Oh La La!

Well I’m finally back in France and have been here since June 7th, but then a bunch of annoying things happened, like my computer declaring itself old and dead.  I won’t bore you with the saga of how I ordered a computer without an operating system online but, in general, things like that just kept happening!  Still it didn’t stop me from eating and drinking and laughing to exhaustion 😀

The first thing I made was a big pot of mussels Roquefort.  However, those pictures went down with the ship and included a picture of M. Parret 🙁   I don’t remember when I roasted these coquelets but I had fresh, green beans with lardons and fingerling potatoes!

I know I’m in  France when vegetables and meats taste like they did when I was a child. And I’ve got lots of fresh herbs still growing, although they were abandoned for almost a year and a half!

This is the good, simple food that I’ve missed along with my Kenyan serving fork and spoon.

No recipes.  I’ve got to catch up!
