Nostalgia in a Meal


Yesterday, Ruthie and I made one of my favorite meals. I love steak au poivre vert. It’s a French dish which I used to enjoy eating in West Africa. Steak au poivre vert is steak with topped with a green peppercorn sauce. We used this recipe, and it turned out fabulous! To round out the meal we fixed haricot verts (green beans), pain (bread), and pommes du terre (potatoes, we had them twice-baked), with crepes for dessert. Ruthie and I had a great time cooking together.

While we were cooking, Stephen and Luke had a good time playing guitar.

Here’s the full meal! It was so yummy, and so fun to get to hang out with our family.

Luke provided some after dinner entertainment, in the form of ridiculously cute faces.

And, we finished off with crepes.


About Rachel

Most importantly, I am saved by grace through faith in the Lord Jesus Christ. He is more than enough to satisfy my heart. In His abundant goodness, I am also delighted to be a wife and mama. I work at home and enjoy spending most of my time caring for my husband, 2 sons and new daughter. I also try to squeeze in some creativity, coffee, chocolate, and good books.
