Les Vacances (sort of)

Things are calming down a bit now that August has come to a close.

As the dreaded canicule fades from our memories and most of France is heading back to work and to school this week, those of us out here in the boonies get a bit of normalcy back in our lives. The foreign plates on the roads have been replaced by tractors coming and going from the vineyards, parking in the village is no longer an issue and navigating the morning markets is much easier.

What a difference from one month ago!


The next couple of weeks will be quiet around here while I clean out the clutter and cobwebs that have collected in both my brain and in our house. I also need to catch up on a few little projects that I was too busy to contend with in August.
I'll continue to be on Twitter and Facebook, and post photos to my Flickr page during my "vacances."


I'll be back on September 15 for the 9th Fête du Fromage International Cheese Tasting Event.
If you would like to join in, please have your entries to me by September 13. The entire round-up will be posted on September 15.


Tell us why you chose this particular cheese. Tell us how it tasted. Tell us about its texture and aroma. Did you eat it on its own? Or with something? Did you drink anything special with your cheese? Would you recommend it or not? Is there something unusual or interesting about it?
