I thought lamb was supposed to be in the spring, are these early? Or maybe they're an indication that winter is going away soon, yes please.
