Tom an Trish had never visited the town or caves of Roquefort - home of the world famous cheese - so we decided to make a Saturday trip and then a side pass by THE bridge and then down to the town of Millau for lunch and a stroll. Lunch included a plate of frog legs for the table...a new experience. I do not know what kind of frogs I thought they used, but I could not believe how small the legs were. A serious toothpick with a nibble. It looked and tasted just like chicken with a ton of butter and garlic smothering it. Although the fact that basically we were eating the bottom half of a lot of frogs was a bit on the berk side, they weren't bad at all. I do think I will stay with snails as my most exotic preferred dish...they are actually yummy and I love them!!

AHHHH lunch by the sea on a beautiful Friday! This is where we lived when we first moved here - La Grande Motte. (Translation: the big pile - no fooling!) We decided to forgo the cheapie pizza at Le Quai and splurged on a three course meal at Alexandre's. It was the right decision! Really reasonable at 28 euro for a three course meal that was simply perfect in every way. My entree was Cremeux aux celeris a moules de something or other...it was yummy!! Basically cream of celery soup with celery root and mussels that melted in your mouth. Sounds better in French as everything else does!! This was followed by Maigre de quelques choses que je ne peux pas me rappeler parce que j'ai bu trop du vin!! Suffice it to say it was super yummy (or miam miam in French). The dessert that I really didn't need and Mike ended up eating was three different but equally je ne sais pas exactement mais miam miam miam. Of course lunch was followed by espresso and the second dessert that I should always remember and not bother to order the first...guimauve et pates d'orange. Now I sit here and write totally ready for a dodo (nap!! You really need to polish up on your high school French!!) but instead I am a good girl and must update you all on the wonderful life in the South of France...A+ mes amis!!
