In France during Lent they have something called Mi-Kareme. It means mid-Lent and it’s a day off from the trials and tribulations of fasting and self-denial…oh, like the French are so into that sort of thing. I love the concept—gotta hand it to the French— and happily adapted it to my Month of Pain routine. So on Sunday the 13th (OK, so not exactly half way) I made a chicken pot pie (I may have had a glass of wine as well, but hey, it’s allowed on Mi-MOP).
It was lustrous.
And my grand-niece didn’t cry once.
