When you come to Provence to visit, we will taste our way through the countryside.
We will do breakfast at a cafe,
lunch at a bistro,
tea at a salon du the,
an aperitif at a bar,
dinner at a typical French restaurant, and if you have room...
we will have dessert too.
I will translate the menu if you do not read French. Though I must tell you I will translate meat dishes as: cow, pig, duck, horse... Cote du Boeuf: is a side of cow, okay?
But when it comes to the desserts, you will lick my face with happiness, even if I do not share. I will translate each dessert down to the speck of sugar detail.
You will have lavender creme brulee and I will have tarte tatin with vanilla bean ice cream.
When you come to France please wear elastic band pants. Be prepared to walk, talk, and eat.
"Eat! No, do not say that... do not say, eat to describe dining. Say: Dine." French Husband corrects me, and adds, "And the brocante?"
"And we will go to the brocante after we pig out." I add with my lovely twang.
Because as much as I love the brocante, I love to do the food thing more, can you believe that?
We will go to the grocery store, the bakery, and the market...
And at the brocante we will buy dishes, linen napkins, silverware and glasses.
When you come to visit me in Provence please bring:
Maple syrup, Johnson's baby powder, and Burt Bee's lip gloss.
I thought I might as well throw that in.
When you come to France what do you want to taste first?
Mary, Lucy, Sandra and I had olives, cheese, bread and wine for dinner, because we had lunch at "Du Pain sur la Planche" and honestly, we were happily, deliciously stuffed. You might say....We had alot on our plate.
