Lunch date in Bonnieux

On Thursday afternoon Spartacus and I went to lunch… In Bonnieux FRANCE! How fancy does that sound?! Ooh La La!  As with most of Europe, and especially picturesque midievel walled cities, parking is not easy. These streets were built before cars were invented. We parked at the bottom of a tall hill and when we pulled up this is the first thing we saw:

None for me thank you, I brought my own today (being the natural hustler I am, I have to admit wondering what I could rent Sparticus out for. He is often grumpy, but when he’s in the right mood he’s got mad skills- haha).

 We drove up to the quiant hill top city, strolled around, walked a million ancient steps up to an old church, took a ton of photos, did some shopping and then stopped for lunch overlooking the beautiful valley pictured below.collage2



Because we rarely eat beef in Switzerland, we ordered a entrecote with frites and a lovely layered aubergen au fromage (sirloin steak with french fries and layered eggplant with cheese) to share. We also had a big salad with chicken, avocado’s, and toasted sesame seeds- bon appetite at the Terrace restaurant- al fresco.

No romantic lunch date in France would be complete with out dessert. It was simply too hot for Crème brûlée or profiteroles, but its always a good time for glace’.
