saving the day

(Cold + crappy)weather+cold shower+(cold + greasy)fries for lunch = crabby Betsy

But then came dinner.

We dined in the courtyard of an ancient farmhouse, surrounded by azaleas. The kids relished plates of gambas in pastis sauce. M savored a perfect steak and my ratatouille was fabulous; crisp and flavorful. Bats pirouetted gracefully above our heads, and when it got dark the owner came out and placed flickering candles on every table. It was a perfect evening...

That sounds parfait!

The question is... did you order this time? (Runs and ducks)

Sorry, I couldn't resist. ;-)

Yum! How'd you ever find the place? Plain old luck?

I love to watch bats flying. They are amazingly graceful.
