Sounds like a beautiful spread of food throughout your day. That produce of grapes and fresh veg are so vibrant. I've never seen grapes that colour!

Hi Dianne,

What a perfect day you have had here.
Love the sweet children, yummy meal and the cute 2CV. I have always wanted one of these, we had a friend that had a cute red one. The left hand drive though can be a problem.

Happy Sunday,
Hugs Carolyn

Dianne, we enjoyed saucissons sec (try and repeat that 5 times quickly!) at a friend's home in the Paris suburbs last week. Your photos are lovely as usual, and the first one is my favorite!

Hey there Diane, how did I not find your blog until now (came over from ...the Charente.) I am a fellow francophile grounded in Australia but winging it to France every chance I get. Next trip in May 2011! Hoping to see more of SW France (Dordogne etc) this trip.

You might like to trip across to my Paris blog. I have posted some Christmas deliciousness.

Ah the 2cv, I bought one and the Citroen garage couldn't service it properly. I found a guy who came from Lebanon, he took me through it step by step. There was a missprint in the service manual so the garage was putting in the wrong spark plugs.
Champion L87Y are th0e correct ones.
I thing we owned 4 of them.( Not at once)
