Well, that may be, but there are certain compensations to be had as recompense. A severe hardship, I know, but somehow I also know you manage very nicely -:)

Wayne said...

What no hominy grits?

Aren't some of these musical groups? Didn't Mac and Cheese have a hit with Your Momma Don't Dance back in the 80s?

Bibi said...

Wayne is obviously more hip on 80's music than I am, if that's so about Mac and Cheese...!

I agree with Chuck...I'd hold off on the southern fare while in the City of Lights, but next time, if you're in the mood for good American food (I hope it still is...) try Joe Allen in Les Halles... Waaaay back I used to satisfy a culinary craving or two there. I don't know if it's gone 'big'....

Saretta said...

Good southern fare!

Hey, that sounds like a really good concert! I flew with the Black Eyes Peas in first class from Frankfurt to Los Angeles a year or so back. Nice bunch of kids. Even downloaded some of their music from iTunes on the flight (that was when Boeing was still doing inflight WiFi.)
Haven't heard of the other groups though.

Fried Green Tomatoes?
That us :-)

Funny~

Daryl said...

Perfect angle, perfect foods

Bob Crowe said...

Oh, that's a great picture. Good composition and color and it sure has a story.

We have a wonderful soul/Southern food restaurant, Sweetie Pie's, walking distance from my daughter's house. I could send you a Care package.

Virginia said...

Thanks for the offer Bob! I have all the soul food i can handle right here and even make my own from time to time. Sweetie Pie's cracks me up!

Sandi,
You know I think I 'll have to go have some of those tomatoes this week. Maybe a photo op as well!
Join me???

Chuck,
Yes, I satisfy myself with an assortment of pastries I should absolutely not have but do cheat a tiny bit.

JB,
I think you're right, there is a group called the Black Eyed Peas! Ha

Wayne,
I love me some cheese grits!

Bibi,
We were near Les Halles. Darn!

Hah!

Babooshka said...

I can safely say I will not miss a Manx kipper, Fish and chips, scallops or the other ahem delights of our dining here. Good grief no! I can't even get a half decent baguette and don't even get me started on " where are the garlic bulbs" and yes you do eat them not plant them. We have sole food here. not soul. My cushion is ready for the sin bin.

Here in SoCal we have some glorious French, Italian, Thai, Chinese, Mexican, Spanish, Greek, Lebanese, Ethiopian, Russian....etc, etc, etc restaurants....but in all my travels, I don't recall ever going to a restaurant or even passing by one that featured "American" food....hmmmmm.....

Pierre said...

I can easily share your feeling...

Louis la Vache said...

The poster missed Chicken Fried Steak with cream gravy and biscuits!

On rue Saint-Paul in the 4eme is Thanksgiving Restaurant, owned by Louisiana ex-pats and serving Louisiana fare. The place is packed with American ex-pats on Thanksgiving day.

«Louis» somehow missed Joe Allen in Les Halles.

Virginia said...

B,
Bienvenue!
We've been waiting impatiently for your sassy return!

Louis,
I've posted a photograph of Thanksgiving,the shop, here but didn't know about a restaurant by that name.

Rob said...

Sounds darn good, but not so sure about them collard greens.

JM said...

LOL! Very funny, V.! :-)

Jilly said...

This means, I'm sure, you'll never come back to Paris.....!

jb said...

There's even a group called "Collard Greens and Gravy"

You definitely got me smiling with this one, you clever girl.
