La Reine? C'est Moi.

Hi all,

Still no big things to report. Today was mostly spent in the kitchen making the best red beans and rice anyone has ever tasted. Seriously. I even managed to impress the hell out of myself.

Woke up this morning and after breakfast and coffee time, I took Virgile the dog for a real long walk. Since Veronique insists on feeding me like a Jewish mother, I need to have some sort of physical activity. There are a few parks around the neighborhood that are really scenic...En plus, today was a beautiful day.

After we got back, Virgile conked out on the floor exhausted, and I got lunch ready for Louise. Got a chance to talk on the phone to my friend Nanci, then I started the red beans and rice fun.

Vero came home around 6, and took me grocery shopping with her. The one thing I do miss in France is grocery shopping (surprise surprise). I just like looking around at all the different stuff...particularly the dairy aisle...and it's especially fun to go with Veronique, who is not only kind enough to point out interesting/different things, but is also the cheese MASTER. I never actually went to a fromagerie before because I was too scared, but watching Vero in action...wow. She must have bought 6 different kinds of cheese...brie, roquefort, chevre, feta, and a couple other things I didn't know. I tip my hat to her.

We got back around 8 and I busted out the red beans. I also introduced them to garlic bread...REAL garlic bread, meaning grated garlic mixed with real butter. A hit...a big grand hit.

I'm just mad at myself because we ate out in their yard and the weather was so nice and I forgot to take pictures. Dammit!

Tomorrow Lionel is taking me out to do some little touristy things.
