When its beautiful here..it reminds me of Provence..the blue skies..the heat..

lovely salads in squares..
on terrasses..all so very magical..days I will never forget.
I made a neat salad..Alice Water's..Food and Wine..
Baked Goat Cheese Salad..
I added honey to the vinaigrette and used Panko..

perfect summer salad..for lunch or for dinner!
My French salad plates I have had for years and they have aged so well!
In Provence..so many pastry shops ..so many.
you are often tempted to skip lunch and have a pastry.
When I succumbed to temptation..it was for Sacristains:)
Easy to replicate at home..not exac
I did not use this recipe..I used from a French site..but they look like mine:)
I used bought PP.

Bon weekend and ensuing week~
Our tradition with each of the boys..on their birthdays..we pick them up and take them out for lunch then they shop:)
Every year..Noah heads to Toys-R-Us..LEGOS!
He is an Avengers/Lego afficionado.
Both are loves of his so when you can combine the two..=happiness doubled.
He sets them up in no time.
Makes him so happy.
My daughter saves all the booklets..his sets are intact..many set up in his room..he has well over 100..she stopped counting..he started very very young:)It's a passion for him.
I like that little passion.
He's so careful w/ his things too..lol like his dad;)i.e. his toys:)
