09/07/2017 The local hunt repas

Maximum temperature 27C, minimum 16C.   9 km/h NE winds with 10 km/h gusts. Some rain not measured as yet.
Note: I do not approve of hunting in any form, but the wild boar (sanglier), are a real pest to the crops in France and they are breeding well.
Car parked and looking over the roof tops.

The local church.

Oleander - pretty but poisonous.

Salle des fêtes with improvements still going on having bought the next door property.

Where we had today's lunch...

sanglier on the spit...

as above.

The tent was packed full...

Starter.

Perfectly cooked meat...

Main course...

Bread, cheese and salad.

They took the easy way out for dessert but is was a great way of finishing off the meal,

Our friend Jean who appears to have made a great recovery from lung cancer having had one lung removed.

    1. The church is very old Pam. The church Saint-Maixent was built in the eleventh and 12th centuries. The first stone was laid in the year 1080. Keep well Diane

  4. Jean looks like a very nice man, Diane, and I am very happy he has recovered from the cancer. The bread, cheese and salad, and the meat, all look delicious! And I love that church building!

    1. Linda he is the perfect gentleman and does speak a very little English to help me out :-) Same as I printed above for Pam - The church Saint-Maixent was built in the eleventh and 12th centuries. The first stone was laid in the year 1080. It has lots of history attached to it. Keep well Diane

  5. Yes, I am sure those animals are dangerous, also. There is a need to cull their numbers.

    One always asks, what does it taste like? -smile- Perhaps, something like pork? But of course, each meat tastes like IT TASTES!

    1. I agree Luna I would not want to have an argument with a wild boar, they have extremely sharp teeth!!! They taste very similar to pork but have a lot more gamey and interesting flavour. Have a great day Diane

  6. Well if the wild boar are a problem, why not eat them. It all looks delicious.
