Attempting to Complete a Mission!
Yes, we have to do it. Leaving France last Spring, we had not completed our mission---to try all of the pastries at the wonderful patisserie in Uzes, Savarin. As you can see, the case is very full and because of our daughter's wedding we just did not have enough time. We can't wait to have an excuse to continue our quest.
Tomorrow we are off to Paris and the TGV to Avignon. The harvest of the grapes at our daughter and son-in-law's vineyard, La Gramiere( www.lagramiere.com ), will begin the beginning of September. Once again we shall spend our liesurely retirement picking grapes, carrying full buckets, hauling crates, stomping grapes (well, we tried it), tasting the juice, and finally, listening to the wine ferment in the vats.
Of course, we will need to begin immediately to sample the pastries in order to complete our mission. Join us!
