Found on my doorstep this morning... green beans from a neighbor that have my name (well, initial) on them! // Trouvés devant ma porte ce matin: haricots verts d’un voisin dans un sac monogrammé. #insearchoflostfrance #alarecherchedunefranceperdue

When is a zucchini not a zucchini? When it’s a marrow! ( the name for a big, mature zucchini or courgette in GB + Ireland.) Now the word nerd in me is trying to think if any other fruits or vegetables have different names for different sizes...(These marrows were gifts from a neighbor so now I’m all over the 🇬🇧 and 🇮🇪 food sites looking for recipes...)

Early morning walk and signs of a late-night swim(?)....someone forgot to put his/her espadrilles back on. // Balade tôt et les vestiges d’un tardif (?) Quelqu’un a oublié de remettre ses espadrilles.

First of August resolution...spend as much time outside as possible. So... panzanella for lunch on my favorite bench. // Resolution du 1er about: passer un Max de temps dehors. Donc, salade panzanella sur mon banc préféré ce midi.
