Francais... et le coq.

And I'm off to Southern France!

{My job is awesome, by the way.}

I've been muttering French all week in preparation for France,
and now it's time to see what I actually remember from college.

I have a feeling I'm going to be pretty disappointed with my retention...
but oh well.

C'est la vie, non?

{Ha! I got that one...}

As I had all things French on the brain last night, 
I attempted my very first
Coq Au Vin...

and it was tres bien-
non, c'etait... magnifique!

{and really, really easy.}

I adapted the recipe from this one...
but I was out of change at the market, so had to skip the carrots.

Bon Appetit!
