Travel Thursday





Today ladies we're off to Provence in beautiful south of France on the Mediterranean. It's the first Roman province outside of Italy. Land of lavender fields. Awww. Did you bring your camera? I've arranged a morning cooking class for us all to take in Marseille. We can impress our husbands upon return. We'll make bouillabaisse, the classic seafood stew and a tapenade with capers and olives grown in the region. We'll enjoy this for lunch with plenty of crusty French bread and wine. Afterwards, to walk off some of that lunch, we'll go shopping and enjoy the views of the Cote d'Azur that inspired Matisse, Van Gogh, Renoir and Picasso. At some point in their lives they all lived here. Above you'll see the restaurant I picked out for dinner. Maybe we'll try some ratatouille and even try the popular drink, pastis, made with anise. And I hear the pastry chef here is phenomenal so we'll try one of every dessert before we happily go to sleep and wake up back in our beds. Hope you've had a nice visit. I suddenly feel full!
