Bastille Day

Today is French Bastille Day. The cafe in a rainforest we visited while on holidays had a French chef. They were celebrating all things French for the month of July. The staff wore stripes and berets. The menu had Escargots and Canard. I stuck to Chicken and Avocado sambos but had a cappuccino to feel decadent. Today I send out a big hello to anyone based in France.

A very special  "Bonjour" goes out to Corey who writes the wonderful Tongue in Cheek and my namesake Gina who is temporarily living in France with her beautiful twins while her husband is working there.

In the spirit of all things French I suggest you make a coffee or pour a glass of wine (depending on the time of day in your part of the world!) sit back and visit these two blogs, enjoy their photos and pretend for a little moment that you too are living in the land of garlic and berets and that tonight you will be serving your family Coq au Vin with fresh crunchy baguette and a rather generous glass of a hearty Cabernet Merlot!
