這是Feb. 13, 閱怡克納米斯(鍾文榮)一文:  情人節,送玫瑰花好,還是送新台幣好? B逗趣給的回應↓, 結果隔天原預期的情人節卻是另個樣.....

***************************************

好老婆, 設計一夜羅曼蒂克的晚餐給老公如何?
2008/02/13 19:18

情人節為什只問女人想要什?
難道女人不也該花點心思, 讓自己所愛的男人感覺被愛?
愛情是要男女雙方用心去滋養的,
特別是老夫老妻更需要創造"生活情趣"去維持情愛的鮮度.

**************************************

情人節當早還濛濛中, 伴到床邊吻別並在耳邊嘶磨 : Happy to be my Valentine?
B直覺地點點頭, 眼和嘴巴也不禁迷迷彎彎地回應 : See you tonight!

其實日常生活中總有些事是計畫永遠趕不上變化.

之前一天買了菜, 原想情人節上餐館到處滿, 而且服務品質有時反爾差; 不如自己祕密張羅一套比平日特別的晚餐? 結果當晚伴回來說他早訂了Lausanne Palace Hotel的餐館, 還忙著電話聯絡朋友隔天怎麼同往.

B:  明天的晚餐我都設計好了....況且幾個星期前也提過Edgard的質價不怎相稱?
伴: 我們才去過一次, 而且是兩三年前的事. 最近報刊有專欄報導評薦很好喲!
B:  有沒搞錯, 怎麼情人節不是倆人en tete a tete? 幹嘛要塞其他人當電燈泡?
伴: 幾個月前 I 說Edgard被
Gault millau新評17/20又有米其林一星, 提過要一起去...
B:  那可找其他時間才去啊?
伴: 嘿~前兩次心血來潮想到要去都沒訂到位子. 這次我提早二週訂到了怎要放棄?
B:  那你自己去跟他們夫妻過情人節好了!
伴: ..........................

結果前一晚的床頭"打", 一早醒來忘光光就"床尾和"了~ 

B家偶發的吵架"搭嘴鼓"就常是這樣結局!

La Table d'Edgard http://www.lausanne-palace.com/fr/index2.php


跟上次去的印象, 怎不太一樣? 趁人還沒很多時, 先閃一張... 玫瑰、燭光、情人節!

酒單厚得像字典? 好的Bordeaux都不便宜, 伴翻了半天選了義大利Tuscany區Antinori的
2001Brunello di Montalcino

及法國Margaux產區的Chateau Rauzan-Segla 2001. 前者繁覆的果香中帶點甜韻, 張力頗強但少了些Tignanello的厚實, 後者較細緻, 入喉韻味挺滑順的.... 當晚只供set menu沒得選, 故意配好有空詳閱酒單? 先來這塞牙縫的羊酪層派Amuse-bouche...

Tapas aux saveurs de Mediterranee-地中海味小點, 左起小pizza、炸蔬菜海鮮三角餅、乾火腿夾Sea Bass、橄欖泥red snapper. 哇~趁熱品嚐全又鮮又棒.  B最愛這種一口嚐的美食, 老是令人
猶未足.

Ravioli ouvert de langoustine et St-Jacques-義式開口型小龍蝦干貝餃, 餃皮特別新奇、兩樣海產均味優鮮美.  Hey~ 再來五盤B也不厭....

Skrei au naturel veloute de tomates au capres et citron confit- 清蒸Skrei配蕃茄、檸檬醬, 鮮清濃純相搭很出味. 吃時不懂什是Skrei?只覺得口感很像cabillaud, 後來一查是娜威當季產的cabillaud另稱別名. 

Canette Mieral aux epices et olives Taggiasche Premieres asperges de Provence-法國著名Bress區Mieral特產幼鴨搭普羅旺斯初出鮮籚筍. 煎功奇巧肉嫩粉紅卻不帶血, 飾盤也挑逗味、聞、色感官.

Coeur de velours avec creme d'amour vanillee-這法文名取得巧, 懂得的人自己欣賞 (B翻不來同等感覺) 光看都感受一陣甜~

Mignardises-光看都令人心情愉快, 可B只嚐了最左的乾果巧克力; 其他的恨胃已無用武之力, 只能以眼睛純欣賞.... 要是臉皮厚一點要求包回家, 多好?

整個算算Edgard差不多只有20個桌子, 當晚每桌都是儷人雙影; 只有我們及另一靠窗(銀髮族客人)這兩桌是四人組.  我們這一桌精神旺盛又不夠老、有說有笑特別吵, 惹得其他輕聲細語卿卿我我很有情調的一對對老往B桌瞧. 這一晚情人夜雖吃得稱心又爽, 可也當足了特猛燭光的大電燈泡!

舊文: 情人節的滋味...  記錄了2004、5、6年的情人節, 卻想不起2007是怎麼過? 查手記本卻一點記錄也沒有?! 原來去年B與伴才渡完假在最後一站的曼谷分手, 情人節那天人己回到臺灣待在老媽身邊.  後來翻電子郵件, 倒有一則伴寄的cybercarte!

A story from a forwarded e-mail to share with all of you.

It was a busy morning, about 8:30, when an elderly gentleman in his 80's, arrived to have stitches removed from his thumb. He said he was in a hurry as he had an appointment at 9:00 am.  I took his vital signs and had him take a seat, knowing it would be over an hour before someone would to able to see him. I saw him looking at his watch and decided, since I was not busy with another patient, I would evaluate his wound.

On exam, it was well healed, so I talked to one of the doctors, got the needed supplies to remove his sutures and re-dress his wound.  While taking care of his wound, I asked him if he had another doctor's appointment this morning, as he was in such a hurry. The gentleman told me no, that he needed to go to the nursing home to eat breakfast with his wife.

I inquired as to her health. He told me that she had been there for a while and that she was a victim of Alzheimer's disease. As we talked, I asked if she would be upset if he was a bit late. He replied that she no longer knew who he was, that she had not recognized him in five years now.

I was surprised, and asked him, 'And you still go every morning, even though she doesn't know who you are?'He smiled as he patted my hand and said, 'She doesn't know me, but I still know who she is.'

*************************************************************************

True love is neither physical, nor romantic. True love is an acceptance of all that is, has been, will be, and will not be. The happiest people don't necessarily have the best of everything; they just make the best of everything they have.

Life isn't about how to survive the storm, but how to dance in the rain.

老夫老妻了
還有過情人節的想頭與情調真是浪漫、令人欣羨。我家老爺跟人約時間也不注意日期,提醒他那天是情人節,才在半夜回來時帶回來兩朵玫瑰,一朵給我,那麼另一朵呢?你猜猜?
女兒是爸爸上輩子的情人.........是不是啊? 
問過李家老爺, 玫瑰是買的還是臨時順手牽來的? B2008/02/19 06:13回覆

"情人節,送玫瑰花好,還是送新台幣好?"
年年情人節, 安姜什麼都沒有, 因為偶是放高利貸的那一個~ 

這樣才高竿!是安公得細察安姜的臉色?
不過偶而妳也要寵寵他喔?

經濟學的混沌裡稐

哈哈,原來天有不測風雲,我那篇文章+你的回應,是那隻翩然飛起的蝴蝶,讓你的情人節計畫起了變化嗎?


哎呀~人生就是要常有變化, 生活才不至於僵化嘛!
其實B善變又不太隨俗, 這次隨伴去"滷"一下變相Valentine....又省得下廚, 不也挺有趣?

B是肚飽就想睡的人, 一見了這別出"心"裁可是眼睛大亮......
