Mirabelles

Monday 20th August

Hello properly again everyone!

The first day of my diet started badly when I had the same as George, two croissants for breakfast! eek! He also had some strawbs and mirabelles we bought back from Germany - does anyone know where or if I can get these in the UK & if they are called something different - they are fab!

George refused lunch, but ate an organic cereal bar and some scone at Ciaran's house!

Supper was 1.5 mushroom puff pastry flans and 2 tomato puffs too. He refused the tomatoes we picked for supper, but finished off the mirabelles and had a few extra strawbs too.

love

Hi Mel,

Mirabelle is my favorite fruit and it's from my area (Metz). Unfortunately, I have never seen any in the uk and believe me I tried. You can buy then in jars in france so you might be lucky and find an online shop.

Gisele (the same one as on BC and FB)

I thought that might be the case, as I was sure I would have seen one before this week if you could get them.

They were delicious, and George adores them. Typical eh?

Thanks honey

love

I have never heard of a mirabelle - what is it I am intrigued. Sounds like a great holiday!
Do you have any updates on the office junior's adventures into the world of fruit?!

mirabelle plum is also known as the mirabelle prune - not sure if that helps!

Rachiemum: said...

apparently they dont supply them after all. sorry (they do supply them some other yellow plums which are really scrummy) xx

Mel_x said...

I got very excited then Rachie! lol

Laura, they are little sweet yellow plums, totally delicious!

I am taking him in strawberries tomorrow - but with holidays and general crapness the office junior trials have been slack of late! Will keep you posted!

sorry Mel. however i found out loads of (useless) info from DH about Mirabelles lol... like the fact that their growing season is only 4wks hence the low availability and why they arent really exported.

Ciaran's mummy's scones are tasty, that's why ;)

Do you know where to find all-butter puff pastry anywhere around? I was appalled to find that the Saxa puff pastry that they have at Asda has hydrogenated fat in it!!

Thought maybe you'd know, since you know ALL!

Oh, and the St Dalfour mirabelle plum jam is really nice - had some on my toast this morning!

This site sells mirabelle plum trees - maybe for the garden at your next house?!
