Turkey, Barley, Zucchini and Mushroom Salad; Bastille Day Past — 6 Comments

  1. What a nice glimpse of your first experiences in France. One of my best friends is currently living in Menton and they love it! My husband and I often fantasize about living in France or Italy but we don’t know how much we’d miss the States if we did.
    Thanks for posting!

  2. There’s a French girl in the lab that I’m working and my boss asked her every hour, on the hour, yesterday where the cake was (all in good nature of course). It was quite funny!
    Oh peanut vinaigrette. That’s what I need in my life.

  3. I love your recount of your first Bastille Day, Katie. The fruit salad, truly American – good for you! – sounds so delicious, as does that lovely, healthy turkey-barley, etc rendition.
    Happy summer from Portland, Oregon!

  4. Jean, you won’t know until you try! And there will always be things you miss – right now there are things I miss about the U.S. – and Ireland and Andorra….
    Ina, that was our last – I pulled the lettuce yesterday, Sigh…
    Val, the food always makes it good ;-))
    Joanne, hmmmm…. but cake, as you know it, doesn’t exist in France…. Profiteroles, now…. Peanut vinaigrette? Any excuse to eat peanut butter!
    Christine – and a Happy Summer to you in Portland? I’ve always wanted to visit Oregon…
