We are off to France this Sunday for our 20th Wedding Anniversary. Yippee we are so excited and traveling sans enfants, of course.
Only fitting too, since the last time we were in France we were on our Honeymoon. My french was terrible then, perhaps a bit better now, however a long long way to be considered half way fluent. Sigh.
That’s the trouble with being Canadian (well American now as well), is that people assume that I speak French as if it was my first language – Ha. It does improve though with a few glasses of wine!
I do plan to keep working on it since I have nothing to lose at this point, and I can add it to a few other things I one day hope to master – at this point the list is getting quite long.
To get in the French frame of mind what would be more appropriate for dinner then a ratatouille? Very French n’est pas? Also very opportune. I was able to use one more zucchini from the garden!!
- 1 1/2 lb pork tenderloin
- 1/2 cup your favorite bbq sauce
- 2 sprigs rosemary, chopped
- For the ratatouille:
- 2 Tbs olive oil
- 1 large onion
- 1 large eggplant
- 1/2 a red pepper and 1/2 green pepper, diced
- 1 medium zucchini, diced
- 4-5 large ripe tomatoes, diced
- 3 sprigs fresh rosemary, chopped fine
- salt and pepper to taste
