Day 200: Tartiflette—You Gotta Get You Some!

It is my two hundredth day anniversary. Two hundred days! I cannot believe my staying power. My mum will be shocked. She is of the opinion that I never finish anything. I am of the opinion that lots of things are a journey, a process with no destination. It is all perspective.

Do you know what a tartiflette is? Me neither. Or, I don't. Didn't. Here is how to make one. But if you cannot be bothered with a hyperlink, let me tell you a little about it. The good news is there is a vegetable in there. But it is an onion. The bad news is the rest is stuff you love to eat but are so often told you shouldn't: potato, bacon, butter, white wine, creme fraiche and oodles of melted soft french cheese. I want it on my fork now. But it looks like three thousand calories a mouthful. I exaggerate. A serve is only five hundred and forty-nine calories!

Something that you will hear a lot about from me in the coming weeks—especially with Hannibal and Elementary finished up for the season—is So You Think You Can Dance (the American Version with Nigel and Mary and Cat Deeley; NappyTabs and tWich and Adam Shankman and Mia). It is, and I don't say this lightly, the very best reality television show of them all. Of. Them. All. This season the dancers are more incredible than ever. And if you don't believe me, look at this Sand Dance. Keep in mind this is from the top twenty selection show. Only auditions and elimination rounds have preceded it. These dancers are working together for the first time as a group this large. Many of the dancers are street dancers and not used to choreography. Keep all that in mind, then watch. Incredible. I nearly cried at the beauty of it. And for the next few weeks I will be coveting having a dancer's body and dancer's flexibility all of my own—preferably without a dancer's regime.

  1. "French cheese" - there's a phrase to give one a reason for living.

  2. Cool shoes! You're really getting your money's worth out of the tutu - and it looks fab each time.

    I love SYTYCD! This is a good year, amazing talent. I bet they don't eat tartiflette.

    1. I bet you are right. I don't think they can even be in the same room as that much cheese.

  3. Mega-gorgeous outfit you're wearing. My barista made it through several rounds on the Canadian offshoot of SYTYCD. So young, so handsome, so flexible. He said he'll teach me and Sandra to "crump".
