Living in France for 3 months with Jeannine & Roger


Aubeterre 19th April

Time for a rest, so today is a stay at home day to research our next history, discovery and geocaching destination.

However a taste of France continues with our lunch dining experience being the local restaurant “au Cochon Prieur”, the pig of the priory. For €15 each we had a 3 course meal, no choices, 2 baskets of bread, a French Niçoise salad entrée, a pork chop served Sicilian style, and what appeared to be a Baked Alaska without the flames. Wikipedia claims that the origin of the Baked Alaska is either French or American. Sorry no photos of the food, only one of our lovely outdoor dining terrace.

Our French word of the day is Cochon = pig, not only because of the restaurant, but because the locals were having a fundraiser and first prize was a Cochon, so was second and third, the amount just diminished each time.

A couple of people who decided to try living in France for three months, to absorb some of the culture and to try a diet of Baguette, cheese and wine.
