Millas in Lavelanet

Millas--or milla as it's sometimes spelled is an Ariègeois specialty. A mixture of cornmeal and water, it's abit like polenta. This morning, we drove into Lavelanet for a gardeners' vide grenier. The few stalls looked lonely inside the huge halles but we did buy an old fork, some vintage Christmas cards and some plants. At the entrance, a couple was stirring a huge copper pot of millas to be served later, cut in slabs and sprinkled with sugar.
